Yeay, you found us!
This Adult Thing is not your average parenting blog; here the emphasis is on you! Our aim is to support you through life’s ups and downs. The good, the bad and the ugly!
So many women feel like they lose a little bit of themselves once they become a parent and forget that they are important too. Which is why I’m passionate about helping you to find and get back to your best self once again.
One of the things my readers love is my “real life” approach to parenting because let’s face it, we all know how it really goes down!
Come take a look around, find your motivation and follow your dreams.
WHO AM I ? … A question I ask myself daily!
I’m Naomi, in my late thirties and a mum of three little “treasures”! Aged 18, 10 & 7. Yes! Before you say it, that is a huge age gap. Why? I suppose some people just never learn eh!
I am a single mum and have been for many years, 12 to be precise. In all honesty, I think it will probably stay that way FOREVER now (I’m ok with that).
In a previous life, I worked as a beauty therapist, I am a fully trained hairdresser and have studied lots of alternative therapies; you’d imagine I’d be pretty zen in this case, let me tell you I’m not!!
I am a bit of a stressy scatterbrain, obsessive organiser, home and life “rearranger.” That said, I am always looking for a reason to be happy no matter what life brings my way. So you will find plenty of encouragement from me here.
Your health and happiness are the most important thing. Don’t let anything stand in their way.
Two of my kids are on the Autistic spectrum. Aiden, the eldest reached the grand old age of 17 before being diagnosed. We muddled through the years together and managed to make it this far without any significant hiccups.
In 2007 along came Lauren, diagnosed “auti” at 5. Well WOW! What a journey it has been so far with this one. Putting our current life phase in polite terms, it is indeed a challenge!
Three years on and throw another one in the mix. Harrison or as we call him “H”. He is so full of beans and is constantly bouncing around. I’m pretty sure has an endless “word quota” In fact, I’m unsure he actually breathes!
