Rachelle Rowlings can no longer remember what life feels like without kids.
The 31-year-old Sydney mum of son, Roman, and daughter, Rumer, is beloved by her Instagram followers for her frequent ‘warts and all’ accounts of exactly what it’s like to be a busy (and yet, freakishly stylish) parent.
Her latest post is no different. It’s so accurate, it’s striking a chord with parents across the country.
“To dear people without kids…I no longer remember being you,” Rachelle wrote to her 21,000 followers.
She then hilariously detailed all the ways her life has changed since having children, comparing her ‘mum life’ to the carefree, clean lives of those without kids.
LISTEN: Meshel Laurie explains how to be less ‘busy’ almost instantly, and all the ways in which doing so will make you a better parent. Post continues after audio.
“I begrudgingly look at you while driving my sensible people-mover, Roman spraying milk onto the roof trying to catch the falling drops with his tongue and Rumer auditioning for the next Scream instalment.
“I see you, actually sitting to eat, ordering scalding hot drinks, and eating foods you have to use utensils for.
“I hear you talking about Cardi B, thinking it was a new type of gym exercise. And how you use Snapchat for actual videos not just filters.
“I notice that you don’t make lifelong friends with people who are in healthcare queues and that you actually enjoy leaving the house.”
