Hi, I’m Robyn.
I’m a 25 year old wife to S, and I am Mummy to my adorable one year old son B. We also have the family dog Watson Puppy!
I am a part time Marketing Director, and recently converted gym bunny, and over the last year I think I have come a little bit closer to finding my feet as a Wife, Mother and just general human.
The idea behind this blog is to give me a space to document my adventure through motherhood, and join many of the wonderful voices talking candidly about their own experiences, shout out to This Mama Life, Mrs Meldrum, Emily Norris, Louise Pentland, The Unmumsy Mum, Marie BitsandClips and who could forget the Scummy Mummies, and countless other social media mummies who have helped me through this first year!
The Scummy Mummies podcast really was a godsend when I eventually found it, I really recommend it. The first time I heard it was when B was a few weeks old. He was asleep in the next to me crib, and I had just managed a bath. I was sitting in a towel on the bed (getting dressed was too much at that point) and I was having yet another crisis of confidence about my ability to be a good wife, mum and general human. This was in the early stages of PND before I admitted I needed help. For some reason or another I popped it on as I needed some distracting, thank goodness I did! They had me in fits of laughter; the first time I had laughed in many weeks. I knew then that I wasn’t alone.
I have now realised that a lot of the time I am learning on the job – essentially winging it! And that that’s OK. So this is a blog for other parents who’re winging it, just like me!
