You're a Super Muma to?
Harry (5 Years old) and Matilda (2.5 years old)
What have your children taught you in the last few months?
That positive reinforcement works!! I have learnt, particularly for my eldest, who is super intense (that’s code for ‘naughty’), that using positive, encouraging behavioural management techniques really improves his behaviour!
AND all the songs in Frozen!!!!!!
Who inspires you?
My mummy friends. I have surrounded myself with beautiful mothers who are kind and supportive. The advice they offer is invaluable!
Prior to children you were a full time Primary School Teacher and now you are an Emergency Teacher. How do you keep a balance between your work life and life with your family?
I am in a privileged position where I can choose when I want to work; this allows me to organise my work life depending on the demands of my family.
This term I have spent a lot of time at home with the kids! I have really immersed myself into their lives, which has been really rewarding. However, the day’s I do get to get out of my jeans and go to work, I really enjoy!
What is your biggest fear?
That there’s no wine in the fridge at the end of the day!
You must learn so much from not only being a mother of two but also being a Teacher. What are the key pieces of advice you have for other Super Mumas out there?
Don’t take life too seriously! Try not to worry too much if your 2 year old isn’t speaking as well as the kid next door, or if they didn’t eat their veggies on Wednesday night, or if she doesn’t know their alphabet before they start school! All children grow and develop at their own rate.
What is your best beauty tip?
Brush your hair… at least once a week.
And also, look after what’s inside first! You can spend a fortune on beauty products and clothes but it’s more important to look after what’s under the clothes and makeup first.
Never again will I....
Fly with only one ipad!
What's in store for the rest 2015?
Harry starts school, Matilda starts kindergarten and I will increase my teaching hours.
