Dear bear and beany…

Welcome to dear bear and beany, my little blog about my life as a mummy to two girls. Taking you with us on our adventures and sharing with you the ups and downs that comes with the best job in the world. It’s my place to write down all the rambling thoughts in my head and record all our memories in one place.




I’m Laura… the writer behind dear bear and beany. Ever since I could hold a pencil, I have loved to write. As a child I was always the one that took the longest to finish writing their story in class, often missing out on playtime to get it finished. I always knew I wanted to be a wife and a mummy and it really is the best thing I have done, and the hardest. A bit about me…I love sunflowers, coffee and white chocolate is the best thing ever!.




Andy and I first met fourteen years ago, it was definitely lust at first sight for him…I took a bit longer and we got together seven years ago and got married six years ago. He works hard for our family and there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for us girls. He was the one that gave me the final nudge to start writing my blog and I am thankful for how supportive he is.

He loves to watch football and cricket. Tries to play golf (he will never read this) and has a memory full of useless information, but handy for a pub quiz!

My beautiful Alice…



Alice couldn’t wait to make me a mummy and arrived ten days early in August 2012. Alice is a gently sole, but bursting with confidence in a quiet way. She loves to talk and comes out with some funny one liners. She is now at school and I couldn’t be more proud of her.

My Gorgeous Holly…



Two years and ten days later, my little Holly arrived right on time…maybe a sign she will take after her mummy, always on time! Holly is my smiley little girl, I can’t remember a time when Holly didn’t smile. Holly’s character is shining through, at times just sitting back taking the world in and other times charging around letting everyone know she is here. She loves to read, play with her babies, pushing them around the house and into my doors and walls!! She is such a funny little girl and I can’t get enough of her.

Well, that is us! Thank you for stopping by and if you would like to get in contact please drop me an email at Laura@dearbearandbeany.com
