Sitting in a noisy soft play area wondering how the hell to start off my first blog post?! This is something I’ve wanted to do for ages but never found the time to actually set it up and get started. So here we go, surrounded by snotty kids (one of which is my own) and a view of the pissing rain, my first blog post is created.
I’m Hollie, 28 years old from Brighton and a mum of three kids all at different stages of their lives. I work part time in an office and also run a personalised clothing store with my sister (www.infinitykids.co.uk).
My eldest is Harvey, he is 10, we are currently in the stages of looking at Secondary Schools (what the actual?! Swear I only left school last year!). Harvey is football and Xbox mad, standard really for a ten year old boy right? Our relationship can be strained at times which you’ll discover more as my blog progresses, but I know he’s got a good heart even if I do get the brunt of his mood swings.
Lola is 7 and the middle child. Obsessed with gymnastics and incapable of walking more than 5 steps without doing a cartwheel, seriously, I can be in the shop and have to ask her at least three times to just walk properly. Lola is currently giving me a preview of what it’s going to be like to have teenagers in the house as she is 7 going on 17. My helpful, innocent little girl is slowly morphing into a mini teenage me and we still have 6 years to go until she even is in her teens. Lord help me!
Then there is Mila, the phrase ‘looks can be deceiving’ was 100% formed with her in mind! 2 years old and the sassiest person I have ever met in my whole 28 years on the planet. You wouldn’t think she has two siblings, she suffers from ‘only child syndrome’ without being an only child. I’ve said it a thousand times, if she had been my first, she would have been my last LOL. She is hard work, some of the stories I have of her you couldn’t even write, BUT I’ve never met anyone who makes me laugh so hard until my belly hurts.
This blog will explore all different aspects of parenting from toddlers to almost teen, as well as fashion, beauty and lifestyle – if you want a bit of everything mixed with a little chaos then I’m sure my ramblings will entertain you to some extent.
