Hello, I’m Jessie and I have two beautiful babies called Noah and Oswin with my partner Matt. Noah is 2 and a half and Oswin is 5 weeks. I have decided to start a blog consistenting of product reviews, reviews of places we visit (from a parents perspective) and generally what our little family get up to.
Maybe we I can help someone who needs help deciding where to take two toddlers on a rainy day but more than anything I’m hoping I can just have somewhere I can write with purpose again. I need to get some use out of my ridiculously expensive psychology and criminal behaviour degree right?!
To be honest I never thought I would be almost 25 with two babies but I really wouldn’t have it any other way. I have a medical condition which is at the moment manifests as a mild disability and annoyance day to day but really it is a muscle wasting condition which has caused many members of my family to now be wheelchair users before the age of 60.
This terrifies me and makes my life seem somewhat short. I see this is as my future with no real prevention apart from to live as much as I can now whilst I am able to. For some people this might mean travelling the world or having an amazing career but once I started university I realised that my brain was fine, better than I had thought and it would be there for longer than my body was able. This made me realise what was most important to me, it didn’t take much to decide that it was family.
I am very close to my mum and sisters and I wanted to have that with my children. I wanted to go on adventures with my children and Matt whilst I was able to climb, run and play with them, before it started to become a chore or something I had to let someone else do with them.
So here we are, a week off turning 25 with a 2:1 in psychology and criminal behaviour, a toddler who has the ability to turn in to drop dead Fred, a new born baby girl and I have a good section of my life to adore and spoil them.
So that was a very quick summary of me and what this blog is, in somewhat more depth than I had planned but that’s OK! I hope you enjoy reading this and maybe even gain something from it. Jessie x
