About Me & Monkey

I’m Lisa, first time Mum to Connie (aka Monkey).  When I was pregnant I did a lot of research about the way I wanted my birth to be and how I wanted to look after my baby, eg. baby wearing, breastfeeding, gentle/positive parenting, co-sleeping.  What I realised once she was here was that nothing could quite have prepared me for the reality of parenthood, that being said, I’ve loved every moment of it and can quite honestly say its the best job I’ve ever had!  As one article I read said “Read the baby not the books!”

I write about my discoveries of motherhood and the things that have worked (and not worked!) for us as we find our way through each day.  Connie’s cheeky grin keeps me going and makes every day worthwhile.
