The Tale Of Sonia Killmore


"Motherhood has taught me so much,”" says Sonia Killmore. “"It'’s teaching me what life’s all about, showing me a side to life I hadn't explored. It keeps surprising me.”" Killmore – a fashion designer – lives in a beachside apartment with her 23-month-old daughter, Ellul Bell, and partner, Murray Bell, in Sydney’'s Tamarama. “"Most mornings, Murray takes Ellul for a walk as soon as we wake, so I can meditate and shower in quietness. I'm not much of a morning person, so this is heaven to me. Murray or a grandparent are always around which means there is always the opportunity for me to have time to myself, but often I would rather be with my family.”"

Killmore took 15 months off after the birth of her daughter, before returning to work part-time. "“I love hearing how others do handle the juggle, everyone's circumstances are very different. I also find it’'s always changing. As a child grows their needs change, and so do yours, so you need to respond by changing and doing things differently. My friends and I talk about it a lot. They're the ones who keep me sane. They are always supportive, grounding and great to laugh with.”"

Sonia's little list of loves:
Family time, especially on the weekends.
I really look forward to the two days a week Ellul and I have together.
