I’m Claire Rocks
(yes, that is my actual name, i am not trying to say i rock!),
I am a 30-something Mummy to 5 boys…yes thats right….
My boys are Cameron (15), Harvey (13), McKenzie (7), Caelan (6) and Cohen (3)
Harvey, McKenzie and Caelan have additional needs (I’ll talk about that later)
I am married to Matthew who is my best friend, we are inseparable. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him.
Matthew and I live and work together. We have a childminding business and work from home.
So, as you can see i’m pretty outnumbered!
I bet you’re thinking ‘How has this woman not gone insane from being around kids and (mini) men for 99% of her days?’
The answer is, honestly I REALLY don’t know!
Life is busy, full of fun and it can get pretty hectic
I am a….
- BOY MUM
- SPECIAL NEEDS MUM

We were even in the Daily Mail as an Outnumbered family.

I have started THIS MUMMY ROCKS as a way to connect, help and support other mums. Offering hints and tips on how to deal with competing demands of different age children, children with different needs, gaining a family and work life balance. As well as general parenting, parenting boys, parenting children with additional needs, self care for mums, cool gadgets and toy reviews, trends and fashion and more…Using my knowledge, experience and my person stories to inspire and help other mums feel like they can relate and seek comfort, knowing that they aren’t alone and that their is a solution in every situation…you just haven’t found it yet!
Using my knowledge, experience and my person stories to inspire and help other mums feel like they can relate and seek comfort, knowing that they aren’t alone.
And please believe me when I say I have a wealth of knowledge and experience. In my past I have over come eating disorders, depression, been a victim of domestic violence, been a single mum, unemployed mum, working mum, lost my mum when I was 24 and much more.
But despite all of this, I have used my experiences to become a better person and improve myself, giving me a different approach on life and the way I raise my family. I basically changed the negatives into positives. Found my self worth and confidence amongst it all.
The goal is to support mums and offer recommendations and inspiration to help you focus on creating a strong, positive relationship with your children and get you through the day when things aren’t so easy.
