Trials and Tribulations of a Mature Mother The Trials and Tribulations of a Mature Mother

Here is a little more about us...


Me
I am the one who writes the blog (among other things), mothers the children and generally attempts to impose some sort of order on the chaos we live in. Sometimes I fail, but I am an eternal optimist and keep trying. Or should that be I'm an untrained pessimist...?

Motormouth
Motormouth was born in 2010 and has a question for every step he takes during the day. Considering he is an early bird (being awake at six am is late for him) and runs everywhere, this makes for an awful lot of questions. And some of them are really, really complicated. Why do we have two hands anyway?

Mini
Mini is the baby of the family, born in 2012. So far she has proven to be placid and happy, except when Motormouth's hair comes within reach, in which case she is grabby and happy.

The Other Half
The Other Half, who makes an occasional appearance in the blog, acts as the centre of calm in the whirlpool of our life. (Calm unless he is at a heavy metal gig in which case, who knows?)
The Other Half
Asbo
Asbo is a tuxedo cat with 4 white paws. He does a good impression of a furry shark when Mini is feeding. She is only just discovering the delights of gravity, which means he is discovering the delights as well. He is bigger and braver than his sister. He’s not quite as bright though. Asbo
Tika
Tika is a tabby/tortie female. She is small and timid. And smart. She likes sleeping under Motormouth’s bed. He doesn’t know this, which is probably why she still does it. Tika
