Our story...

When my eldest was born in 2010 I found motherhood wasn't what I expected.


Don't get me wrong, I thought he was the best thing since sliced bread, but there was something not quite right. I struggled to bond with him and didn't enjoy our time together.


I started spening money on toys and trips to compensate, but it didn't help how I felt.

Just before he turned two I was diagnosed with postnatal depression. By that time my mental health was so bad that I had to leave my job.


Suddenly I had lots of time on my hands, and now that my mental health was improving I started to spend more meaningful and creative time with him.


Jump forward four years and we were blessed with our second little boy.


I decided to do a course in home-based childcare and that is where I learned about play theory


I began trying my ideas on him and​ couldn't believe it, he was so engaged, and his learning was natural and enjoyable.

When we were blessed with our third baby boy I was so excited to share our creative and playful learning with him as well!

Now, as a household of three boys, life is pretty hectic, but I try to leave the mountains of washing and endless cleaning to spend a little playful and creative time with my children each day.

I hope you'll find a little time to sit down, have a cuppa, and join us...
