About Us

Emily by habour

My Petit Canard is an award nominated family and lifestyle blog inspired by the experience of being a mum. Its my space for capturing and sharing the everyday and adventures of our little family. I started this blog when I was on maternity leave with our daughter, and here I am five years down the line with two little ones and a whole lot of lessons behind me.

What have I learnt along the way, well that it does get easier but it’s never any less demanding or exhausting. But for every tantrum, every cry and every sleepless night there is a moment that makes you smile or melt your heart, and for everything else there’s always a half cold cup of tea!

You’ll find my thoughts and feelings on here about being a parent and a working mum sprinkled in with our adventures and lots of the every day. What started as a place to record my thoughts in the middle of the night during a lonely night feed has become an extension of me that I love to pour my heart and soul into so I hope you stop and stay a while.
