Meet Lucy Kippist: Writing queen, hilarious reporter and mama extraordinaire

Kinderling News & Features

We've been getting to know a few parents recently that are part of our Kinderling fam. So we couldn't forget our very own parenting editor, Lucy Kippist! With over 10 years' experience working in the parenting realm (and four years as a mama herself), she's got her finger on the parent pulse.

1. What is your favourite thing about being a mother/ father?

The love. It’s opened my heart more than I ever thought possible.

2. What’s your favourite thing to do with your children?

Being outside with them, whether it’s the park or the backyard or the beach and watching them run around on the grass, laughing together. It’s the best.

3. What is the thing you miss most about life pre-children?

I am obsessed with thinking about how much time I used to have. Did I waste it? What was I doing when I thought I was busy? And also, being able to do something just because I want to do it (without thinking, or packing anything!)

4. What has been the biggest surprise for you about being a mother/ father?

Getting to the end of a long, exhausting day together and then sitting on the couch once they’re asleep looking at photos I’ve taken of them. It’s completely absorbing.

5. What does 'me time' look like for you?

Exercise, having a bath and reading my Kindle (Kindles are god’s gift to parents who love to read because you lay next to them and do it without needing a light!).
