An open letter to my 6 year old daughter

An open letter to my 6 year old daughter - www.SophieLeBrozec.com - Love the Life You Live !

In 2012 I started a parenting blog, Franglaise Mummy, (which I’ve since retired) and in 2013 I decided to write a birthday letter to my daughters for their 1st and 7th birthdays. I continued that tradition every year, and although this doesn’t really fit with this new blog I don’t want to stop it! So […]

Stop with the Shoulds!

Stop with the shoulds - www.SophieLeBrozec.com: Love the Life You Live!

Homeschooling: why and how we are doing it

Homeschooling: why and how we are doing it - www.SophieLeBrozec.com: Love the Life You Live!

Homeschooling is such a controversial subject and until very recently one that I wasn’t particularly interested in. That is until we decided to pull 11 year old Léna out of secondary school to homeschool her. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times on social media and soooooo many people have asked me about it so […]

Live For YOU & Don’t Care What Others Think

Live for YOU and don't care what others think - www.SophieLeBrozec.com : Love the Life You Live!

How many moves, decisions, actions that you’ve taken in your life have come from trying to please others? Or fit in with “the right thing” to do? Or what Society says you “should” do? Probably a hell of a lot I’m guessing. Because it’s easier not to rock the boat. Believe me, it’s so much […]

2 month Europe Trip With Kids: Lessons Learned l www.SophieLeBrozec.com : Love the Life You Live!

Last year we had a great idea – we would spend 2 months in Europe this summer (well summer in the northern hemisphere) seeing friends and family in the UK, France and Ireland. We had 70th birthday parties to attend and new babies to meet. And it had been nearly 2 years since we left […]

5 Ways To Pick Yourself Up After A Mummy Fail

5 Ways To Pick Yourself Up After A Mummy Fail : www.SophieLeBrozec.com l Love the Life You Live!

You’ve done it again. Another Mummy Fail. Forgotten it was non-uniform day. Double-booked a play date when there is swimming. Missed the school fair preparation meeting. Got nothing in the cupboards to make a packed lunch, let alone two of them. I do not know one single mum who hasn’t experience Mummy Fail at one […]

Before becoming a mum your life was wildly different. In every which way. You don’t need me to tell you that. You KNOW it, you see it and feel it every day. You know that your body has changed since becoming a mum. Those bags under your eyes are not from too much clubbing but […]

Why You Need a Holiday Without Your Kids

Why You Need a Child-Free Holiday: www.SophieLeBrozec.com l Love the Life You Live

My eldest daughter was 2 years and 1 month old when my husband and I left her for 2 weeks to go on holiday. I nearly didn’t go. I fought my husband on the decision to go the whole way. He was the one who suggested it and said we needed it. He’s French you […]
