Welcome to my blog – all about babies, parenting and travelling with kids!
My name is Sharon Gourlay and I’m a Melbournian mum of three. I’m also a professional blogger and this is my latest blog which I hope will help others with parenthood and impending parenthood whether you are looking to travel with your baby for the first time or are wondering what to look for the in the perfect travel pram!
With three kids, I feel like I have been around the parenting block a few times. If there is something I have learned as a parent, it’s that I don’t know anything! Kids are great at constantly throwing curve balls at you and no two kids are ever the same.
When I decided to start this blog, I read up on different parenting styles and types to work out a way to describe me as a parent. None of them fit at all and struck me as very limiting. Successful parenting (which I define as getting through the day with everyone alive!) requires a range of strategies to work in my experience and no one approach fully makes sense to me.
If I had to describe myself as anything, it would be an average parent. I don’t think there is anything special about us apart from my ability to stay at home full-time with my own business that gives us many choices.
When it comes to travelling with kids, I am mostly a huge fan! I have had some trips where it all seems to have gone wrong and I wonder why I ever wanted to travel with kids. But mostly I love it!
I actually think babies are the easiest to travel with – so definitely don’t be turned off if you are reading this as a new mum. As they get more opinions, I’ve found them harder to travel with 🙂 So get out there and explore the world right now!
In the meantime, I hope you find something on this blog to help you with your own parenting journey.
