TV personality Zizo Tshwete is taking motherhood in her stride, but life isn't always Instagram perfect. We caught up with Zizo to chat about her little one, how her man Mayihlome is as a dad and how she juggles it all. And we asked the really serious questions, like has baby pooped on her yet...

In March 2016 Zizo and Mayi welcomed their baby boy,  Vukile Tshwete, into the world. Mayi often shares posts of his little man on social media, but obvs it's not all that it's cracked up to be.Between changing nappies and pitching big client briefs, Zizo found time to reveal what really goes on in her household.TshisaLIVE: What’s the most tired you’ve ever been? Zizo: Most days are jam packed as a working mom, but I remember a particular time being on deadline at the office for a big client project that was exhausting. I was doing that during office hours while sorting out suppliers (we have a project on the go at home), doing my radio shift, driving home in traffic to cook, playing with our son before his bedtime and trying to make time for my husband. Whny they had fallen asleep I had to pull out my laptop again and make sure I was prepared for the office the next morning. I slept in the early hours of the morning. I had gym with my trainer first thing the next morning. I was sooo tired....I felt like I was operating on autopilot.Damn! But you made it!  What's the funniest mom thing that has happened to you?Our son has peed on me many times during nappy changes and pooped on my hand. It’s not a good idea to be fully dressed in your work clothes before changing his nappy because anything can happen - he is very fast.Lol! Life has clearly changed...Yes, there is no room for spontaneity. I have to plan properly to make sure he is always taken care of because of all my other responsibilities.We know hubby is helpful, but what’s the funniest thing you’ve seen him do with baby?He hates the poop nappy changes and so his reaction to them is always funny. He never gets used to how much poop there always is. Ha! But there are obviously special times.Everyday they share special moments because our son is growing and changing all the time. But he always wants to workout with my husband. I don’t know how he thinks he can do sit-ups and stuff at his age.

The best moment in your day is?Getting home to my boys. Our son gives the best hugs in the world.The long hours and poop nappies - what make it all worth it?Knowing that he will always have what he needs and wants.  My purpose is to ensure that he is always happy and healthy. I would do anything for my boys. We're sure you put you're foot down sometimes.What's the one thing you hate about what people do around your baby?I don’t allow strangers to kiss our son. I find it incredibly personal and don’t think its right for people I don’t know to just plant their mouths on our son.So hashtag blessed, huh?I am the happiest that I have ever been. Our son is so funny, smart, happy, healthy and he brings us so much joy!
