Welcome! this is Lesbemums – a same-sex family blog about life as a two-mum family.
My name is Kate and I am the main contributor to the blog. I’m 32 and live with my wife, Sharon, near Brighton in East Sussex, UK. I’m mummy/mum to T.
When I’m not looking after a four year old, I work full-time in Brighton. I’m also a geek and gamer nerd, and love all things to do with gadgets and stationery; to which my speciality is Bullet Journalling. I also enjoy walks with the dog, cooking, and photography.
Sharon is 37, works in Brighton, and is Mama to T. Sharon is definitely the “fun” parent; getting herself into all sorts of trouble with T.
Sharon also enjoys long walks, as well as cooking, watching films, new gadgets and technology, and home life.
We met in 2006 and civil partnered in 2012. Our civil partnership was then converted in 2015.
We then found out we were expecting a Beansprout in July 2014 after trying for two years. Beansprout was expected March 2015.
He then arrived in April 2015. You can call him T.
At the moment, he is your typical four year old. He loves food and being outside and enjoys sports and playing on his scooter. He loves watching films; especially Harry Potter, and having stories read to him. He starts school in September.
Our first post introduces us into the world of blogging and TTC (you can find our TTC Journey here), but over time we have written about everything from breastfeeding to weaning, babywearing to walking! As a same sex family, we have also written several posts about LGBTQ culture and issues.
