BritMums blogging prompt: WHO are you?

Posted on Updated on

So the BritMums blogging prompt this week is:  In 100-200 words WHO are we? (Really got to cut the waffle for this one!)

We are More than a Mum. We want to support women in being brilliant Mums, AND help them to rediscover their own identity.

We are Loretta and Ruth, two Mums who love being parents, but don’t want to lose our own identities or stop thinking intellectually. We both work part-time, to varying degrees; we both love a good socio-political debate; we both love sharing the hints, tips and traumas of motherhood and that’s what our blog is about.

Our posts range from the trials and tribulations of our own motherhood, to discussion of news stories that have a family resonance. We are going to blog about recipes (just sorting out my Sloe Gin one now!), craft ideas, and kid-friendly activities as well as parental concerns, me-time ideas and our own experiences. We also want to create a forum for other Mums (and Dads) to discuss some of the big debates surrounding childhood and parenthood.

We fancy being the Marie Claire of Mummy Blogs…We like to aim high!

187 words – done it!

    Very glad to have found this blog. Since I’ve been a mother, I’ve always struggled with knowing that I want to still be ‘me’ and not get lost in the role of ‘Mum’. It’s good to know that I’m not alone!

    I agree with you guys. My 11 y/o looks outraged when I tell her I am going out for the evening. This is a very rare occurance and usually involves going to my sisters for tea and cake (nothing too outrageous there!). Children need to see their parents as humans who work, pay bills & socialise as well as Mummy’s and Daddy’s who provide for their every need!

      It’s very important you keep a few things for you.
