Mother’s Day at the Mor­ton house­hold

Life & Style Weekend - - COVER STORY -

What was your best Mother’s Day?

I'll never for­get one year when the kids were re­ally lit­tle and I was still asleep, they were so ex­cited about such an event they made break­fast all on their own. Coty would have been about five, Rafe three and JJ a baby. They brought it in on a lit­tle tray with ev­ery kind of break­fast food you can imag­ine, com­plete with wa­ter­melon cut into slices so big, I needed two hands. See­ing their joy was very beau­ti­ful, de­spite the ir­re­spon­si­ble par­ent­ing of hav­ing no idea they were do­ing it at the time.

How are you spend­ing Mother’s Day this year?

This year I will be watch­ing my boys play AFL which is heaps of fun. Then we will go out for brunch to cel­e­brate.

How does your fam­ily show they ap­pre­ci­ate you on ev­ery other reg­u­lar day?

My kids are so beau­ti­ful, I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate them. They make me feel ap­pre­ci­ated by all their cud­dles and sto­ries and opin­ions on life. As they get older they do lit­tle things that mean the world. Coty makes me a cof­fee and we spend a lot of time to­gether. Rafe loves con­ver­sa­tion, JJ makes me laugh all the time, and Tula is just so much fun. I am so, so, so lucky to have them and I feel grate­ful ev­ery day.
