English born, Australian living, part Caribbean, Dutch surnamed, first time mum. It may seem like the start of an identity crisis but I like to think it makes me sound interesting.

My name is Amy. I’m 26. I live in Melbourne with my husband, my baby daughter and 2 dogs. At the moment I spend my waking hours looking after Amelia and cleaning up dog hair. At least, that’s what it feels like…

Despite how I feel some days I’m a lot more than just a mum. I’m a wife, a woman and a person with a mixed background. I eat too many sweet treats, have a penchant for sci-fi audiobooks and can’t resist an animated movie (even before kids!). I consider myself a kind person and would do anything to help someone feel good about themselves. Ironically though, I’m highly critical of myself and I put myself down like it’s a hobby.

If I sound like someone you’d like to be friends with, chat with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You can also help add to this blog if that’s your thing. You can tell me about your familyΒ here or flick me an email at hello@thismumlikes.comΒ if you’d like to get something off your chest and share it with others.
