What are the names and ages of your children?
I have Priya who is about to turn 9, Theo who is 7 and Florin, aged 3
One word to describe motherhood.
What is a recent parenting “win” you’ve had?
At the store my eldest said if I would buy her a $35 Moana Lego set she would “give me massages every day for the rest of my life”. I told her I would accept a massage a day for a year instead of for her whole life. For $35 I’ve had (surprisingly good) massage every day and she hasn’t complained once, ahahaha.
What is something you have learned since becoming a mother?
That what works, for you, for them, changes. How I parented my first, who I was while I parented her and what she and I both needed has changed. And it changes for each child.
What is a characteristic/quality that your child has that you admire?
I admire each of my children for their wildly different, but equally amusing senses of humour. There are perhaps bigger or deeper things I admire about them but this is something each day I make a little note of happiness for; that I lucked on having three funny humans. I love my eldest for being quick and sharp. She is quite satirical and at times she has a wicked streak of dark humour which is refreshing from an sweet faced little girl. I love my eldest son for being charming and flamboyant and never afraid to make a good joke at his own expense. And our smallest for being able to make quite pointed jokes at the ripe old age of three.
