London: Australian catwalk queen Elle Macpherson has decided to raise her children on her own, without a nanny.
The 47-year-old beauty, who is a mother of two kids, Flynn 12, and Aurelius Cy, 7 with business tycoon Arpad Busso
admits one of her "best decisions" has been choosing to be a hands-on mother and not to rely on the services of staff, Contactmusic reported.
"I have help, but I don`t have a nanny, for example, and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made because I get to participate in all aspects of my children`s lives," Macpherson said.
"I don`t just walk in and do `good time` mum. I do `wake up, even though you don`t want to get out of bed` mum. I do `I`m making you breakfast and I`m sorry but you have to have fruit` mum. I do, `we are doing your homework together whether you like it or not and then we can have fun` mum. There is a profoundness to my experiences," she added.
