To celebrate all that is being a mum is, for this Mother's Day, we sat down with two amazing mums that help run this show, Sophie & Jaz, wives to the directors of Blackboard Coffee to understand the best parts of being a mum and what advice they would give to upcoming mums.
Being a mum is a 24/7 job. What’s something that you do to hit the refresh button?
JAZMIN: Something that always manages to fill my cup up is going to grabbing a coffee with a friend, going for a walk or doing something as a family out in nature like an arvo by the beach.
SOPHIE: Making sure I wake up before the girls and have a coffee in peace that’s still hot!!! Getting outside in the fresh air, either with a friend or just chuck the kids in the pram pop in headphones and GO!
The most rewarding experience you have had since becoming a mum?
JAZMIN: The most rewarding thing for me is to the see the personalities of my little one develop and see that the things they place value in are little qualities you have taught them.
SOPHIE: I think when my children show kindness of any kind that is not forced. Like someone I know messaged me saying that they saw poppy at daycare and she was so sweet and gentle and welcoming to her daughter who was new there. But it’s not even like I was there to be policing it haha.
Or when the girls don’t know I’m watching and they play nicely together and share! (So that ones rare...)
What life lesson have you learn from the women that came before you?
JAZMIN: One of the lessons I have learnt from my mum is to live life generously. She is the most generous woman I know with her time and her love.
SOPHIE: My mum was and is such an incredible mother (and now grandmother). I loved that throughout our upbringing she was there for soooo many little moments. An assembly when we got an award, a running race. She probably had a thousand other things that she would’ve rather have been doing or that were more important but it meant soooo much to me at the time. I hope I can show my kids the little things in their life truly matter to me!
