meet the mama : nicole from little liberty

posted on: Wednesday, June 27, 2012


"Before I was pregnant a normal day meant getting up a 7.30 and getting ready for work, which I think is much easier than getting three kids ready for school! My kids are, Ruby who is 7, Millie who is 5 and Archie who is 2.

Now a normal day means getting up at 6.30, making lunches, making three different types of breakfast, cleaning up the kitchen, getting everyone dressed (rush, rush, rush) doing everyone's hair, packing bags and eventually getting myself ready.


The most 
surprising thing about motherhood is how much responsibility I now have and also how I didn’t appreciate life enough without any responsibilities! Also the unconditional love that you can have for more than one child.

Before I was pregnant I wish I'd known how good life was without being responsible for other people – I should have stayed in bed for longer in the mornings and gone to more movies during the day!


The hardest part of being a mum to three is finding enough one on one time with each child – and making each child feel really special.  


My favourite parts of motherhood are the laughter, love and the feeling that we have created our own little tribe.

Even though I didn’t always agree with the way my parents parented me I now see what they did was right, and that has been such a big help (since I’ve turned out to be such a model human being!).


The best parenting advice I've been given is: 1. One warning is always enough. 2. Stick to your guns. 3. Never threaten with a punishment that you won’t go through with. 4. Love hard, laugh hard and give as many sloppy kisses as possible!"

  1. I am always the last one to get ready too! And unfortunately I generally look like I just threw clothes and and rushed out the door!
    And I agree about not realising how care free life was before children!

  2. Oh yes, the responsibility!! I live the life of 6 people every day (especially when my husband is away, his mail, bills, bachelor pad) & 4 children plus myself, but you know what, so worth it as once they all hit school you can see as many movies as you can fit around housework that you like & have all that time back if you wish, it comes full circle.
