Hi there and thank you for visiting They Call Me Mummy! Let me introduce myself.
I am a copywriter with some shiny awards and 18 years’ experience in the advertising industry. Now that I have three highly entertaining and thoroughly demanding little people calling me Mummy and keeping my feet firmly planted on the ground, I work as a freelance writer.
Being a stay at home mother is the toughest job I've ever done and one I struggle with daily. My hope is that by sharing my less-than-perfect parenting moments, struggles with identity as someone other than The Mother and the often laugh-out-loud chaos that my Adult ADHD brings to my life, They Call Me Mummy can be a place where other imperfect parents can come to exhale and say, "me too."
They Call Me Mummy has been honoured with many awards, making me a very proud mama of this bouncing blog baby of mine. Most notably, I was honoured as a Voice of the Year by BlogHer in 2013 (“Inspiration” category) and again in 2014 ("Heart" category).
This blog captures my life. Sometimes warm & fuzzy, often shriek-out-loud funny. Either way, you may need a Kleenex or two. In my spare time (between 1am and 6am) I've been writing a series of children's books, which are going to knock your socks off. Your kids are going to adore them, so watch this space.
