About Me Becoming Mum
Welcome to the home of my family, love and lifestyle blog, where I keep it real about the true realities of being a wife, business owner and, most importantly, stay-at-home mama.
I have found that motherhood can, on occasion, be a very lonely experience; and you can feel like moments in that journey are only happening to you. Social media - and even blogs to some extent - often only shows the happy, rosy moments; picked, chosen and reflecting an unrealistic view of life.
I try to show every side, the good, the bad and the ugly. So here I will share everything from toddler tantrums and anxiety breakdowns to holidays, 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 writer from home.
Being a mum means that I do not have much time for hobbies. Where I used to love a night out at the theater - or cinema - I now prefer a night in snuggled on the sofa with my hubby. Where I used to love horse riding, I now prefer to take my daughter to a local farm or zoo.
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
We are parents to two angels. Our first baby passed in August 2009 and our third baby passed in December 2015.
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. This year she will be starting school, a milestone that we are never going to feel ready for as parents, but she is super excited about!
Squidgy is a lover of all things purple and pink, with a keen interest in Paw Patrol and My Little Pony; whether its bed linen, toys or TV programmes. 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 has ensured from day one to now that she is never left out and gets all the same things as her sister.
Pickle dotes on Squidgy and so enjoys anything her sister is doing or has. She also has a massive love of being outdoors, especially if she gets to see animals or play with her sister; bonus points for both.
So there you are, that is my family. If you would be interested in working with us, please visit my Work With Me page.
