Sleep, elusive sleep

From the last weeks of our first pregnancy, the sleep deficit begins. And so to, a taste of things to come.

For me, that was over seven years ago. And as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I haven’t had a full eight hours since.

Self inflicted admittedly. I’m not pregnant, don’t have a newborn and my kids sleep like angels.

But oh! That precious golden time once the kids are in bed. The day is done, the jobs are finished (at least for now) and the house is quiet.

ME TIME!!! Yippee

Why would I want to give that up to go to bed?

But how well is the lack of Zzzzzz’s serving me?

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about sleep, how a lack of sleep affects our mothering, and what we can do about it.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be discovering how to set the burning desire in your belly ablaze.

As a busy mum with competing demands and limited time you often feel torn and pulled in different directions. You pour out so much of yourself, your emotions, your energy into your family. It can feel like you’re carrying so much, but at the same time being ‘unproductive’ in the world’s eyes, despite wanting to make your mark.

But we’re going to give you another perspective.

My guest today is SuperMum Kate Greenstock

Kate, her husband, and their three children, who are 13, 11 and 7, live near Richmond Park in Greater London where she loves to breathe, cycle and deer stalk. Transitioning from a calling-the-shots career woman, to being a mother with no rule book to follow, proved to be more of a challenge than Kate expected.

But she found a solution, and along with it, her calling to help other mothers who were also feeling lost in motherhood.

At Wild Rubies, Kate helps mums to feel like they’re truly living, rather than just existing; re-discovering themselves and re-imagining their work lives in the process​.

If you’re tired of being seen as just a worker or just a mother, Kate will help you find a way forward. Then you get to be seen by the world full and whole, and in creative technicolour.

Kate gives you permission to ​take the space to breathe ​and​​ ​find the clarity ​needed ​to set your eyes on what’s ahead for you.

I’m so excited to welcome Kate to my show because she will teach you to be more like your children – incomplete, imperfect, curious, daring, outrageous and completely loved – and in doing so, fuel that fire in your belly.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about how to discover, understand and use your true strengths. As women we’re often quick to identify our weaknesses, but are much more reserved when it comes to seeking out our strengths. The thing is, if we can play to our strengths and see them as our superpowers, we can use them to our advantage.

My guest today is SuperMum Nikki Smith

Nikki is a Psychologist and Career Coach, and the mum of two daughters who are 7 and 4. She’s a keen surfer loves to catch the waves at the beach near her home in Barwon Heads in Australia.

In her work, Nikki focuses on helping her clients get to know their true strengths and encourages them to leverage those strengths to transform their work life into something that they’re passionate about.

In todays show, Nikki teaches us that your true strengths are activities that energise you, and that you find ease with. The great thing about understanding your strengths, is that you can employ them in all areas areas of your life, including your role as mum.

When you discover your strengths, you gain clarity, confidence and momentum in your life; and when you play to them, you double your productivity, resilience and creativity.

I’m really excited to talk to Nikki today because she will help you understand your strengths and in doing so, discover the best possible you.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about abundance. Often in life, we’re bombarded with messages of scarcity, so much so, you might start to feel the optimism, hope and belief in yourself starting to drain away. But don’t despair, because it is possible to make a shift to the abundance mindset where you stay positive, keep smiling, and have your eyes wide open to all the possibilities, freedom and choice you deserve.

My guest today is SuperMum Julie Ann Cairns

Julie, a former economist for the Reserve Bank of Australia lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and 12 year old daughter. She’s been working in the finance and wealth-creation industry for over 25 years and has taught more than 10,000 people how to create wealth and trade the international financial markets.

Her financial knowledge, alongside her own personal story of both making, and loosing fortunes, lead her to write, produce and direct her own documentary film called The Abundance Code which we’ll be talking about today.

The Abundance Code brings together over a dozen experts to bring you practical tips and inspiration to stay out of scarcity and keep moving into abundance. To connect and create. To collaborate instead of competing. To find purpose and meaning in your life instead of feeling lost, confused and alone.

I’m so happy to welcome Julie to the show today because she will inspire you to transform yourself and your life, and empower you to live an abundant life free from limiting beliefs.

My son hurling a mini quiche at the String Quartet last weekend was not my proudest mummy moment.

Now I know small boys and String Quartets are not good bed fellows, but then it’s not every day your mother-in-law turns 80.

Some things you just don’t want to miss out on.

But does that incident (and the cringe-worthy list of others that preceded it) make me a bad mother (even though it felt like it at the time)?

Heck, no!

I’m real. I’m normal. I’m learning. And I’ll try harder next time.

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about what you should be telling yourself when your children are not behaving at their best.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about the value of planning when you have kids. Now I know organising your everyday life – creating routines, setting up systems, sorting your cupboards – may seem time-consuming and dull, but stay with me on this one, because seriously, it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

My guest today is SuperMum Nicole Avery

Nicole lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and five gorgeous kids ranging from 7 to 17 years old. She more than most knows the importance of organising the chaos of family life, and by pulling together her business know-how, hands of experience as the mum of five, and the things she’s learned from other families to bring us ‘Planning with Kids’. She’s written a book by the same, is a sought-after speaker, and has created a blog, a podcast, a menu planner app, an e-course called ‘Planning and Present’.

Today Nicole will teach us why careful planning acts as a safety blanket in our life as a busy mum. Mess and disorganisation brings and extra layer of stress to our lives and so planning for the known components of family life means you are better able to cope with the whole host of unknowns that family life constantly throws up at you.

Nicole leads by example because although she has a tribe of kids and a busy family life, as well as running a business, she still finds time to run marathons and carves out relaxed and fun time with her children.

I’m really grateful that Nicole has agreed to talk to us today because she will share with us the simple way to plan ahead, get organised and find your me time.

They say old habits die hard.

They’re right.

They do.

But does that mean to say you’re gonna let bad habits get the better of you?

You’re kidding! A strong-minded mama like you?

No way.

In fact, knowing that replacing bad old habits with shiny fresh new ones will take time and effort, is the essential first mindset tool you need to kill those destructive old habits dead.

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about our shared addiction to Jaffa Cakes, and how to kill those naughty bad habits dead.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be finding out how to put your child’s well-being first in a competitive world. By doing so, you’ll get permission to take your foot off the gas and reclaim a more relaxed family life.

My guest today is SuperMum, Tanith Carey.

Tanith is an award-winning journalist and writes for many of the major UK broadsheets. She’s a best-selling parenting author of seven books, and has appeared on the major UK morning shows as a parenting expert. Tanith and her husband live in London with their two daughters who are 11 and 14.

Today we’ll be taking to Tanith about her critically-acclaimed book called ‘Taming the Tiger Parent: How to Put Your Child’s Well-Being First in a Competitive World’.

From the moment the umbilical cord is cut, today’s parents often feel trapped in a never-ending race to ensure their child is the brightest and the best. Mozart in the womb, Baby Einstein DVDs for newborns, and learning apps for toddlers is just the beginning. And while it’s completely natural for us to want our kids to reach their potential, at what point does too much competition become damaging not only to our children, but to us as mums?

In this episode, we’ll explore the effects that competitive parenting has on us as women, how the extra work load of out-of-school activities is affecting us, and the impact it’s having on our relationships with our partner, our children and our family life.

Tanith will help us examine more closely the choices we make for our children’s free time, and look at it from a bigger picture perspective. She helps us question whether, in trying to do the absolute best by our children, we might actually be creating unnecessary problems for ourselves and them.

I’m overjoyed to have Tanith with me on the podcast today, because she can teach us so much about how to tame our inner tiger parent which will free up more time for the things that really matter.

My daughter Elizabeth is learning to talk.

She’s two and a half, so the vast world of words lays wide open before her.

I listen to her every day. Desperately trying to communicate, repeating herself again and again in the (often) forlorn attempt to be understood.

But does she ever give up, throw her hands in the air and declare that it’s all too hard?

Of course not. She just keeps on trying. That’s because, like all toddlers, she has a growth mindset.

She’s open to new possibilities, she won’t give up and she’s never afraid to fail.

We can learn so much from our little ones because it’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.

Elizabeth wants to talk. And talk she will.

What do you want to do?

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about the incredible power of believing you can improve.
