Meet Candy of the Tanna Tribe
Here at Arnhem we've been loving this amazing tribe of six for a long time.
The cutest little bubs famous for their stunning eyes and cheeky grins have received so much love and attention from you,
so we thought it time to introduce you to their incredible mumma ~ enjoy xx
THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT BEING A MUM IS
Being a mum is such an indescribable feeling. To love my babies more then I do myself and to see how much they love me is priceless. My heart just swells.
THE FAVOURITE THING ABOUT MY JOB IS
Well I work in retail.. both surf fashion and also beautiful boho fashion. In both jobs I love that I can meet new people.
I aim to help them choose something right for them and for them to be confident in what they have bought.
I make so many new friends through my work and I love having that opportunity.
I JUGGLE MY BUSY SCHEDULE BY
Seriously I’m still learning how to! Four kids makes for a super busy life. We pretty much have to have a routine otherwise nothing gets done.
The boys are really helpful with their little sisters and Patrick is really hands on too. I suppose we work as a team to get things done.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT HAVING A GOOD WORK LIFE/BALANCE IS
Keeping work at work and focusing on the family when your home. Be in the present and enjoy your time with the kids/family.
I for one don’t want to miss a second of it. I know these times with a busy household will one day come to an end.. I don’t want to waste it!
THE WORDS I LIVE BY ARE
Love Bears all things, Hopes all things, Believes all things and Endures all things. LOVE NEVER FAILS. 1cor13:7
MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE HAS BEEN
Ohhh hands down being a mother! I try to be a perfect mum and at the same time forgive myself when I fall short.
Learning it’s ok to not have it all together and that my kids love me no matter what! So long as they are loved, fed and taken care of the rest is forgotten.
PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ASKING ME
If we are having anymore babies!! Haha and the answer is... nope nope nope!!! This baby making shop is well and truely closed!
THE FUNNIEST THING ONE OF MY CHILDREN HAS SAID TO ME IS
How do I even pick?! On the daily these kids say something funny.
All the kids when they were/are little would mispronounce words that are so wrong but so funny at the same time.
The boys are torments so always cracking jokes, but hands down Dai-Shaun the second oldest is by far the funniest.
He used to say all the time “I don't even want to be your mum!?”
But no joke, every second day the lad will be singing up to songs in the car, singing all the wrong words thinking he’s got it right!
Even little Zendaya is catching on and has already got a funny little personality.
THE KIDS BLUE EYES COME FROM
My dads side of the family all have blue eyes.. even my brothers eyes are blue. Mine are an Amber Brown and Patty’s are Green.
However to have children with Blue eyes the blue gene has to be present on both sides of the family.
Patty and his Aunty are the only two known family on his side to have light eyes but they think there might be a great grandmother or down that line that has blue eyes.
But still it’s amazing that all four kids have Blue eyes. We are still in awe!
THE BIGGEST LIFE LESSON I'D LIKE TO SHARE IS
Patty and I have lost four babies to miscarriage.
I remember being that broken girl and in those times was completely shattered and felt like my life was always going to be overshadowed with pain from our loss.
We didn’t give up and after a very long road of recovery we have found our happiness again.
So when life is cruel and you're going through tough times remember there is always something worth fighting for.
Life can be beautiful again.
