Victoria wrote: "They are a wonder to me every day. From a teenage son through to a toddler daughter, each moment of every day is filled with different energies, activities, feelings and a lot of comedy. From playing sport to lounging on the sofa, each of my children fill every second with laughter, music and discussion. They are kind hearted and well-mannered and have incredibly enquiring minds, and I feel incredibly blessed to be surrounded by these phenomenal human beings."
She also spoke how it is a struggle for her being a working mother. "They, too, have a responsibility to work hard, be respectful and never, ever take anything for granted. I hope that I, together with their father, inspire them to dream big and be the best version of themselves that they can be. Like so many working mothers all over the world, I feel the constant struggle to be the best mother I can, whilst setting a good example to my children to work hard. I travel for work when it’s necessary, and I miss them all the time when I am away."
Victoria also dwelled on how small gestures by the kids lighten her day when she is away from them: "They hide notes in my suitcase, which I love to find when unpacking, and I always bring photographs of all the family and put them by my bed so they are the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see when I go to sleep. I love to hear their voices on the phone and seeing their faces -- thank goodness for FaceTime. That sense of feeling connected makes being apart that little bit easier."
