Mothers on Mothering

This week…Stephanie Withers, freelance writer and contributing editor at Chalk Kids, and mother of two.

Stephanie Withers is a freelance writer and contributing editor of Chalk Kids, a lifestyle blog for style conscious families.


My little Munchkin/s is/are Finlay (2 1/2) and Parker (seven months)

No-one ever tells you that… the terrible two’s can start a year early.

I couldn’t have survived the first three months without… my Boba baby wrap, they’re a miracle for keeping babies content and give you your arms back!

I wish I’d known before that… When expecting your first, it’s best to stay off of baby forums until you’ve reached the 12 week mark. I found I was a lot more relaxed second time round when I wasn’t comparing symptoms or reading numerous scary stories online.

It used to drive me mad when people said… When pregnant with Parker and out with my toddler, Finlay – “You’re going to have your hands-full…”

The best present anyone gave me was…. My Nespresso coffee machine.

Our first holiday was… A trip to Copenhagen when Finlay was 5 months-ish, we loved it.

The most important thing that I’ve learnt is To try be patient even when I’m exhausted, being stressed in front of your kids only tends to make their behaviour worse!


I wishthat we lived closer to family.

I want my children to know that… We never stop learning. Oh and that their Dad and I love them to bits, of course!
