I can't tell you how ridiculous this feels! It's a bit like writing a diary and letting the whole world read it. I can only hope that mummy-brain doesn't strike too often! I suppose the best place to start is to tell you who I am and how I got here...

When I became a mummy just over four years ago, it was simultaneously the happiest, cuddliest, strangest and funniest thing I had ever experienced. Jack was born in 2006, followed by Phoebe in 2007 and Maisie in 2010. Obviously, having three babies so close together creates a fair amount of chaos. You'd be crazy to expect otherwise! As a coping mechanism, I began using little tidbits of my days at home with the kidlets for my Facebook status updates. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE being at home with my babies. If I had the choice, I would never go back to work. But everybody has those moments when motherhood gets extraordinarily messy, and if you can get a giggle out of those horrendous, vomit-soaked, poo-encrusted, dribbled-upon days, then more power to you!

I am definitely challenged in the IT department, so this may not be the prettiest blog spot for a while. But I am excited about sharing some funny stories with whoever cares to read them, if only to vent on days when the Napisan just won't get the stains out. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do!
