About me

Hi, I’m Cigdem (Che-dem), a full time working first time mum to a wonderful little boy. After becoming a mum in Jul 2017 I became quite frustrated with the view of perfect parenting all around me, all the comments, unwanted advice, and online literature from sites like Bounty and The Bump making me feel inadequate in someway. The expectancy of hitting certain mile stones and activities to do with my child etc. become very overwhelming, and I wanted something real and relatable, so “a mum life” was born; somewhere real parents can come for a sanity check, and real life experience. This is also for the rebel parent who doesn’t follow the herd on certain topics and want to read about alternative, and perhaps even controversial views.

I also love cooking so I will share some of my favourite vegan recipe’s with you!
