At the state Mother of the Year ceremony we had some photos taken by a photographer who was with Woman's Day Magazine. He waited around until all of the media had finished interviewing us, and all the other photographers had taken pictures, before he came up and told me he was with Woman's Day and that he was hoping to get some photos.
I totally thought he was joking at first, but he assured me that he was with Woman's Day and that we would be featured in a story about all the state finalists. He was a very funny guy and had us laughing the whole time with his jokes. I'm sure he was doing it just so we would relax and it worked as he got some lovely photos of the boys and I together. This was the photo that the magazine used in the end.
The boys having a chat with the premier after the announcement. I think I'm nervous about what the boys are going to say! ;)
I love this photo. Kobe looks so happy and proud.
Barnados Mother of the Year website. It was such a kind thing to do, even though I still don't think I deserve it over anyone else. I'm grateful to have such an amazing experience though.
I can't believe my boys are looking so grown up.
