Welcome to Belle Amie Mother of Three. This is a brand new blog, and blogging is my brand new hobby! I’m a bit excited this is my first ever blog and I am not sure how to start it so I am just going to blurt out what ever comes in to my head. Let me start with a bit about me, my family and why this blog has come to life.
THE HUSBAND. My husband of 13 years, is in the Air Force. What this means for us as a family, is he is away from home a lot so I am the chaos manager who runs this rock show on my own most of the time!
THE UNDOMESTIC GODDESS (ME). After having spent 13 years in the Army I have given it up to become a full time mum, that’s right from Soldier to Stay at Home Mum! No more dropping the kids off while it’s still dark, driving for an hour in city traffic to work, having a hard day, driving an hour home, picking up the kids, cooking tea and putting everyone to bed, and being left feeling is this really what it’s all about. No more for me. Over the last two years I have become a full time mum, and it really was a harder transition than I had expected. The feelings of giving up your career, something you had worked so hard for and swapping that for school lunches, sticky hands and ear infections left me feeling confused. However I have evolved and I now love my new role in life and wouldn’t swap it for the world! So I will spend 2012 a happier person that is my new years resolution, to be happy. That is the reasoning behind this blog, that’s why you need to go to About Me to hear the whole story as I have started this blog as a kind of journal of my new journey. I also hope to help new mums, and new stay at home mums learn just how great it really is as I have been there done that! I probably should have just said “I am a 33 year old stay at home mother of three” but there really is so much more to this story!
THE LITTLE PEOPLE.Master 7, best big brother ever, Little Miss 4 starts Kindy tomorrow (we both can’t wait), and Mr Chilled 1, most chilled out kid I have ever met!
THE BLOG. So for those that just skimmed the cool bits, this blog is new, thanks for visiting, follow me and I will give you tips, experiences, ideas on anything to do with being an Undomestic Goddess! Thanks to my sis and husband for getting me started! What does Belle Amie mean, it’s French for ‘Beautiful Friend’ and this blog is going to be my new best friend!
