Kerri Sackville is a hilarious lady, and if you're not yet acquainted with her writing, change that now!
She's the author of three books, her latest called Out There: A survival guide for dating in midlife. She's also a mum of three, and a panellist for The Parent Panel, so we picked her brain on five things she's learned, loved and even loathed about motherhood.
1. What is your favourite thing about being a mother?
My kids are just the best people, and all three are absolutely hilarious. We laugh all the time.
2. What’s your favourite thing to do with your children?
I like to just watch them interact. My kids all get along beautifully (thank god), and my favourite thing in the world is to eavesdrop on their conversations.
3. What is the thing you miss most about life pre-children?
My eldest is nearly 19. Honestly, I barely remember life pre-children. Everyone says time just flies by, but I feel like I've been parenting for 150 years.
4. What has been the biggest surprise for you about being a mother?
I have three kids and I am constantly surprised by how different they all are from each other and from me. I reckon if I had 17 kids they would all be completely different to each other.
5. What does 'me time' look like for you?
Napping. Going for long walks and listening to podcasts. Napping. Browsing around the shops. Napping. Eating lunch alone at a cafe. Napping. Also napping.
