The Mummy Bubble is a parenting and lifestyle blog for mamas of young children, offering parenting SOS tips, inspiration and funny tales from the frontline of motherhood. I’m a big fan of kindness and this is a judgement-free zone.
Hello! I’m Vicky, a mum of two gorgeous girls – aged four and two. I live in the South East with my husband. I love food, travel, a good walk, a decent movie and a compelling TV show to get hooked on.
Until recently I was a full-time working mummy, dividing my time between playing hide-and-seek with my little ones and chasing the news as a reporter for a national newspaper.
But I’m taking a change in direction and becoming a stay-at-home mama while trying to grow my own business through this lovely blog that I’ve created.
I launched The Mummy Bubble because I wanted a hobby – something that was all for me – during my second maternity leave in 2017. I quickly became addicted to it!
Becoming a mama was a difficult adjustment for me. While I desperately wanted children, the exhausting nights, guilt over giving up breastfeeding and being surrounded by dirty nappies has been a shock to the system.
It felt a bit like being in a bubble – my entire life changed overnight! I thought I was on my own in the bubble, and began writing my thoughts as a form of therapy to help me cope with the tears and tantrums.
But what I found was lots of other mamas who feel exactly the same way! We are actually all in this Mummy Bubble together.
Blogging about my experiences has made me feel less alone – because for every embarrassing or stressful tale there’s dozens of other mummies who have been in the exact same boat – and helped me laugh in the face of those tough days.
What to expect at The Mummy Bubble
There are a lot of virtual high-fives here – I love being a mum, but it’s a tough gig! The lack of sleep, the crying, the tantrums, the potty training, the CBeebies on loop – it’s a wonder we stay sane.
So expect the truth about parenting – without any sugar-coating – a lot of kindness towards your fellow mama, fun and frolics, and lots of gushing about my two beautiful little monkeys.
I love to share my parenting SOS tips, highlight my favourite child and baby products, as well as big up fun and fabulous places to visit with the family. I love a good list, so you can find a lot of handy tips and ideas in list form on this site!
