Why do you love being a mum?
It took my husband and I 10 years of IVF to get our son
He is the most spirited redheaded ratbag that you would ever meet but brings us unbelievable amounts of joy every day
The over welcoming unconditional love that you feel is the most amazing emotion that I have had and continue to feel
My son has just turned 5 so now at that age that we can do a lot more together and its hilarious when he says things and you don’t expect
What’s the hardest part about being a mum?
Working Full time and juggling parenthood and work
Also, at this age we are still learning, and some situations can be frustrating and stressful when you aren’t expecting it but we try to take things in our stride and learn
What is one of your fondest memories of motherhood?
Everyday is amazing whether it be easy or hard
I couldn’t imagine my life without Byron
We love going camping to the beach and we especially love time away with no distractions to do the simple things and we have undivided family time
What’s the craziest/funniest thing your child has done?
Byron is a Denis the Menace so is constantly doing unexpected things
He is very confident in his own skin and completely unnerved by doing what ever he wants which can sometimes be good – or embarrassing
How has coffee helped you during motherhood?
Coffee is one of the first things I think about when I open my eyes in the morning
I can drink coffee at any time of the day and after 12 years of Merlo it’s almost as necessary as drinking water
It also helped a lot in the earlier years when Byron wouldn’t sleep
