Hi! I’m Bunny 🐇
I live in New Zealand with my two amazing boys (10 and 1) and my incredible partner, who I’m pretty sure is the best man on the planet.
I started this blog as a way to document my journey to define my identity and figure out who I am outside of “mum” – and I wanted to help other mums who didn’t know who they *were* as well.
Through blogging I was able to come to terms with the fact that that I have postnatal depression and anxiety (which explains a lot!). I try to be very open about my struggle, as it’s one that’s shared with so many other parents. I don’t want any parent to ever feel like they’re alone.
I’m trying to shift the trend of negativity that seems to surround parenthood in social media – because yes, it is hard… But it’s also one of the most incredible, fulfilling, hilarious, exciting, pride-instilling, amazing things you’ll ever do. I want to help other parents focus on that, because for me, it makes the hard parts easier to deal with – and proves that it’s worth it.
It is so important for us to look after our mental health so that we can love ourselves and our lives, and teach our beautiful little humans to do the same ❤ I’m a huge advocate for prioritising self care. Looking after ourselves as parents means we are so much more able to nurture and grow our kids into the wonderful people we want them to be.
So that’s me! If you have any questions about what I write about – or if you’d be keen to contribute a guest post – feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep glowin’, mama!
