I ’m a mum to Tall Boy, born in 2016, and boy girl twins born in 2019. Tall Dad and our two naughty tortoiseshell cats are stuck right in beside me.
This is my corner of the internet. A place to write about my experience of pregnancy and motherhood. Hopefully I’ll pick up some tips and advice from experienced mummies along the way.
I want to share the highs and lows of parenting three children. I want to create a place for Manchester mums to find local information about everything from antenatal classes, to child friendly activities, to bars that offer a good range of virgin cocktails (coz sleep deprived mammas still want to go out), and that mothers from further afield can stumble upon to find advice, tips and reviews as I stumble along this parenting journey.
Well, I’m 5 ft 11 tall. Most of the time I love my height – so did my netball team until I told them I was pregnant. But my 36”-37” inside leg and Mr Tickle arms make buying clothes a challenge at the best of times, and a near impossibility when I was pregnant. It’s not surprising then that I had to do a bit of research to find some wardrobe staples to see me through two pregnancies.
I live in Manchester and I’ve been blogging about my life here for a few years. I didn’t think that readers of my other blog, www.beccibrown.com, would be impressed with a barrage of parenting posts scattered amongst the reviews and recommendations for things to do in the city. When I started to research pre natal exercise classes and opportunities to meet new mums it struck me that it would be much easier if the information was pulled together in one place – so that’s what I’m going to do.
For everyone reading this, I would love to have your input. Feel free to share your own views, tips, trials, tribulations and experiences with morning sickness – because one thing I know, three years in to parenting, is that it is damn hard, but there is always comfort in finding someone else going through the exact same thing.
I’d like to invite you to join me on my journey through motherhood. My first post is probably the best place to start, then feel free to have a browse around. If you’ve got time I’d love for you to say Hi!
