making space

My name’s Kate. Over six years ago I became a mummy. My life massively changed! I left my career, fell madly in love and started the biggest learning curve of my life.

Your new must have accessory

Before I had my son I thought I was pretty experienced when it came to young children. I'd worked in church crèche for many years, spent loads of time with my niece and nephew and changed countless nappies, what could possibly be a surprise? Here's ten things I didn't get before I became a stay at home mummy:

Look after the pennies

Being a Mummy can be expensive, and those little treats like the odd coffee in town, or the usual baby groups, or snacks for our little ones, can suddenly all mount up. If you're like me, you might be trying to fit in lots of fun activities with your child whilst also sticking to a very tight budget. Here's my tips on how to save those pennies:

Every step counts

Do you ever make time to reflect? To stop and think about the year you've had. The pitfalls, the successes, the lessons learnt? It can be easy just to get caught up in life, the busyness, the stresses and the joys that we can just get carried along, without giving much thought to where we've come from or more importantly, where we're going. But if we ever want to achieve our goals, ...

New Mummy

When I look back on those first few weeks or months of motherhood, there are a few things I wish someone had told me. So in case you haven't heard it before, or really need to hear it now, I'll say it for you.

Contented Mummy?

I want to tell any mothers-to-be reading this one piece of advice, which had I known would have saved me a lot of false expectations that came crashing down after I had my boy. You don't have to love every single part of motherhood to be a great mum, and what's more, you certainly won't love every part!

Tired Mummy

I don't think I used to fully appreciate the true value or meaning of rest before I had Jonas. I enjoyed it, but I didn't realise how important it was, until it became such a rarity. If you're a mum, you will probably agree that since having your gorgeous baby (or babies!) finding time to stop, or relax, or time for yourself, or even time to sleep can seem at best difficult or at worst impossible.

Before I became a mummy I loved my career, I loved my job and the satisfaction that came from completing massive projects, or the sense of achievement from getting that promotion. I had worked hard to get to the place. Yet I left. This was not because I have no ambition when it comes to career. Not because it was an easy option. Not because I just didn’t have to work financially. But because we ...

Running Away!

Let me set the scene for you. My son throws something on the floor, I calmly and casually ask him to pick it up. He says 'No'! I ask him again, this time sounding slightly more firm but still fairly laid back. He says 'No' again. I then tell him sternly to pick it up. Guess what he says, 'No'! I then loudly tell him to pick it up before he decides to run into another room. Never one to back down ...

Before Children

This is what a normal day in our household looks like. Jonas wakes up, if I'm organised enough I will have woken up before him to shower and get myself ready. I put him on the potty (and continue to do so regularly for the rest of the day), get him dressed, we go downstairs, I make him breakfast. I wash up all the dummies and beakers he used last night. I empty the dishwasher, and then load it, ...

Are you having a hard time right now? Maybe things are difficult? Maybe you have gone through something really tough. Maybe you're scared, or disappointed. You wonder why you have gone through some things. You question, will things get better? Let me tell you right now, YES! God is a restoring God, and he never leaves us in difficult things, His purpose is always to lead us through things and on ...
