Guest Blogger - Alicia Buck
I like to think I know what I'm talking about when it comes to babies, toddlers and preschoolers. But School Kids? I'm totally out of my depth. Alicia Buck on the other hand, knows her stuff. She is the mum I hope to be someday. She is simultaneously organised, type-A, smart and in-control, whilst still being her children's calm, safe haven. She manages to balance work, life, marriage and a crap-load of extra curricular activities with the most wonderfully positive outlook. And she is an amazing friend to boot.
I think everyone needs a mum friend who is a few years in front of them in this parenting gig, that they look up-to and admire. Alicia is that person for me. Her children are kind, honest and interesting people, which I think is a reflection of her (and her husband Adam's) amazing parenting. If I can grow into half the amazing mum she is, then I'll be doing well.
