Wry Mummy

Hi, I’m Jess. I have three boys aged eight and below and they don’t yet appreciate the niceties of my wit. I hope you do. Wry Mummy is a humorous blog about the experience of mummydom. Feel free to learn from my mistakes!

So much of parenting can only be greeted with one response: a wry smile. The cereal bowl all over the floor again? An emergency yell from a distant child just as you finally sit down for a wee? You can’t exactly raise a laugh, but it’s not worth a weep – hence Wry Mummy.

I blog about being a woman with children: a woman who loves style, interiors, laughing, her husband, laughing at her husband, and chocolate. Oh, and her kids. Above all.

If you feel my blog is a good fit for your brand, you can contact me here.
