Conversations on Motherhood with Marie, our E-com Logistic & Customer Supply Manager and mom to Doris and Dylan.
What does motherhood mean to you?
For me, motherhood is a never-ending rollercoaster ride with the most exciting mix of joy, feelings, love, challenges, and fun adventures!
Your best health advice for moms?
All the sleepless night has made me understand how important it is to fuel my body with good stuff that gives me long-lasting energy. For me, running has helped me to clear my head and fill my body with strength that helps me to be a better mom.
What is your favorite go-to recipe for busy days?
We have two favorites in our family; green smoothies that work for both moms and kids!
With only three ingredients, easy to make and eat on the go, the other favorite is small banana pancakes that we always bring on picnics and trips.
What has been the most challenging part of motherhood for you?
Except for not sleeping a whole night for six years. I sometimes wish that I could have appreciated the small things more and stayed in the present, not rush for the future so fast.
And the most rewarding?
The incredible bond and connection that you have to each other, it’s almost scary how intense it can be to be so close to another person.
What are you the proudest of in your motherhood journey?
That we have so much fun together as a family, and that the kids ask for frozen peas for Saturday candy ;)
Share a motherhood mantra you live by.
I live by the mantra from Astrid Lindgren:
Give the children love, more love, and even more love, and most things will work out fine.
