Hi my name is Clemmie AKA Peckham Mamma I have two small boys and live them and my husband in Peckham, South East London.
I am a creative and copy writer at Grey London working on brands including Mcvities, Kidzania and The Times.
My real passion is Motherhood. I knew having kids would shake things up a bit. I hadn’t anticipated that it would change EVERYTHING. Life alteratering and life affirming. Mundane chats about nappies and naps don’t float my boat. Home-birth, in fact any type of birth, the power of The Sisterhood and generally how excellent women are? I’m into all of that stuff.
Mother of all Lists begun as a way of saving my sanity during my second maternity leave. It’s progressed into an attempt to try and give an honest account of my experience of Motherhood.
Forget ‘putting on a brave face’ or sizing-up other Mum’s at the playground. Looking after small people is chaotic, frustrating, exhausting and relentless. To survive is for us parents need to stick together and laugh at the madness.
Less beating ourselves up, more seeing the pure comedy in every disaster. After all, we are all doing the best job we can, so why not be real with one another and have a giggle along the way?
