About Rhyming with Wine…


Welcome to Rhyming with Wine. I’m Dawn (aka Mummy).  Keeper of The Girl (5) and The Boy (3).  We live in Yorkshire with their Dad, my lovely hubby, who is fondly known as “Daddy Pig”, as he is of course “rather an expert at everything”.

Rhyming with Wine is a family blog.  Mostly about the general silliness of life as a parent, and often bringing the giggles to you in rhyme (because why not eh?).  You might find a few sneaky feels in here too.  I’m a proud mum and so the occasional smushy moment may appear like a stealth baby-wipe when you least expect it.  

The last 12 months have been so exciting for Rhyming with Wine and have given me the opportunity to work with some brilliant brands. I have proudly become part of the BritMums co-editors team, and was selected to read one of my posts at the #BML17 Keynote speech in London.  I’m also working on a children’s book (ad)venture “Wobbles & Rhyme” with the hugely talented Gemma of Colleyswobbles.

One of my all-time blogging superheroes – Claire of Life Love and Dirty Dishes recently posted this feature which sums up my blog in her award-winning words.   For me, it’s a privilege just to know that my ramblings are out there and sharing a giggle with other parents.  Let’s face it, we all need a chortle at times to go with our luke-warm tea (that has probably been microwaved three times already).

Oh and the wine thing? Bit of a fond distant memory to be honest since the small humans arrived.  Although I can’t promise the same for my cake habit.  That’s still real.  Very very real! 

Rhyming with Wine….

Because “whine” rhymes with “wine”, in much the same way as “tantrum” rhymes with “vodka” and generally most things rhyme with “cake!”

        1. Ah thank you. They are, in my opinion, totally essential in both parenthood and in the creation of silly rhymes :0) I bet you can’t wait for your new found freedom? I have two years before I get to sample any me time, but I think my first day will be spent entirely in the bath. I shall mostly be shaving my legs whilst reading a book, talking on the phone and sleeping. Ooh and eating cake. Thanks for the inspiration. I can day dream….

  1. I just feel like I need to share the fact that I just spent a confusing few minutes thinking that your blog was a very modern and progressive combining of you and your children’s father’s new wife. I have now pulled myself out of my sleep deprived haze, had a word with myself, and concluded that YOU might be your husband’s dotty wife! I am apparently just dotty! Love your blog though, polygamous or not!

    1. Ah this made me chuckle! Definitely just one of us last time I checked, although a bit of polygamy would make for a more interesting blog….?

      You’ve got me thinking. I’ll suggest it to the hubby and see if he fancies getting another wife for the sake of blog. *Must be dotty though obvs.

      Thank you for brightening my morning. You’re not dotty. It was also very early when I put together my strap line! ;0) x
