Motherhood is a very special part of one woman’s life. It starts with the moment she feels nauseous, it continues when she hears the word “positive” (the nausea comes back) and it ends…….never. The strongest connection that can exist in this life is between a mother and her child(dren). Some mothers prove how far they can go for their children by doing things out of the ordinary.
They might seem crazy, but thinking outside the box always looks like that. And no one knows this better than Morgan Brechler. The 25-year-old mother is, as she says, a “nature groupie” who likes to take her daughter, Hadlie, on her back and enjoy climbing. We are inclined to believe her, especially since she studies sustainable agriculture during the week, works for a landscape design company and volunteers at a community garden. And together with two other mothers she is part of a documentary project called Born Wild which explores the lives of three mothers trying to balance the daily “battle” between traveling and motherhood.
Her story begins when Hadlie was just a few months and they started going on short hikes around the mountains of Phoenix, Arizona: “We started out very basic, short hikes, local to where I live and just grew from there.”Actually, the rock climbing idea began when Hadlie was just 18 months old and her mother installed an indoor wall for her to practice climbing. So at the age most mothers potty train their kids, Morgan was teaching her daughter how to climb fake mountains. Wow!
So far, these two wonders have on their list great locations like Joshua Tree (California), Grand Canyon (Arizona), Mexico and Hawaii. But they don’t seem to want to stop here. You can follow Morgan on Instagram where she has over 11,000 followers and some of the most amazing photos you’ve ever seen.
“It’s important for kids to be in touch with nature – we get so lost behind technology.”
“I think it’s easier being an outdoorsy parent than someone who takes their kid to the mall on the weekends. It’s natural and we have a lot of fun together.”
“My life began when Hadlie became a part of it. She’s my best friend and my inspiration – there’s no one else I would rather share my adventures with than her”
“People enjoy feeling like they are a part of that with us – plus Hadlie’s adorable.”
