Hi there! I’m Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, the baby of the family, Willow, my little lady Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy writing, travel and getting out and about.
Life has changed incredibly over the last few years. I’m now experiencing the challenge of the forever balancing act. Running between a baby and a preschooler. Most of it amazing but often damn hard. Nothing is ever peaches and roses but I’m tackling each day as it comes and enjoying the ride as my little ones take on a new world of their own.
In my blog I have shared my struggles with parenting one, then two, my weight, the happiness that I find in raising kids and my own questionable sanity.
Becoming a Mum was and still is mind blowing. I always expected it to be hard. I was one of the last of my friends and family to get there so I’d seen the struggle second hand. I soon learnt I knew nothing. No parent who has interest in the continuation of evolution would actually let you know what really happens. Armed with very little actual knowledge of what was going on I had this little screaming, mess who was what they refer to as an ‘awake’ child (didn’t like sleeping) relying solely on me. WTF. I quickly realised I needed to build a community to help me survive the craziness of my new life. That is how I came to be here, I never want another parent to feel alone in this gig so I’m sharing as much information as possible to help normalise the trivial and traumatising aspects of parenting.
I like to think positively and act passionately, you never know what is around the corner. Please join me as I take on the world as a Mum to two. This is MY YEAR
