Before, Before, Now
I have had 5 children yet many people tell me I look good for having had them.
Of course, these people have only ever seen me with my clothes on so they don’t count.

wayyyyy back, when I was in my early, very very early 20’s.
Size 8 (that’s size 2 for you yanks), crop tops, and tight velvet dresses.
And I rocked them all with no bra required.

He’s working late so miracle of all miracles you have managed to get the kids to bed before 9pm and have an hour to prepare for you seduction.
Candles are lit (i bet you are all thinking, ohhhh nooo), the bed has new clean sheets (no idea why cause your just going to have to change them again), and you have had a shower, done your hair, applied a lil seduction colored lippy and a bran spanking new panties and bra set from Target (Kmart, Walmart, you get the picture).

Do you sit in your PJ’s/trackies all day every day throughout winter?

Despite the shit that goes on from day to day, are you still able to laugh and find something in your life to be grateful for?

Who Am I
I am a 42 yr old mum who has given birth to 5 wonderfully quirky kids.
My oldest 3 are from my previous 16 yr relationship and the last two are from my current relationship of 4yrs. Only my oldest and my two youngest live with us, the other 2 live with their father.
This dynamic isn’t the norm, but neither am I.
unpretty, nor am I pretty.
unique, special and very me as are each and every one of us, and I am ok with this.
I invite you into my world. It can be quirky, weird, wacky and all manner of crazy, yet at the same time it can also be boring and brain numbing.
