What is your favourite way to spend time with the kids?

As long as we are all together, I don’t mind what we are doing.. We call Sunday in our house “Sunday Funday”, it’s all about just being a family and doing the things kids love the most.. Whether it be the beach, park, or heading into the Airport just to watch the planes fly over us. Just watching my girls play together is good enough for me.

Who inspires you?

Women in business! Women who run their own company, have children, run a household and do all the other crazy things we do on a daily basis are the ones that inspire me.. It’s proof that you can have it all and still achieve great things with hard work and dedication.

What’s for breakfast?

A banana and blueberry smoothie.. they are the best! And are a great way to start the day. My girls love them also

What’s your favourite thing to bake?

Baking isn’t really my thing.. I wish it was!

What is your go to remedy for a tantrum?

We’ve used the naughty corner a number of times.. Or we find taking their much loved toy from them works a treat!IMG_7118 copy
