My name is Natalie and I am a working mother of two.

Writing is my passion and I use it as a method of self therapy. Gets me through the day to day turbulence of life as a working mother.

About my kids: 
I have two beautiful children. My son, Tyson, is 4. He was my first born and changed my life in a way I never thought possible. Tyson was born with some health issues and had a very rocky entry into our world. He had life saving surgery at 3 days old and from his first breath he showed us just how much of a fighter he is. He continues to inspire me on a daily basis and I'm so very proud of his amazing strength. Janelle, 2, is my precious daughter. She is a fiesty chatterbox that knows exactly what she wants and does not settle for anything less. When she was born I understood the meaning of busy mum because she does not stop for one second. From the moment her eyes open until the moment she goes to sleep she is on the move. They are both wonderful, loving, affectionate children and I feel so blessed that I was chosen to be their mummy.
Parenting is...: 
the hardest thing I have ever done. It has also brought me more joy than I ever thought possible.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
What spare time?? That is my first thought. When I do have spare time I love to write. I write as often as life allows me and from my blog to my own personal writing that I keep just for myself I write to express myself. I also love to read and I try to let my children see me read as often as possible. Time with my husband is high on my priority list. Since our kids are still very young we don't get out as often as I'm sure we'd both like but we have alot of movie nights, snuggled on the sofa with popcorn and blankets. Lastly I try and exercise for my own sanity. Sadly, the only time I really have to dedicate to this is early in the morning. I tend to start every day at 5am, on the treadmill in my basement. It might sound crazy but it's the only time the house is quiet and I try and relish those moments where it's just me and my sneakers.
When are you at your yummiest?: 
When I'm rested and not rushing around.
What's currently in your purse?: 
What isn't in my purse??? I have a wallet, lipgloss, change, my Ipod, receipts sunglasses.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
To make myself invisible
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
In the laundry one goes in there but me :)
