Nel the Mini Dreamer
Hi, I'm Nel. A mother of 3, with a big heart and mini dreams.
When I was young I remember wanting to be a mum. I was never in a rush, but I always felt it would be something I would be good at. Fast forward many years and here I am a mother of 3 beautiful souls, Sahara (5), Minnie (our angel), and Bodhi (1).
Motherhood isn't as easy as I thought it would be but the love and patience I have for raising them is.
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 $60 on baby record journal and I couldn't wait until she was born so that I could start to fill it with all her amazing moments. So you can imagine my disappointment when I became totally overwhelmed with a newborn that took up 110% of my time. I failed to find the hour I needed everyday to write all about her as 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.
I felt terrible that this one gift I wanted to give her when she was older was no longer possible and the mum guilts hit me hard. When she was a little older and I found myself with a bit more time on my hands I decided that no other mum would ever have to feel like I did and 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.
Life is all about family for me, everything else is a bonus.
