A little bit about us…
Hi, my name is Alex and I gave birth to my ‘little lamb’ in March of 2013. (I’m the pouting blonde on the right).
From my late teens I had a life plan. I knew I wanted to start a family in my mid-twenties, and at the age of 26, I brought my son Jaxson into the world.
I now work 3 days a week for luxury cashmere label Crumpet Cashmere as a fashion designer. I love my job, and was very lucky to land it 6 months after I completed my degree at the Colchester School of Art. Dreams really do come true!
I’m not surprised that people often ask me why I wanted to start my family at such an earlier stage in my career. But I just tell them it was part of my plan…
EDUCATION ? CAREER ? HOME ? FAMILY ? MARRIAGE
I’m a very driven and determined lady, so it all made sense to me. I remember a few years ago my mum telling me how proud she was of me for knowing what I wanted out of life. That’s always stuck with me.
I decided to start this blog with Vicky because nothing can prepare you for the challenges of becoming a parent. As a ‘modern mum’ with a dream of having a happy family and successful career, I want to share with you my achievements, struggles and most importantly, my adaptation to becoming a mummy, (oh, and my love of trips to Costa).
Hi, my name is Vicky and I had my ‘baby bear’ on 27th August 2013.
I gained my degree at Nottingham Trent University, graduating in 2006. Since then I’ve been building my career in marketing and last year seemed like a good year to have a ‘breather’ from work and start my ‘perfect little family’.
So 2013 was my year of the baby and I popped my beautiful Marnie out.
Having my little bear has been the most amazing, challenging and exhausting experience of my life. I’ve learnt so much about myself, my other half, family, friends and any sweet old dear that will listen to me rambling on in Sainsbury’s (my new favourite place to hangout).
That’s why we thought this blog would be a great place to share what we’ve learnt along the way. We promise not to make motherhood sound all cutesy, full of glitter poos and perfect babies, because at the end of the day that just isn’t realistic. We’re real mums, with real babies – trying to balance motherhood, work and relationships.
Welcome to Lamb & Bear. The place where unicorns are most definitely real.
