Who Am I?

“My Mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.”
Mark Twain

I’m Yvette Lamb, mum to two boys who are relentless, a ‘lil bit feral and the best things I ever made. Our little masterpieces. Welcome to my much-neglected funny and honest parenting blog (darn these kids getting in the way of regular posting).

Blow me down with a feather - I've only finally gone and written a new blog post! On parenting and social media: We see what people choose to show us, a perfect moment vs my messy reality... the outside of their life held up against the inside of mine...' Nobody has it all sewn up, remember that we all have stuff going on. Be happy, not super. Clicky link in profile. #parenting #pbloggers #parenting101 #love #family #baby #socialmedia #instadaily #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #instamood #reallife

When I can, I write a variety of things including feely, thoughtful stuff on  motherhood and identity, and funnies on life with young children. I am completely over attempting to be it all, so you won’t get any smugness, fakery, or err, useful knowledge on this mum blog.

When I’m not living the high-life at soft play or scraping Weetabix off chairs (I HATE WEETABIX SO MUCH), I run a small copywriting business, working with companies to increase reach, engagement and revenue. You can find out more about my oh-so-professional side HERE, if you like.

You can follow the blog on Facebook or Twitter but, you know, no pressure. I won’t be waiting around for you humming a lonely little tune while I do, or anything.
