Best part about being a mother: The laughs. Because if you didn't laugh you would cry!
Favourite parenting advice you received: From my Grandma. Structure. Kids love routine.
What you didn't see coming: Number 3 ….. our daughter.
Family life: Should be fun.
Getting that balance between work and motherhood: Don't sweat the small stuff. You can't do everything. If you house is a mess after a long day at work. Let it stay a mess! There will always be tomorrow. Pour a wine instead.
Values you want to instil in your children: To be kind. Kindness is the key to everything.
Your Ideal Sunday: Sleep in (well let's face it that is 7am!) Brunch. Shopping. Dinner with family and friends.
Your own mum: I have been raised by 2 strong women my mother and my grandmother. They have taught me to laugh at myself, how to sneak shopping past your husband and how to make a good cup of tea.
Mother's day wish list: I had better say spending it with my family because I'm going on a kid free holiday to Melbourne in 6 weeks! Woohoo!
