In our profiles many of us are mums, who juggle the jobs of raising children, managing a family, cooking, cleaning, some of us working as well, and we all try our best to squeeze in a little Craft time...sewing or making something for our own sanity and head space. With this in mind, Im excited to tell you about an Amazing site...
This site was developed by Lisa Rigby, a wonderful mother of 9 . Her passion is her family and the childhood shes creating.... On her site she wrote....
"This is a collection of my favourite mother stuff gathered from other mothers, books, lessons and 27 years of 24/7 experiences. I love the mother job. I hope something here helps you as you create a beautiful childhood..."
Her site is 1 year old this month! She has thousands of followers and subscribers!! I chose a few topics...
.......but there are soo many more. They are all fantastic and you find yourself looking at the computer nodding..
"I have a wonderful husband. We wanted a large family, and because of the example of my mother, the teachings of our church (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), and boundless energy, I felt confident we could do it. I found out it was much harder and much better than I expected.
Harder- long months of nausea, scared stiff of delivery each time, an astonishing amount of housework (I was not a worker), an a selfish, impatient nature- mine!
Better- the miracle of making a new person, the love and beauty of a baby, the laughter of a child, the frequent intensely sweet and precious moments that you don't have time to write down because you are too busy living them.
We had 4 boys first, then 4 girls and a little boy at the end.
They are our best friends, our greatest happiness, our biggest challenge and our treasure. And still an astonishing amount of work.
The oldest 4 boys have all spent 2 years doing humanitarian service in countries less fortunate than Australia, as missionaries for our church. 3 are married, and we currently have 6 children at home-2 university students,
2 teenagers and 2 primary school children.
It's like a party every day whether you want one or not."
She also asks Mothers to write a profile on their own Mothering Experiences... I was lucky enough to be able to write mine here. Her site is amazing...
