About Dawn White

Dawn is the often bewildered mum of two very busy children. The Girl is 4 and The Boy is 2. She lives in Yorkshire with her hubby who is fondly known as “Daddy Pig”, as he is of course “rather an expert at everything”. She writes, mostly in rhyme, about the general silliness & hilarity of family life, with the odd soppy moment thrown in just for the feels. Her blog is Rhyming with Wine: "Because whine rhymes with wine, in much the same way as tantrum rhymes with vodka and generally most things rhyme with cake!" Find her on twitter & Instagram @rhymingwithwine.
