Welcome to my world and my MummyBee blog. Thank you for taking the time to read it! My name is Melissa, I am married, in my early Thirties and have two young boys, 3 year old Harry and 9 month old Jack.
The aim of my blog is primarily a personal one, to basically take time out from the non-stop rollercoaster ride and the ups and downs of parenting two children. To hopefully give me a little time to re-cap and reflect on daily life and to think about my parenting skills and how I can improve on being a mummy. Since having my second baby, I have struggled with the demands of looking after two young children, feelings of guilt, feeling unorganised, lack of control at times and having virtually no time for myself have all played a part. All these things have created a slight imbalance and I have been trying to gain control ever since!
I thoroughly enjoy being a mummy to my scrummy boys, they are my first thoughts in the morning and my last thoughts at night and like any parent I love them to the moon and back. However I would be lying if I sat here and said I never moaned about the daily struggles of caring for two children, I cope because I am lucky to have a good support network around me but I still don’t mind admitting that I do not wish to see my children between the hours of 8pm to 6am! 🙂 This is my time to re-charge my batteries, catch up with the hubby, rest and as of now write my blog. In doing so I hope this blog will remind me to stop and pause, to take count and appreciate everything I have and to remember no matter how hard and tiring looking after my boys is.. to “bee” happy! If I can reach out to any other mums in a similar situation who are like minded and enjoy the honest truths about parenting then that would be great.
I will post things of interest… hopefully. I will write about things we do in our local area along with reviews of child friendly places, entertainment including restaurants and cafes. We enjoy reading, going to the theatre, walking and exploring the outdoors, eating homemade treats, and of course trains, planes and any other automobiles! Not to forget dinosaurs and pirates 🙂
And on that note, stay tuned for a review on a highly recommended pirate party entertainer, Captain Dan Tastic!
