I have not done a Mother Heart feature for a while and thought that I would share with you a lovely local Brisbane blogger that I have connected with through my blog. Of course I love the fact that she also has super cute twins so let me introduce you to Natasha:
My name is Natasha, I want to become a Registered Midwife so I’m going to University for the first time in my life next year (scary). I started playing roller derby 6 months ago to help me battle my Postnatal Depression and I can now say that it worked. Now I’m now in love with the sport and the great women I play with, it really gives me a sense of belonging. I am an avid reader, love photography, I was a Beauty Therapist before children and we love to travel.
I have been with my husband now since I was 13, we were deeply in love then just as we’re deeply in love now. My Italian mother in law did not like me until we got engaged (I was 23 and Dion 25) and I couldn’t understand it. It wasn’t until I had children of my own that I understood the unique bond between a parent and a child. Now we’re best friends and we only live 50 meters away from them. I have identical twin girls that will be 2 in November, they look like me and when their cranky Dion says they act like me too! I’m a stay at home mum which I love, it’s not always easy but I wouldn’t change a thing, ok maybe the PND I would like to change.
I grew up around domestic violence, so one of my life goals was to be with someone who is kind, funny, respectful to others, kind to children and good looking (hee hee), because I knew I wanted a better life for my children and myself. I’m lucky I did find that, but unfortunately I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop, if that makes sense (but I’m working on that!). Being a mother now, it really makes me reflect on my own childhood and it makes me aware about my own parenting style. It has made me aware that it’s my choice how to parent my children and that’s been really empowering for me. My girls call me mummy now and it really makes my heart burst, I love seeing the new things the do.
My goals for my children..hmmm..a doctor and a lawyer :) No, really I just want them to be happy. I want them to be kind, confident, strong, happy adults that put their hand up to help others in need and I want them to find kind, nurturing partners to share their life with.
BLOG: I started my blog to connect to others and to share my stories. I write about my girls, my PND, roller derby, posting photos and mainly life in general.
