How did becoming a mother change you?
I was 17 years when pregnant and 18 years when I become a mother, did I really know myself at age 18 nope I was still finding myself. So for me I didn’t change, I grew into this strong, determined, inspiring person I never imagined before.
What’s the best part about being a mother?
Absolutely everything – seriously.
Naming your children is always so difficult (or maybe it was just me!) Was it easy to pick your child’s name and why did choose it?
Totally agree its so difficult especially as have 3 boys. To be honest the credit goes to Dan, he choose all the boys names.
Has your personal style changed since becoming mother? If so how?
Before kiddies I always wore dresses now shorts, singlets and converse shoes.
Is there anything about motherhood that has surprised you?
Everything – the love you share, the challenges you face. How is it even possible for my heart to skip a beat every time I look at my boys.
