At The Motherhood, we like to multi task
We can blog, eat, browse Pinterest, watch a movie, and chase a cat, all at the same time!
You could say that our brain has too many tabs open, and we do not like focusing on just one topic, so here you will find it all!
Holiday and Travel
Family holidays, days out and trips away are enriching times for a family, they provide lifetime memories and opportunities to explore the world.
Toys, Games, Gadgets and Tech
Growing up toys can be fun, but also educational. With Nathan growing up we discover what tech and gadgets are out there for teens and families.
Food and Drink
Keeping the family happy with food is always important. Whether its eating out, or cooking and celebrating at home, we have ideas and suggestions to make your life easier.
As a family we love to explore The Arts, through music, theater, movies and more. We are huge movie buffs and you can find our latest Deezer playlist recommendations here.
The ups and downs of family life detailed through our blog posts. We do not sugar coat things and hope that we will be able to share some words of wisdom with other parents out there. Be it talks about parenting, puberty or dating, we have it all.
Arts, Crafts and Interiors
We love getting creative, be it making, sewing, painting or unleashing our interior creative flair, you will find our craft cupboard fully stocked at all times.
Fashion, Beauty and Wellbeing
We are all about promoting body positivity, and enjoying the simple things in life which make us feel good about ourselves.
We love getting out and snapping away with our cameras, you can find out what we are up to via our Instagram accounts @themotherhoodblog and @natebob06
