About Me

Hello! I'm The Ish Mother, otherwise known as Rebecca/Bec. I live in West Yorkshire with my husband and two small children, Girl Child (6) and Toddler (2). You may notice they have different aliases according to their age at the time of writing!

This blog is my opportunity to talk about raising my two small people, and parenting in general. I aspire to be a gentle parent, try to be as eco-friendly as possible and resist gender stereotypes as much as I can. I'm not perfect at any of these things by a long shot, but I try my best.

I'm also a huge bookworm, and especially love children's books, so I regularly wax lyrical about the current favourite book that has tickled our fancy!

You can find me on Twitter under the handle @IshMotherBec for scintillating talk about how tired I am. Or look me up on Facebook for more of the same.
