Making sweet music

One of my favourite sounds is when one of our children gets the xylophone and a drumstick and bangs away trying to make a tune. I think that also works both ways too! I made it my mission to learn some simple songs on it and our eldest LOVES it!

Share, Share... SHARE!

Starting out your journey as a parent can be so daunting and lets face it, a little overwhelming. Whether you are in pregnancy, pre pregnancy or adopting, the journey ahead is exciting but any step towards the unknown brings different feelings out for different people which sometimes catch you off guard. 

Share information, share clothing and share your time to make memories with those who want to share them with you. Make time to ask your friends, no matter how far along their own life journeys they are, how they are doing.

The Monton Mama

Hello fellow Mums, Dads, parents to be and anyone else who has made it here!

I am Heather aka The Monton Mama  and this is my first ever blog! 

As a mum of 2, I have had my fair share of "firsts" over the last few years so why not start a blog! 

Having baby number 2 arrive just 6 weeks before lockdown, it was a bit of a shock to find my partner and our little boy of just 15 months at home with myself and the little lady, so I can only imagine what life has been like for those who have been navigating their way through the first throws of parenthood!
