Welcome to Kiwi Mama of 3
A blog written by a New Zealand Mum living in France. I tell it how I see it; the good, the bad & the downright ugly!
Some days I get it right…others…well, I yell a lot! There are a million ways to mum, we’re all doing our best.
I love yoga, running, blogging and reading while dabbling in French vintage furniture DIY, 40+ Mum Style and managing 3 kids.
I always wanted kids and I am totally thankful for them but I have days where I wonder what has happened to me and days where I realise there is no angry way to say ‘stop farting!’ – so I have to laugh!
I’ve just turned 40 and so I am facing the battle of the middle-age-spread. I work hard to keep it away but I love my food and wine and I have bad days and worse days and then really great days too.
I’ll try to motivate you, make you laugh & maybe make you think! I’ll share my kids and overshare my life in France.
I hope it’s funny sometimes and I hope you say to yourself ‘This could be me’.
Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.
I am a double Olympian with almost 150 international test caps in field hockey for New Zealand. Currently, I live in France with my husband and 3 kids; we have lived in 4 different countries in 5 years!
I’ve ridden a bull (yes, you read that correctly) raced a Formula Challenge race car and skydived over Fiji (magnificent!).
I am an author, blogger and memory maker!
