What makes you a Mum? No matter how bad, or how good, the day has been I look at my daughter as she sleeps and know that I love her that little bit more every day. You see I am a single mother by choice, which means that getting to an advanced maternal age and being single I decided to take charge of my maternal aspirations. I found myself a sperm donor online and with the help of the fertility clinic I became a mum at 42. So I am an independent mum and proud of it!
Describe where you are right now. Sitting at the kitchen table enjoying a cuppa now that my girl has gone to sleep – ahhhh bliss for at least another 5 minutes till she wakes for another resettle! Of course the table is covered in all the things that need to be put away. I’m sure at some time in the not so distant past I had a tidy house.
Describe the last dream you remember having. I dreamt the other night that I was pregnant with twins, it was so vivid I had to feel my stomach when I woke to make sure I wasn’t heavily pregnant! Not sure if it was a funny dream or a nightmare.
Use five words to describe your family. It’s all about the hugs.
What is one thing nobody knows about you? Well I don’t know if it’s something that no-one knows, it’s certainly something people don’t believe. You see I am very much a shy introvert, it’s just I work very hard at being outgoing and an extrovert! Fake it till you make it!
What is your most treasured item? My daughter – it’s like my life started anew the day she was born. I truly started the best part of my life when I decided to have her.
When was the last time you broke a rule? Turned right when it said no turning right out of the carpark at uni, seriously there were no cars coming and I didn’t want to go all the way around the block.
What is your best piece of advice? Believe that there is always a way to follow your dreams. My daughter is proof that despite the odds and what everyone said to me my dream of being a mum came true. She is my soul baby that has come from heaven to show me how to be a better person.
When was the last time you forgot something important? I had an exam earlier today and I got to an essay question and my mind went completely blank, it was all downhill after that L Time will tell whether I passed or fail. In the meantime there is always chocolate.
What’s your #1 go-to “I’m shattered and I have to feed people” meal solution? Nachos … or maybe just takeaways (the joys of living in the city is there is always takeaways open somewhere nearby)
Five minutes ago I was resettling my daughter so she will hopefully be asleep by now. Five minutes from now I will watching some tv and attempting to conquer Mt Washmore which has taken over the chair in the living room or maybe trying to convince Miss 19months that it really is in her best interests to go to sleep cos she is very overtired!
