Hello and welcome to the Brilliant Mum Feature. Once a week I will be featuring one mum in a bid to find out more about them and their lives.
If you’d like to take part in this series, simply fill in this form.
This week our brilliant mum feature is Naomi from Boo Berrit.
Naomi is a married mum to almost two (currently 39.5wks pregnant) and part time student/full time blogger-possibly master of none! She’s based in the NW of England, raising their Anglo-Hellenic family with no support as her family are all from the south and her hubby’s are all in Greece. Naomi says it can be a struggle, but a shared love of food and over expressive hand gestures (I’m possibly more Greek than him at times) gets us through! That and regular jaunts back to the fatherlands!
Thanks for taking part Naomi!
Have you always wanted to be a mum?
No, not until I met my husband (to be) at 30/31.
How did you feel when your children were born?
Elated and relieved before my son (my 1st) was born I suffered an ectopic pregnancy and then a miscarriage at 14wks. My life realigned itself when I became a mum and everything changed.
What have been your most rewarding experiences so far as a mum?
Just being able sustain and maintain a unit, I’d always been a bit flakey n wushu washy before, going where ever when ever and happily packing up and moving on at a moments notice just for fun. I’ve become far more grounded and motivated/focussed as a mum!
What are some of your funniest moments to have happened to you as a mum?
Every day for me tends to be a comedy of errors, especially in the first year… from unknowingly walking around with my nursing bra undone and my boob out to walking out the house without my skirt on… it’s an understatement to say it took a while for my brain to catch up!
Have there been any situations with your children that you have found difficult to cope with?
Just the initial loneliness and fear that any f up I made had consequences on this little dude that needed me for everything!
What are your dreams and hopes for your children?
That they are able to live a full life that facilitates their hopes and dreams and that they manage to achieve such aspirations while also be decent humans.
