When you have kids, they begin to take up your whole world. And sometimes you, the parent, neglect your own self care a little bit. Rhian Allen is the founder of The Healthy Mummy, and she started the program to help mums shape up and get healthy after having a baby. We ask her a little more about her own life as a mum!
1. What is your favourite thing about being a mother?
I love having two gorgeous boys to share my life with. I love watching them grow up and I love spending my time with them and having cuddles and fun with them
2. What’s your favourite thing to do with your children?
I love going to new places and experiencing new things. I also love just chilling out at home with them and playing games.
3. What is the thing you miss most about life pre-children?
Sleep! 100% sleep!
4. What has been the biggest surprise for you about being a mother?
That your priorities change completely. Everything in my life is geared around my boys and making them the priority. They are all that matters to me.
5. What does 'me time' look like for you?
Having quiet time with no one demanding things from me and reading a book!
