I’m a writer turned Mummy turned Mummy blogger.
The reason I started this blog was to figure out what it meant to be a mom to my then six month old daughter. Now I have two little girls and not one shred of sanity or patience left to my name. But boy do I have two adorable little terrorists. It’s dawning on me that I won’t have this Mom business completely figured out for awhile (if ever!) so in the meantime I write when I can.
The name funnymummy came about 1) because every other name was already taken and 2) I thought it sounded good. But much to my hubby’s dismay he’s reminded of an actual mummy with the rags wrapped around it and everything. King Tut was not really the image I was going for. Secondly, I’m not British so it’s pretty much false advertising. I can’t even pretend to do a good English accent. I’m a complete sham!
I used to write a daily post but now I’m lucky if it’s a monthly post. I do all my best composing in the shower away from all the chaos and screaming. But with two kids now it’s almost impossible to shower let alone write, but somehow I find the time to do one or the other. Showering usually wins and I think the hubby is happy about that.
I live in California with my funnyhubby, adorable munchkins, and menagerie of pets. We love going to the beach, watching the home improvement channel, and eating burritos. My hopes for this blog are to share a few humorous stories and figure out how to get over my own hangups so that my daughters won’t have my issues along with their own.
Wish me luck, lord knows I’ll need it!
