'Our moments of magic between the madness...'

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Rachael from @dearest.sisters, who gave as an insight into motherhood and her family life. We absolutely adore Rach's instagram feed and her photos are just gorgeous! Be sure to check it out, enjoy x

Describe your family lifestyle in five words...

Homebodies are the best bodies

What is something your kids have taught you?

There is nothing stronger or more powerful than a mothers love, it's even made me appreciate the love my mother has for me a lot more.

Where's your favourite family hangout?

Our favourite hangout would have to be my bed :) we snuggle in there every morning and every night, or our backyard watching 'the birdies' with Lailah!

Where's your favourite family travel spot? 

We definitely do not travel haha Lailah pretty much has a break down after being in the car longer than 20 minutes so I can only imagine a plane trip. Maybe when she can leave to express herself without screaming and throwing every object in site haha Zaylee seems much more chilled than Lailah ever was so there's some hope there.

What's your favourite thing to do when you have time to yourself?

What is time to myself ;) I would sadly have to say scrolling back through photos and videos of the girls and admiring all their quirky features.

Give us three parenting tips...

Three tips.....never try to reason with a toddler having a tantrum, if you're trying to save money don't go on Instagram ;) and always make time to read to your little one, once they start they enjoy it much more than iPads and tv! 

What's your favourite meal to cook that your kids love?

Creamy vegetable fettuccini, I'm a vegetarian and Lailah rarely eats meat by choice! Zaylee's fave would have to be breast milk haha 

What's your tips and tricks to that perfect instagram photo?

Never expect to get the perfect photo and somehow it just happens.......that and lighting! Natural light is key. 

And finally, what's the best thing about being a mum?

That's a hard one, I would have to say it's holding them close and knowing that you'll always love one another unconditionally.
