Hi I’m Maddi;
Wife to my hunk hub, Lloyd,
Breaky radio announcer,
And Mumma to two stunner boys.
I’m a twin (we’re not identical); I’m a qualified journalist, love the gym and am partial to a glass (read: bottle) of white wine 🍷.
Over the past 3 years Lloyd and I have been on a TV show (7’s House Rules), gotten married, had two beautiful kids, started a business, moved house, built a house and moved towns.
I’ve stayed sane by being real; Mum life is tough and as rewarding as my kids are, they’re a hell of a lotta hard work. I struggle, every day, to love being a mum.
I LOVE my kids but most days have MANY moments where I loathe being a mum. WHY? put simply, I’m exhausted.
So exhausted that my eyeballs hurt 😴.
I’d love to say my life is super exciting and extravagant but it isn’t. Most of my day consists of wiping bums, noses, and tears.
There are so many of us who have similar experiences and I’m blessed to get so many incredible messages everyday from Women all over Australia and the world. Fuck Mum guilt, let it go, it’s not helping.
Here you’ll find me telling it like it is, it’s not always glamorous but hopefully you find it refreshing 💖.
