Happy Mother’s Day! May 10, 2020
A very happy Mother’s Day to all the super mums out there, from everyone at Intrust Super! Now more than ever it’s important to appreciate the good things in life. So, let’s spend today celebrating all those hard-working mums out there!
This year we asked a few mums from the Intrust Super team to share some of the reasons they love being a mum and their experiences of parenthood.
Danielle Vogelsang, Client Service Officer – Intrust360°:
“One of the best things about being a mum is that my son thinks I am expert on everything. As though I have completed every university degree known to man:
“Mum, where do babies come from and why don’t I have a brother or a sister? Mum, tell me why the stars sparkle in the sky like that? How come no planes fly over our house anymore? Mum, are their bad people or just people that make bad choices? Can I be more than one thing when I grow up, like a policeman AND a scientist?” The questions are endless. My response: “I think I know the answer, buddy, but because my memory isn’t that good, I should check with Google first. I want to make sure I give you the right answer.” I’m really not sure how mums can survive without Google.”
Megan Jory, Relationship Manager:
“What I love the most about being a mum is that I am always needed. Whenever there is a sore knee, cranky bub or any kind of drama, it’s Mum to the rescue! As much as some days are so incredibly challenging, I would never change the blessing of my son. I am amazed at every milestone reached. He is truly amazing!”
Stephanie Langdon, Executive Manager – Employer Service and Sales:
“When I had Hudson, I was very nervous for him. Having never been the girly type as a kid, I didn’t really know what kind of mother I was going be. I grew up with a mum who showed my siblings and I unconditional, patient and non-judgmental love. A love that empowered me to be strong, independent and considerate of others. These are the exact qualities that I encourage for Huddy every day. He wakes up and tells me his ‘mantra’ which is “I am strong, I am kind, I am loved”. At the end of each day, we lay in his bed sharing stories and he tells me all the ways he has been strong (physically or emotionally), kind to others and felt loved or showed love throughout the day. He makes me feel very proud to be his mum.”
