Of course we wanted to hear just how Carolyn does it! Not just off exploring or smart travels, but about being a mother, looking after the girls and the boy in her life…as well as life as an independent woman (sorry to go all Girl Power on you there!) So Carolyn is going to blog about her & her clan…so sit back, grab a wine/coffee (depending on what time zone you are in!) and enjoy Carolyn’s first instalment.
“I live with my husband Craig and our all-pink family of girls in Canberra, Australia. My oldest daughter Rachel is 21 years old, our next daughter Grace is 5 years old and our last pink daughter Tilly is 2 years old. A lot of parenting has been done over the last 2 decades, with at least another 2 decades of parenting/nurturing to go… I am a school teacher and am enjoying a year off to spend time with our girls before returning to part-time teaching next year. Most of my family live here in the same town as me and its great for my girls to have such close relationships with their extended family. My sister and I have something hugely in common besides blood/DNA – we are both married to 2 brothers. So we share the same in-laws, the same nieces/nephews and my sister is not only my sister, she is also my sister-in-law. We argue over who has got the better brother – I do, of course – and we love sharing the same mother/father-in-law. As all our children have very similar DNA, they look very similar, more like siblings than cousins. Family gatherings are a blast!
A humongous thanks to Carolyn and we look forward to hearing from her again soon!
