What are some of your favourite things to do with your kids?
I love having play dates with my friends and their kids. The babies get to hang out with their friends and I get to hang out with mine. It’s a win-win situation for all.
What are some quirks that your kids have picked up from you?
I love singing songs and nursery rhymes to my babies and I always change the lyrics to their names or what I’m trying to get them to do. My son now loves to sing and be silly and change the lyrics.
What scared you the most about becoming a mother?
To be honest, becoming my own mother (laughs). As much as I love her, growing up I kept telling myself that I’m not going to be like my mum. But at certain moments when I’m disciplining my children or telling them to do something, I find myself doing the exact same things she did.
What’s the best parenting advice you’ve ever received?
The days are long but the years are short. They grow up much quicker than you think. Cherish every single laugh, tantrum, hug, kiss, booboo and when they say they need you because that day when they’re all grown up will come sooner than you think.
And what’s the best parenting advice you can share?
Take it easy on yourself. Being a mother is the hardest and most important job in the world. Reward yourself with some wine and ice cream–you deserve it. Oh, and maternity jeans are the most comfortable invention ever, I’m still wearing mine.
