However you stumbled here, hello. We won’t bore you with an essay on our lives so far and events leading up to getting to write a blog, because that’s not interesting. Instead, we’ll pick out a few facts about us and the most important bits you should know before trawling through the rest of the site.
- We are Amy and Wes. We’re presently engaged and welcoming our first baby, a boy, in July 2015 and we’re getting married in November 2015. You can find out a lot more about us individually here, but we both contribute to this blog as a joint venture so you can get the views of us both as we carry on our journey through parenthood and soon-to-be married life.
- We have a cat. His name is Rufio, though Wes once saw a gigantic cat on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition called Peanut, so now he’s sometimes called that too. He’s a menace, but he is the cutest menace you’re ever likely to see.
- The blog is called Mum’s the Law as a reference to the fact that when not blogging about day to day goings on, Amy’s real job is that of a solicitor. That and the fact that we all know that when the little one arrives, it’ll be her calling the shots and Wes (the Sheriff) will just have to go with it!
- We found out we were expecting when Amy was admitted into A&E with appendicitis. It wasn’t the nicest start to finding out you’re going to be parents for the first time, but the little bugger survived the ordeal and for all intents and purposes everyone will come out of the other side jusssst fine.
- We both absolutely loathe football and everything about it. However, we have another man in our lives that may be swayed into it and we are a bit unsure as to how we might deal with that later. Especially if Amy’s mum goes through with her threat and buys him a tiny human’s Burnley kit.
- Amy cannot abide the sound of someone whistling. Anyone. The longer and more tuneful the worse it is. This causes me issues, because it’s her boss’ favourite hobby and Wes’ mindless habit.
- Wes researches pretty much everything we buy. The more expensive the purchase, the more research goes into it. Hours and hours of researching prices, reviews, alternatives… it’s a painstaking process that can drive Mum mad, but it’s worth it and we would definitely recommend it.
- Both of us are huge video game fans. We were, until recently, active players on World of Warcraft (yes, that one you’ve heard all the horror stories about) and still make time to play together on a bunch of different consoles and platforms. And yes, we will be encouraging our kids to do the same.
