Motherhood is like nothing you can ever explain or feel until you are there. All those quotes and cliche’s that you’ve ever read and heard become totally true. It is absolutely like wearing your heart on the outside of your body, forever vulnerable and exposed.

We are only 6 years into our motherhood journeys and we already feel like it is and will be the biggest achievement of our lives. We are in charge of nurturing and moulding beautiful little personalities into good, decent people.

Our children fill our heart with so much joy and happiness, and simultaneously can sap every ounce of patience and energy in mere minutes! They can drive us to absolute despair, and then all is forgotten when we kiss those chubby cheeks while they are sleeping..

We welcome you into our motherhood moments – the good, the bad, the ugly and the inevitably insane!
