Oh, so you want to know more about me? You do know there are more interesting pages on my blog, right?Oh? Still here? I will happily oblige you with a little bit about myself.
I have the power of anonymity here. As it is highly unlikely that any of you know me, I could be anyone. I could be a superhero. I could be perfect.
That couldn’t be further from the truth though. Perfect is pretentious. perfect is boring. You know what is interesting though? Flaws. Flaws are fun. Flaws are unique. Flaws are beautiful.
So, lets make this a little bit different, I’m going to tell you what I would pretend…
I am amazing at coordinating fashion
I pretty much suck at fashion. Dated clothes? Check. Mismatched colours? Check. If ever you are feeling nostalgic and want to be reminded of what fashion was like a decade ago, glance my way!
I suppose this has helped as a mother, I don’t know where I would find the time to fit in an obsession for fashion amongst chasing after my little one.
Good looking stylish mothers, I have to applaud you.
With all this parenting knowledge I am a super prepared mother
To date my gorgeous little terror has:
- Used our white cat as a colouring book
- Figured out that food not only tastes good but makes funny marks on Mommy’s face.
- Forced us to remove our cat door. Jail break!
It’s amazing what a baby can do in the space of a few minutes. She will keep thinking up new ways to surprise me.
I love long walks on the beach.
I am definitely not a fan of salty water. or sand. or being hot. or being half naked in public.
Unfortunately my little one has not figured out that the beach sucks and loves going. The sacrifices you have to make as a mom…
Since I was 17 I was a full time Nanny. I lived with various business parents who, sadly, were so focused on chasing money that they had no time to raise their children. Thats right, they had enough money to pay a full time live-in nanny and still wanted more.
I do not begrudge them this. Being overly maternal, even from a young age, I landed my dream job. I played mother to children and got paid for it.
This went on for a few different families before I met my husband, 14 years later. I now play mother to my own children and am looking forward to providing guidance across their whole lives, not just the early years. The pay is less and the hours are much worse, but I couldn’t imagine anywhere I’d rather be.
After accumulating a wealth of knowledge from my many years of nannying I created this blog to share my expertise with other mothers.
