This is my story. About being a mumma. And being little. Because, by all accounts, I am both. A vertically challenged mother of two (who is crazy original with the blog names).
Interests: Eating a meal while it's still warm, going to the toilet alone, drinking wine through a funnel

There is, I am convinced, no picture that conveys in all its dreadfulness, a vision of sorrow, despairing, remediless, supreme. If I could paint such a picture, the canvas would show only a woman looking down at her empty arms. Continue reading

On October 11, 2014, after many years of faithful service, I finally gave my boobs the gold watch they’ve worked so tirelessly to earn. If my boobs were not desperate to retire, I certainly was. I suppose my original plan for breastfeeding was to make it to 12 months but... Continue reading

I noticed immediately that someone had switched my chair. When I sat on it, it felt strange and sort of flat the way an office chair gets over time when too many bums have sat on it – like the cushioning is all but gone. I hate that kind of... Continue reading

**Note: this post was written back in 2010 but for some reason, the link to the original post is broken so I'm republishing it here so I can link to it in another post. You can tell it's old because I use phrases like "That's just how The Little Mumma... Continue reading

Luca. The name is like music to me. It sings on the lips. And eight years ago, this beautiful name took on the shape of a baby boy, making it infinitely more musical. I vividly remember the night before he was born. A restless sleep in a strange hospital bed.... Continue reading

If you could know what it feels like to reveal a piece of your soul and then be showered with the kindness and support that I have been showered with, you would understand that it is worth the risk. Continue reading

We went out to celebrate Bren’s 40th on Saturday night. Ten of us ventured out in the frankly blizzard-esque conditions and had a really lovely dinner. It was a subdued evening and we were all home in bed by midnight. But I don’t trust my brain so I took a... Continue reading

Since Brendon started his new career as an engineer late last year, there has been an element of our relationship that is something akin to passing ships in the night. Leaving at around 5:30am each morning and returning at 7pm each night, it’s hard to recall what he looks like... Continue reading

Sometimes I watch on enviously as my single child friends go about their parenting business. I'm not saying it looks easier necessarily, but it looks quicker. For example, when it's time to go, parents with one child just, you know, go. They grab one school bag and strap one kid... Continue reading

While Bren was away for work, I sent a text to a friend, “Doing this gig alone has given me time to reflect on just how much I don’t enjoy motherhood.” I sent it with an intended element of mirth but I sat with my statement for a little while,... Continue reading

#wine #notpiss #important What’s your greatest fear? It’s a question I’ve never been able to answer with conviction. Others reply without pause – SNAKES! SPIDERS! BEING STUCK IN AN ELEVATOR PLAYING MARIAH CAREY ON REPEAT! Vivid, very specific fears. I have a friend who is so deathly afraid of slugs... Continue reading

...modified romance that makes way for toilet training and general domestic drudgery. Life with small kids is the antithesis of passion, but I am passionate about our life together. While ever that’s still true, I think we’re okay. Continue reading

Maybe How Old knows me better than I know myself. #12yearsold4lyf Harlow has this way of replacing the first consonant or two in some words with ‘fw’ – hence cream becomes fweam, promise becomes fwomise, Granma becomes Fwanma and so on. It’s obviously very cute and the day she stops... Continue reading

From the time I was just a girl, I always knew I would be a mum. No matter what else I did with my life, I felt that motherhood would be a part of it. And having this dream come true was everything I thought it would be. I recall... Continue reading

Sleepy-faced and shielding his eyes against the light, he appeared at the kitchen door. Seeing me, he smiled, his eyes still squinting half-shut against the brightness. "Good morning," I said softly and held my arms out. He ran towards me and I scooped him up, same as every morning. And... Continue reading
