What does motherhood mean to you?
It’s an honour. The role of my life. My greatest challenge, yet the most incredible blessing.
What is your favourite memory since becoming a Mum?
I’m a stay at home mum so I’m lucky enough to experience special moments with my boys each day. The day they were born is the highlight of my life.
What does a normal day look like for you?
It starts with morning snuggles with my boys which is my favourite time of day. We have a slow breakfast together then head out to the beach, a playground or a playgroup. Two little boys start climbing the walls if we stay at home so we are always out the door by 9am! After lunch we do silent reading & quiet activities or crafts. The boys eat dinner together followed by their bath & then I read to them. Right before they fall asleep I do what we call ‘butterfly prayers’ which are a combination of affirmations & tapping. They always go straight to sleep so I get some time in the evening to do a bit of work & then read or just collapse in front of Netflix. Neither of them sleep through the night just yet!
What is something you like to do for a bit of down time?
Guided meditation, a Thai massage or a facial. Something that will calm me down because raising boys is WILD.
What is the best piece of advice you have received since becoming a Mum?
Remember that motherhood has seasons. The hard bits won’t last forever. When I feel exhausted & overwhelmed, this helps me to rise to the surface & face each new challenge with strength.
Who is your parenting role model?
I was raised by a solo mum that taught me to prioritise education, integrity & accountability. She was always affectionate & always believed in me. She dedicated her life to raising me & I will do the same for my sons.
How are you celebrating Mother's Day this year?
Each year I bake and have my Mother, stepmother & mother in law over for morning tea. The boys love to help me create something delicious to share. I’m so grateful that these very special women are in our lives.
