We live in Whitianga in the Coromandel- we moved her after visiting whenever we could and wanted a better place than the city to raise our children. Mum ( Me ) Dad, 9 year old Jax, 4 year old Logan & our littlest love Tehya ( 9 months )
Plus our cat Turbo who thinks he is a dog !
What is a typical day like in your house?
Up and out the door by 8am - ready for school work & early childhood education ( I am a lead teacher in an infant and toddler room !) Back home for the dinner bed bath routine - we live for weekends when its more relaxed
What's your best childhood memory?
Making huts in our forest backyard !
What was the first year of motherhood like for you?
It was amazing! I went back to work after 12 weeks so that broke my heart but my eldest was a dream baby and we navigated the first year so well. Third baby in and we got a shock - she is an absolute delight but our hardest baby so far
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given to arm you as you navigate motherhood or that you can pass on?
Everyone will offer advice but take what applies to you if you want 😉 that and the cleaning will be faithful and wait forever but the moment will pass if you let it.
What’s one thing as a mum you cannot live without?
Coffee of course 😅
What was the hardest thing about becoming a mum?
Giving up 'me' and my lifestyle prior - I wouldn't change a thing though I feel like I was destined to be a mum
How do you take time out for yourself without children?
I usually snuggle up with a coffee and a book and have a moment of peace
If you are a working mum how do you ensure you balance this?
To be 100% honest I don't- the hustle of work and mum life is a hard act to juggle but at the end if the day- we are warm, fed, are content and have a roof over our head so we can't complain!
What is it you wanted to portray in your Instagram feed? Or wanted to share with others?
It's more for me than anyone else - a curated feed of beautiful photos to document my children and focus on the beauty in our life.
