Balancing family & parenting is a tough bag. Whether you have 4 children (or more!) or none at all, this place is for one and all. We all have some connection with family. Parenting is a blast but it’s also really hard work at times. Here you’ll find all sorts of guidance and experience, ideas and support, to get you through the tough times and help you truly appreciate the good times!

I have seen and known all different varieties of families. Mine is super close and we see each other all the time, sometimes travelling hundreds of miles just to be together. Mr.HIMA though is the complete opposite. Here I use my experiences to advise and reassure you that you’re not alone. Nothing last’s forever – the difficulties will pass and get easier. But in the mean time, sit back, relax and pull up a chair. Enjoy the stories I tell; I hope they help you in some way.

Don’t forget to leave me some comments with your thoughts, questions and own stories about family and parenting. You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram by searching Here I Mum Again.
