Hello and welcome to FunnerMother.com!
As you might have guessed from the name, Funner Mother is all about how to make parenting enjoyable for both the parent and the child.
It’s almost become a badge of honour for parents to be stressed, overworked and exhausted…but it doesn’t need to be that way. Yes, raising children is always going to have stressful moments – but I firmly believe that it’s possible to have a balanced and enjoyable life while giving your children the time and attention they deserve.
And by enjoying life and your children, I don’t just mean having the occasional amazing holiday. I mean truly being present and thankful for the small things in life…eating dinner together, watching a film or just having a conversation in the car.
Easier said than done – and it’s impossible to do all the time. But it’s something I strive towards!
In fact, my biggest fear as a parent is getting to the point when my children moving away and suddenly realising I forgot to truly appreciate being around them.
For this reason, most of the posts on this blog will be about my experiences and lessons about parenting. I’ll also include housekeeping tips and advice, as this is an unavoidable part of being a parent! 🙂
Our ever-growing family now consists of me, my husband, our three wonderful children (Alex, James and Emily), and two dogs (a cavapoo named Bramble and a chocolate Lab called Disney). It can be a mad house at times – but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂
I post regularly on the FunnerMother.com blog, so if you have any questions or topic requests please contact me.
Enjoy the blog!
