It’s a very interesting story as to how did I come to know about Sushi short for Sushmita Targett.
It was a very stormy and windy night…..NO…..its not that type of a story mommies!!!!
Sushi and I were introduced to each other via an Instagram group for mommies, & one day I invited her to speak with us and we instantly bonded over the Skype/Whatsapp and then Skype call I guess!
I was really touched by Sushis story who really decided to be a mom at 22 because she was in love with a man who had two kids from his former marriage and you know what she decided that she should be a mother to them before anything else.
Sushi…..we love you a lot and wish you all the very best in your life. You are truly a SuperMOM.
SuperMOM Asks: So Mommy Sushi tell us in detail about your Instagram and the concept behind the same? Sushi says….My Instagram is all about my parenting style and lifestyle. It features my kids and my dogs, sometimes my husband too. I like taking photos and I use Instagram as a platform to get some appreciation I guess. I am not your mainstream mother nor am I a hippie. I guess I can be borderline sometimes, depending on perspective. But I like all things natural and that is my style of parenting. It involves home birthing, breastfeeding, cosleeping, and homeschooling. I use Instagram to meet like-minded people and share my ideas about some of the concepts mentioned above. I have made some lovely mama friends since the birth of baby Ro, especially in India and I can’t wait to meet them all on my next trip to India.
My parents, especially my mother has always been my friend. My dad passed away when I was 14 years old and since then my mother has been my pillar of strength. She has her set values but she never imposed any of them upon me. Her ways of parenting and mine although have a lot of similarities, they can be different at times, for example, my choice for a homebirth, homeschooling or even going vegan etc. Having said that my mother has never stopped me from pursuing a lifestyle that I am comfortable with. When she visits me she learns about my choices and tries to live like me. Only after having experienced life my way she then gives her opinion on it which I really appreciate. We are friends, we talk and we are teaching each other new things every day. The one thing I want from my mother is her ability to be so open-minded to her child. I aspire to be like that (which I struggle to be with my kids, I can be very opinionated).
SuperMOM Asks: Tell us something about your life as a Mommy in Margate town, 2 hours from London? Am I right?
SuperMOM Asks: How do u balance the day with the kids and plus Instagram, personal work and the blog and dog walking? Sushi Says: My big two go to school at the moment (it is soon going to change as I have decided to homeschool them from next academic year starting in September) so I use the school hours to run my small dog walking business. Baby Ro comes with me. I wear him in a sling and walk dogs all day long. As far as social media is concerned, I need to do more. But I try and do them after kids go to bed. One of the benefits of raising kids in the UK is that bedtime is 7 pm. So once kids are in bed, I focus on myself and my interests.
