“I encourage creativity in little ways every day. Norah loves to choose her outfits, she loves to draw, she loves to paint. I think every three-year-old has creativity inside of them.” Jade Sutor (thedarlings_) on family life in mid west England…

Jade Sutor (thedarlings_), 27, lives in a small town in mid west England with her partner Alex and their two girls: Norah, three and Nancy, one.

Our mornings are … my favourite time of day. Sat with my first mug of coffee, a fresh day ahead of us. It’s a slow, quiet time.. Before the madness of the day.

My kids mainly wears … Next and Zara.

I cope with clutter by … I don’t! I have so much clutter and it drives me crazy! I feel like I’m forever trying to declutter.

I never leave the house without …my phone. I am always always taking photos on it.

When no one’s looking I … I spend most days alone just me and the girls, so no one’s ever really looking at me! I guess the girls always do, but that’s just my life.

I encourage creativity … in little ways every day. Norah loves to choose her outfits, she loves to draw, she loves to paint. I think every three-year-old has creativity inside of them, it doesn’t really need to be encouraged.

I’ll never be able to part with … my Mezaya baby sling. It makes me so sad that I didn’t use one with Norah, me and Nancy have used it everyday, we rely on it so much and I can’t imagine what our days would be like without it. I want to save it for it for Nancy to use with her own babies.

When all else fails we … have a bath! A bath calms any situation. Or Mickey Mouse.
