I am Mum to….

Alfie, aged 5

The best bits about being a Mum are….

Being a significant influence in Alfie’s life and helping him to become a confident and well-rounded little man. He is always on the go and is a loveable, cheeky, very funny, bright and happy child. Our favourite time together is using our imagination to tell each other stories and come up with wild adventures.

The most challenging bits about being a Mum are….

Trying to fit everything in with work, homework, trying to be super mum, cleaning the house, managing my condition and still having a tiny amount of time to spoil myself.

The best piece of advice I could give other mums is….

Listen to your child and don’t feel guilty for spending quality time on yourself.

Since I’ve become a Mum I….

have become more confident, learnt to multi task on a whole new level with very little time and speak up a lot more than I used to.

My best mum photo is this one because….

I am with my best bud whilst on holiday in France where we spent three amazing weeks together this summer.
