Meet Jody...

Why hello there!
Welcome to our website.

As a mum of six kids aged from 9 to 22, I am often asked "How do you do it? What is it like? Are you nuts?!"

To be truthful, I can't answer a lot of those questions. I have no 'tricks of the trade' when it comes to motherhood and I am stumbling along like the rest of you. (By the way, that's me jammed in the picture above, second from the left, squashed under my son.)

So let's be hopeless together!

Want to know another truth? I never even intended to have six children either, so sometimes I too, am shocked by the size of my own family!
Following my career in the advertising industry, my kids just happened; all desired and all planned... And I love it.

I have learned a thing or two though in my time as a mum and sometimes I even surprise myself. (I think I might even know some stuff too!)

I do like to enjoy myself in whatever role I take on and I take life quite lightly.

Update 2022 - In the last two years, I have lost my 90 year old Mother, followed by my Husband one year later. I am a widow of 10 months now. I am also a breast cancer patient of over 6 years. 

Things have not always been easy but I certainly make the most of what I have.

Humour floats my boat.

Maybe that's a bonus. Maybe that's the key to it all...

The Six Little Hearts family when there were eight of us - now sadly, seven.

Since my life, choices and the size of my family seem to be of so much interest to others, I thought I would write about it on this website. Through it, I hope to give you a glimpse of my world. Maybe you can grab a great family recipe, find a parenting tip and hopefully have a laugh along the way.

Six Little Hearts is presented like a magazine. It's not just about us, it's relevant to all mums and families. We especially like to write reviews for this audience.

I love craft,(though I barely have any time to do it), baking sweet stuff, watching my kids grow and navigate life, plus exploring my passion for the beauty of Melbourne with my kids by my side - and sometimes not!

I appreciate the finer things in life: Champagne, good food, high teas, travel, fashion, beauty, good movies and books.(Don't even get me started on bags and shoes!)

You will find many of these things covered on my website, as well as the more nitty-gritty parenting stuff. Plus quite a bit on lifestyle topics.

I am not just a mum after all.

My last day of radiation therapy for stage III advanced breast cancer, 29th August 2016.
Now stage IIII breast cancer as it is in my brain and controlled by 3 weekly chemo infusions.

In other news, I regularly write product reviews of great things I think other parents would like to know about. I love appliances and cooking and sharing the opportunity to win something fab with our readers in one of our frequent giveaways.

Blogging is an exciting journey.
