ABOUT ME

Hello! And welcome to my blog...

My name is Emma (I like Em) and I live in Birmingham. I have two small children. A beautiful six year old girl and a crazy for year old boy. I also live with my husband Stephen, dopey dog Lucy and a guinea pig called Anna. 

I started this blog in December 2013 as I was going utterly brain dead looking after children all day and not having any responsibility at work anymore (I used to be a busy head of my department). I like to use my little space on the internet to document the highs of being a Mum (for example adventures and cheesy stuff like love) but also a lot of the time I moan about the lows (tantrums, being a crap wife and struggling with every day issues).



Whilst we have lots of blogs that show the beautiful side of being a parent, and insta-shams full of smiley well behaved children. I want to show that whilst we love our kids unconditionally. Sometimes? Being a Mum is hard...and being crap at it is OK.

I have been featured all over the world (which, if you could see me now, typing in my Matalan pyjamas on a bit of a grubby bed that could do with being changed, is hilarious) from the Mail Online to Australia's top women's website Mamamia. From CNN to Mumsnet and The Huffington Post. I've been on live TV on BBC2 and the BBC news see me as an expert in tantrums. I've had my fair share of abuse for stating that everything isn't perfect. But that's OK isn't it? As it just goes to prove my point!


For more of my day to day life come and join in the fun over on my Facebook page. Which contains 1000's of amazing women (and the odd ace man) who are always up for a giggle. Ever month I organise a little meet up so it would be fantastic if you could pop along too!


Hope you have a lovely day and that your children go to bed this evening without a struggle.

Love Em x

  6. Hi there,

    I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I'm working on a home education project, and I think it’s something you could definitely relate to. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.

    Thanks!
