I’m Leah, stay at home mum to 18 month old Roo (affectionate name, his name isn’t that quirky…unfortunately) and wife to Mr MaxiMumsy. For the last year and a half I’ve been thigh deep in MaxiMumming aka pouring my heart and soul into motherhood, raising this wonderful little boy. I’ve finally gained some clarity now I’m starting to get a little sleep (I know I shouldn’t talk too soon, it may spook and go away again) and finally I feel like I need to get myself back on track.
As a former midwife and now mum of one, this blog will share the ups and downs, lessons learnt and pearls of wisdom from way too many trials and errors on a journey to find the balance between myself and motherhood.
So here I am MaxiMumsy, trying to maximise my potential and life as a woman, wife and mother and figure out who I am (I’ve only recently found out they’re not mutually exclusive, who knew!).
I truly believe we can be everything to the people we love without giving everything of ourselves.
