Mummy and Me – Zig Zag love

When I saw Sienna Miller on a recent cover of Grazia leaving The Tonight Show in NYC – I developed one serious girl crush. How can someone look like that AND be a mother of a young child??? It’s just not fair! At that stage in my twins’ lives I was covered in their phlegm or bits of food and ALL my jeans had holes in the knees – and not in a fashionable way – in an ‘I’m-down-on-the-floor-with-my-kids-whether-I-like-it-or-not’ way.

Daddy and Me

Now when I’ve been on my holidays – I often see dad’s wearing matching trunks to their sons. Now maybe that’s a coincidence or maybe I need to change the destination. I am not a big fan of matchy matchy.
