About Me Becoming Mum
Welcome to the home of my family, love, lifestyle and travel blog. Here I keep it real about the true realities of being a wife, business owner and most importantly, stay-at-home mama.
I’ve found that motherhood can be a very overwhelming and lonely experience. Social media, and even blogs to some extent, often only shows the happy, rosy moments; and it’s easy to forget that these are carefully selected, probably from a fair few photos taken, and can sometimes reflect an unrealistic view of life.
My aim is to show every side of this amazing journey… from the milestones and happiest moments to toddler tantrums and breakdowns. I am also here to share our favourite holiday destinations, days out and must have products.
My name is Naomi. I'm in my late twenties and although in the past I worked as a retail manager for GAME Retail Ltd, I'm now a stay-at-home mama to my two beautiful daughters; running my business, blog and working as a freelance copywriter from home.
Alongside my husband and my children, the other major part of my life is my business, Mama Naii's Crochet. I create handmade crochet gifts and keepsakes, mainly for babies and children. You can read more about Mama Naii's here on my site.
About My Husband
I have been with my husband John for almost ten years seven of which we have been married. He is my rock and supports me in all my endeavours; always by my side, long suffering and putting up with me through thick and thin.
Without him, I would not be the woman I am today; he completes me and epitomises the true meaning of the phrase "other half". Not only is he an awesome husband, but also the best daddy to our girls!
John works as a retail manager for a large fashion company, a job that certainly keeps him busy but thankfully allows him to be around when we need him. He is a true Toffee (Everton supporter); a lover of all things cricket, from playing to watching; and the most amazing cook, especially his toad in the hole and stir frys!
About Our Children
As well as our two beautiful daughters, we also have, on more than one occasion, suffered a miscarriage. You can find some posts on breaking the miscarriage taboo, and other awareness issues here.
Squidgy is our first rainbow baby and joined our family in February 2014.
She is a lively, happy daddy's girl who definitely brightens our days. She is a unicorn loving girly girl, whose favourite colour is purple and loves all thinks shiny, glittery, Paw Patrol and My Little Pony.
She is the most loving, precious little girl, wise beyond her years and a massive healing to me in so many ways.
Pickle is our second rainbow baby and joined our family in December 2016.
She is a personality filled mummy's girl, who loves books and being outside, whatever the weather!
Pickle dotes on Squidgy and enjoys anything her sister is doing or has, playing and sharing so nicely (most of the time) and expecting her to do the same.
So there you are, that is my family. If you would be interested in working with us, please visit my Work With Me page.
