Hi, I'm Louise a 29 year old Mum of three and this is my blog. I'm an ex early years educator who left the pre-school life far behind me to... stay at home and look after my own pre-schoolers! Ok so maybe it's not that different, except I don't get paid now, or a lunch break, or sick days... and no one says thanks at the end of the day.
Life as a stay-at-home-mum and home educator to three children is amazing, chaotic, frustrating and lonely in equal measure. I love it more than anything I've ever done before in my life and more importantly I know that it's exactly what I need to be doing for my children right now. But it's not always easy, infact sometimes it's really bloody hard (we've all been there right?) and at those times this blog is my outlet. It's my window to the world and it's how I share my thoughts and connect with other people who going through similar things. When things go wrong, I like to look for the positives and reflect on the lessons I've learned. If I didn't have this blog over the last year, I definitely would have lost my mind even more than I actually did.
I've been a Mum for nearly five years now, but I'm still finding my style, still trying to work out what defines me as a parent and as a woman. Kindness is one of my biggest passions... showing kindness and empathy to my children and raising them to be kind humans too. As they get older it becomes more difficult and more important and it's always something that's at the front of my mind.
Another thing that's really important to me is finding adventure in the everyday, making the routine moments special and appreciating the little things in life. We've chosen not to send our children to school or pre-school and so we're not tied down by routine and schedules. My mission is to take full advantage of that and make every day count. Even the simplest things can make the most treasured childhood memories, and I just want to give my children the best childhood we possibly can. I love finding easy and low cost ways to bring a little bit of extra magic and fun into our extremely ordinary lives.
