I’m Jennie Pennie.
A mother of 3 from the northside of Dublin, Ireland.
I’m back from maternity leave almost 6 months now and am trying to inhale the glorious deliciousness of the newest member of our crew, juggle the everyday chaos of being a working Mum of 3, with the overarching hope of one full nights unbroken sleep.
I also have 2 other children, Millie (she’s 9) and Ziggy (he’s 7). I like them alot. I never really considered this when i had children – that they’d become my favourite way to spend time. But since time is short and they are the best company – i’m always looking for ways to steal meaningful moments.
I’m trying to relish this time and dance in the mess of motherhood.
To be a good enough mama; to fight perfectionism and remember i’m a human being, not a human doing.
I also heart coffee. Piping hot black coffee.
Ideally from a fine porcelain tea cup and saucer.
In reality, cold from a chipped stained mug.
But, when you’re breastfeeding a one year old all night guzzler with work on the horizon, you gotta go hard consuming extra energy and go easy on bleach staining mugs!
Here’s to being honest, trying something new and having no shame in letting go of the little things that really don’t matter…
