My name’s Abigail and I am the fingers behind Mummy Mummy! I live in Palmerston North, New Zealand, with my husband and our 2 kids, JJ and Tilly.
I was born in Indonesia and moved to NZ with my parents and brother just before I turned 9.
I met my current husband at 17 and fell pregnant shortly after my 18th birthday. I have never had alcohol. I have never done drugs. I have never smoked. I kept going to school, I maintained my place at the top of the class, passed my exams, and graduated high school.
In February 2013, our first son, JJ, was born. He was, and still is, a very healthy and active baby boy. Together with JJ, I went back to my old high school every year for 3 years to talk to the students there about being a mother for at such young age. My fellow young mothers friends and I debunked most stigma and stereotypes that are placed on us.
While that all sounds great, it wasn’t always easy. The biggest obstacle I had to overcome was post natal depression after the birth of JJ. My love for him came with a large guilt of not being able to give him the best of everything. That’s where crochet came in!
I found that the act of crocheting calms me down and put me in a good space. I started crocheting at 13. It stalled shortly after but I picked it up again a few years later. Today, it has become my passion and my dream is to be able to make and sell crochet for a living one day.
In the meantime, I got myself a degree in Library and Information studies. While finishing that degree, I fell pregnant with our second child. In April 2017, our daughter, Tilly, was born. She’s a healthy, tiny little doll!
After having Tilly, I realized I am not satisfied with my current degree and is currently planning to go back to university once Tilly is old enough.
That’s a little bit about me! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my blog 🙂
