This is super exciting.
Now lets be honest, we don’t expect millions of readers or to become the next you tube vlogging sensation (i’m not sure even we know what vlogging is?) However if nothing else comes of this then it would be nice for the kids to look back 20 years from now and read a few stories, see what we did when they were tiny and how we tried to create a life that could involve staying at home and watching them grow.
We might not talk about anything of any importance, but then just the other day one of the babies wise grandmas said ‘to a little one the little things are the big things. Make sure you listen to them when they tell you about those little things, then one day they will trust you with the real big things……’ Or something to that effect. Sounded really inspirational to us anyway.
Now lets introduce ourselves. A group of friends for well over 15 years now, we have grown together, gone to college, then university, traveled the world together and then finally we have done this. Probably the hardest thing, yet by far more rewarding than anything else we have done. We had babies. Tiny humans who will rely on us for at least the next 18 years, our parents say thats laughable and its at least the next 30, but we will start with 18. Long gone are the days we’d drive around for hours laughing endlessly at just how funny we thought we were. Now there are so many car seats, prams/pushchairs/strollers and changing bags we can’t even share a car.
It was once we started Maternity leave we decided that going back to work full time was not an option, babies really do grow too quick and we didn’t want to miss out on anything, because we just can’t get enough of the snot, sick, poo explosions and other daily delights our children treat us too. That’s when Milo & Matilda was born. A small independent business, a place where the most beautiful handpicked goodies for tiny people are sold.
I guess thats it to start. All thats left to say is congratulations (to ourselves) on starting this blog.
