Hi, I’m Charlotte, I live in Bristol with my partner Ben, our 2 year old girl, Pip, and our Miniature Schnauzer, Stanley.

Thanks for visiting Doing The Mum Thing. I’m Charlotte, a full time mum, juggling the responsibilities of parenting, making stuff, pretending to do housework, trying to calm a crazy dog and writing this blog.

Throughout my blog you will find ideas for keeping your kids busy and helping to support their learning, at home and outdoors. My activities are inspired by my teaching background, my passion for creative activities and my love of children’s books.

I also share some thoughts and experiences from my parenting journey.
