About Me - Text Version

Hi, I'm Becky. Married Mum of 4.

Let's go back, 

To the beginning, to one crazy mad morning mid February 2014. When I posted a Facebook status and a photo to Instagram telling my friends and followers about my hectic morning making a 'quick and easy' play dough I had found on Pinterest (more on this later)...a few friends and followers suggested I create my own blog and so here I am. 

A nursery nurse with a 12year career behind her to stay at home mum. I thought it would be easy, and after working through my eldest daughters younger years I was, and am, so grateful that we are in a position that allows me to stay at home.

But sometimes? Its crazy and stressful.

I was a great lover of these Pinterest Mums and all they had to offer, but I, and more than a few of my friends, didn't feel they were real.

Which brings me nicely to the play dough story. 'Quick and easy' the post on Pinterest told me, so I thought I could get it done before 2 toddlers and a baby realised I was gone. 'whip it up in seconds' the blogger said. 'you will be out of the kitchen before the kids know your are gone' was the promise. Elsie noticed I was gone within seconds of my hands entering the gloopy pre play dough mess, crying and screaming at the gate whilst Jenson moaned to get in the kitchen and help. And 'mess free'? both me and Elsie, along with Jenson, my kitchen and the living room carpet were COVERED in flour and red food colouring!

By joining in with Instagram play communities I had got myself  a small Instagram following by now, sharing what I was up to with 2 toddlers and a baby. We were surrounded by these Pinterest Mums, winning at life with their pristine homes, well behaved kids and all the time in the world.

And we wanted real life. So I was to build this blog that said it as it was.

A real mum.

A real blogger.

So, what now?

The Pinterest mums were amazing and I was never going to be like them.

And the 'real mum' bloggers were smashing it out of the park, I would never be one of them (not funny enough!)

And so...

3 Princesses and 1 Dude became somewhere we shared our activity ideas, our recipes, our adventures, our tips and inspiration.

And then in 2016, after dabbling on and off with YouTube for 2 years, I decided to go for it and starting uploading 3 times a week.
