Personal Quote:

Funnily enough, I'm actually a very disorganized person! However, this changed completely when I had children. Although I'm quite absent-minded, I run everything like clockwork when it comes to the children, with no mistakes. I think about everything and I'm super organized. Having children really changes your life! See more »
