So I have this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell you about this blog (and the person behind the keyboard) in as few words as possible so you actually get to the good stuff after this little intro without tuning out. Well here goes and I’ll try and keep it as succinct as possible.

Friends, family and a few foes call me Kel (Mum, Mrs H and darl also rate high up there).

Humour will feature on a regular basis as I try to look on the lighter side of love and occasionally I post something worthy of discussion or debate. I am a writer-in-the-making who is, more than likely, not going to hear back from the publisher once I’ve actually sent the manuscript (they don’t even send rejection letters anymore)! When I am forced into a 18×18 foot room filled with 30 bodies I am a teacher but please don’t ask me to answer any Science questions!  My love for my two boys (currently aged 5 and 3) will feature regularly but you’ll also find a smattering of poorly written poetry.

Free Little Words is about love in all its different forms. I don’t dwell or rant. Maudlin and I do not see eye to eye. I prefer positive and to find the silver lining in any given circumstance.

The name of my blog came to be from those three little words we all wish to hear whether it be from a parent, child, lover or partner. ‘Free’ was substituted for ‘three’ because they don’t cost anything to say and my little guy, then 2, could not say three properly-it came out as free.

I hope that you gain something from reading a post or two. Maybe you’ll have smiled, laughed or even shared your thoughts. Whatever brings you here, please take an ‘I Love You’ with you and give it to your child/ren.

Until tomorrow,

    • Why thank you. I enjoy writing it even when it cuts into my sleep time. It serves as a daily reminder to me that I love my boys despite the perils of parenting. I do hope you enjoy future posts. Thanks again, Kelly.

    • I know I will be where you are now in what seems like a flash. Everyone that I know who has children your age says mine will be getting their license before i know it. Thanks for stopping by.

      • so true. I remember when my first was born, i could not wait for him to get older – reason being that I was a new mom and struggling with all of the new mom stuff. Now he is 18, finishing high school and going away to college in the fall and i am thinking – noooooo – i want him little again:)

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by and liking my post. I’m so glad you did. I loved reading your post, “I love you to bits and pieces”. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where I love you’s just never seemed to end. And now having a 2, 4 & 5 year old I’m passing it on to them!

    • It was a pleasure to read your post. Thanks for coming over to mine too. My daily posts are my reminders of why I love them and they give me lots of material to write about too. It sounds like you had a loving home and to pass that on is the most precious gift.

  5. Aww, the reference to your son’s challenge with pronouncing “three” makes me think of my own at that age. I’ve avoided posting about my children because that’s probably all I’d ever write about :-) I could talk about those two little blessings incessantly. Maybe I’ll just post about them here and there. Love your blog!

    • The boys are my main subject matter but everything I write always relates back to love.
      I’m truly grateful that you have enjoyed what you’ve read. I hope future posts continue to be of interest to you.
