ON Sunday there won’t be much time for mother of five Naomi Vogler to put her feet up and take in the spoils of mother’s day. 

Mum to five,  all under the age of nine and including twins, Ms Vogler has a big day ahead of her, just like any other.

“We have to be up early to get our son Riley off to rep soccer tomorrow,” Ms Vogler said.

“But it doesn’t really bother me because I’ve never really been one to sit down and put my feet up much.” 

True to her word, at night when her children are tucked up in bed and many parents sit down with a cuppa, Ms Vogler puts on her work clothes and heads off to Orange Ex-Services Club where she has a part-time job.

“I don’t really get tired - I really enjoy going to work at night,” she said.

Her efforts to contribute to the family income don’t stop there.

“I also run my own little business from home,” she said.

With five children every day is hectic and she says her partner Luke tries to help out wherever possible.

“We always seem to be on the go with soccer and footy for the boys and dancing for Brianna,” she said.

Ms Vogler said unlike some expectant parents of twins she wasn’t daunted by the news of a double delivery.

“We knew there was a history of twins on Luke’s side of the family,” she said.

“When they told us we were having twins I just laughed,” she said.

“I love all my kids - they’re so much fun,” she said.
