Hey guys, Welcome to my blog!
A bit about me, I’m Laura, a 21-year-old mum of one.
I live in Victoria (Australia) with my Husband Charlie, our daughter Alayna and our 2 cats, 3 chickens and 1 rabbit! I fell pregnant at 18 and had my daughter at 19, I completed year 12 ten days before I was due to give birth. Charlie and I are high school sweet hearts who met at 16, dating by 17, engaged by 20 and married at 21.
I am studying a complete course in personal training online (cert 3+4) so I can get a qualification while staying home with Alayna.
I grew up being a very unhappy, nasty, ungrateful girl (even before my depression), I was always grumpy and never enjoyed things big or small, like a pretty view or a huge holiday, I was a downer on everything (this wasn’t anything to do with how I was raised). Realising that I basically ruined and wasted my childhood made me want to change. I’ve turned myself into the complete opposite, I’m such a positive happy person now and try keep any negative behaviour away from myself and Alayna. I focus on the good, the positive vibes and things that make my soul happy, being kind to others, a lover and respecter in the hope that Alayna doesn’t follow that same path I somehow crossed. At the end of the day happiness is homemade.
I love health and fitness, I go to the gym 5 days a week which I absolutely love, there’s a childcare at the gym that Alayna attends for an hour.
When I was pregnant Charlie and I decided that we didn’t want to put Alayna in full time childcare ever. This meant I was going to be a stay at home for as long as possible, 2 years on we are still managing and have no plans on putting her in childcare any time soon.
I’ve always wanted to start a blog, but I always made excuses on why I ‘didn’t have the time’ or ‘it’s too late to start one now’ But here I am, with a 1 year old starting my blog! (Finally). In this blog, I’m going to share my advice, tips and experience with pregnancy, motherhood, relationships, fitness and lifestyle. I am going to be open and honest about parenthood, no time for sugar coating!
