Nel the Mini Dreamer

Hi, I'm Nel. A mother of 3, with a big heart and mini dreams. 

For as long as I can remember, I couldn’t wait to be a mum. I was never in a rush, but always felt it would be something I would excel at. Fast forward many years and here I am, a mother of 3 beautiful souls; Sahara (5), Minnie (our angel) and Bodhi (2). And while motherhood isn't as easy as I thought it would be, the love and patience I have for raising them is and so much more.

When Sahara was born I cannot tell you how excited I was. I went out and bought just about every gadget and piece of nursery furniture you can imagine. I spent a whopping $60 on a baby record journal and couldn't wait until she was born so that I could start to fill it with all her amazing moments - I didn’t want to forget a thing!

Like most first-time mums, it’s easy to overestimate having free time (what is that?!), and having a newborn took up 110% of my time. Despite my good intentions, I just couldn’t find the hour I needed everyday to write all about my new baby as I had planned. Instead I was busy breastfeeding, burping, rocking, putting her to sleep, laundry, cooking and... repeat! I tried to keep it up for 4 months before falling behind so badly that I threw in the towel, which for me was heartbreaking.

I felt terrible that this one gift I wanted to give my child when she was older was no longer possible and the mum guilts hit me hard. I decided that I didn’t want any other mum to ever have to feel like I did and, once Sahara was older and I had (some) free time, I started to design a product that was easy, fun and most importantly, quick!

After 2 more babies and a lot of going back and forth (I'm a Virgo, so I'm a perfectionist), I had a product I was proud of and one I was sure would be the perfect baby record book for future mums. I hope you enjoy filling it out as much as others have!

Big love,

Life is all about family for me, everything else is a bonus.
