A Little More About Me

There is a lot more to me than baking cupcakes and then eating them afterwards. My name is Laura, I'm in my 20s, I'm a full time student studying Early Education and Childcare but I'm also a freelance writer. I have 2 children, Wee Z, my 7 year old boy (07) and Miss C, my 5 year old girl (09). We also have 3 cats. I've grown up around the world, I have more immediate family than I have fingers to count them with and I was once in a local paper for singing Old MacDonald at the age of 4 in a Spanish Karaoke bar.

I started blogging in July 2009 and after spending a few minutes deciding on the name for my new online diary, I came up with Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy. Never once would I ever refer to myself as a Yummy Mummy because I definitely do not see myself that way however having had 2 children, my tummy is not quite what it used to be and as many mums before and after me will tell you, the best word to describe a post-pregnancy tummy is flabby. I also like that it rhymes...
Blogging is a lot of fun and offers me the opportunity to have a hobby when I'm stuck in the house with the kids in bed and Husband out at work. It can be as addictive as drink but a lot healthier on the liver. The main reason I keep my blog is so that I can remember the things my children do everyday and I can't wait to read back on our adventures in years to come. 

We've been lucky to have been chosen as Toys R Us Toyologists for 2012 and Playmobil Playologists for 2013.

Wee Z's favourite thing to do is learn. He is a child with a higher learning potential or a gifted/able child. He loves Math, Science, reading and writing, Geography...anything to do with learning and he loves it. He loves his Lego too. He enjoys his swimming lessons and is a green belt in Karate. 

Miss C is a girly girl. She loves Disney Princesses, Disney films, Playmobil and anything to do with animals. She started horse riding at the beginning of the year and is fast becoming a confident rider. Horses are definitely her "thing". She loves to come shopping for clothes and shoes for herself and is a huge fan of Build-a-Bear. 

Lastly, here are 7 things (as 7 is my favourite number; I don't know why though - maybe cause it looks like an upside down L?) about me that you might like to know:

  1. I love karaoke and I have been singing since I was really young. Whether I'm good or not is left to be decided but I do enjoy having a sing-song every now and then.
  2. My favourite TV shows are America's Next Top Model, Laguna Beach and The Hills. Oh and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
  3. I'd love to live in Suburbia like the Desperate Housewives...without all the murderers and scandal of course.
  4. I love to cook and try new recipes. I just wish my lot weren't such fussy eaters!
  5. My dream car is an Audi R8 Spyder V10, it's gorgeous. Or I'd have Bumblebee from Transformers. My real life car is a BMW called Barney.
  6. I really don't like films with robots in them, except for Transformers of course, but they are cars really. Robots really freak me out.
  7. I'd love to live abroad again. I'm not sure where; convincing Husband to move might be tough, but it would be a sunny place near the beach with plenty of pastries.
