Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?

Hmmm…hard to say. We live in a more rural part of the small city Duncan, BC. We have a small farm but we are very close to schools, work, the hospital and restaurants.

Tell us about your children

I have 5 children ranging in ages from 18 years to 7 years old. My eldest just graduated high school!

Tell us about your typical weekday

It’s chaos from start to finish! With 5 kids we’re already really busy but I’m also a midwife and my husband and I have a company that creates and distributes organic products for pregnancy and babies www.matraea.com. Typically on a Monday morning, the Matraea team meets at my house for a couple of hours then we get to work in the warehouse/office. I have to be really flexible with my schedule because most babies don’t schedule their arrival times – they come when they’re ready!

Do you have help?

My parents live in a house on the property which is really helpful and the older kids pitch in to help with the younger kids.

Who cooks dinner?

My dear husband.

How often do you buy something for just you?

Not often at all – I do not have time to shop!

Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?

Yes, I have to. It’s so important to stay strong and healthy, especially when you have a million things going on!

What clothing lines or stores do you like to buy for your children?

They get a lot of hand-me-downs.

I’m totally obsessed with…

Growing our product line.

Three things in my purse right now …

iPhone, keys and a million hair ties!

My favorite drugstore buy…

I don’t know if I have one – I rarely shop.

My guilty pleasure is….

Ohhh….chocolate and Netflix!
