Prior to becoming a Mummy, I was a VIP flight attendant and used to spend my time flying around the world to exotic places. I loved my job as it enabled me to see places far and wide. I fell pregnant unexpectedly with my first born, Maya. Due to the nature of my job, it meant I could no longer fly but as soon as I gave birth I instantly knew that she was the best thing that has ever happened to me. In fact, she was the best surprise and instantly made me realise that my calling in life was to be a mother. After Maya was born, I started jetting again, until I fell pregnant with Mila (another surprise!).
Matthew and I always wanted children; I say 3, he still says 5… isn’t it crazy how men love the idea of lots of births. I wonder if they would say the same after giving birth! Joking aside, I would give birth over-and-over again. I am amazed by the human body and I love my children.
Fast forward to today, and I’m still working within aviation, but behind a computer screen. Knowing my track record, I imagine if I start flying again, it’ll probably lead to baby number 3. Before the current lockdown regulations changed our routine, Matthew and I worked, Maya attended pre-school 4 days a week and I am very grateful for Grandparents who are the greatest childcare system going. We are extremely lucky.
