About Us

Me, him, the dog and a baby was created in 2015 when John and I decided to start a family. After a tough pregnancy and birth, I wanted somewhere to write about my experiences of parenthood and our life together as a family. Me, him, the dog and a baby has evolved over the past 6 years and we now cover family, lifestyle and travel.

As a non-driving family up until recently we have loved showing families that you can go all over the place just by using public transport. It hasn’t stopped us but we are looking forward to more adventures now that we have a car.

I’m Lyndsey, the creator of Me, him, the dog and the baby. I am self-employed and work from home full time, which really helps me to be able to be there for Erin and work around our family’s needs. I love wearing dresses, especially if they’re blue and have pockets!

I have a passion for travel and exploring and I can usually be found planning or researching the family’s next trip. Now that the world is opening up again and COVID restrictions are easing, I am looking to plan trips further afield.

Lyndsey’s travel bucket list includes Cornwall, Edinburgh, Washington DC, Virginia and a train journey in Canada.

We have always been a non-driving family however, John decided to learn to drive in 2021, with his test in early 2022. It’s been exciting to learn to do something new later in life, and to have a new found freedom that comes with having a car. John enjoys reading, writing poetry, walking and playing with Erin!

John’s bucket list includes Barcelona, Egypt, Norway and Athens.

Erin (b.2016) is now in infant school and absolutely loves learning new things. She is a keen reader and has the beginnings of a small library in her bedroom. Erin is also an active child, taking part in any after school activity she can, attending Rainbows and having swimming lessons each week. Just like her Mum, Erin loves to travel and always asks when the next trip away is.

Erin’s travel bucket list includes Wales, South Africa, Egypt, Paris and Asia (she doesn’t seem to mind where).


Grandma relocated to Norfolk at the end of 2019 meaning we are now a multigenerational household. Grandma loves a good book, doing a puzzle and watching crime and medical dramas. We’re lucky that Grandma comes along on some of our holidays with us and Erin especially loves to share a bedroom with her.
