Sarah Bates is the mum of Hadyn (aged 7), Callum (aged 5), and identical twins Erin and Orla (aged 3). The wife of Stuart Bates, she gave up her administrative job 7 years ago to raise the children. Instead of enjoying motherhood, she often seemed to lose patience rather quickly and didn't like her kids cooking or doing crafts.
She was seen blaming Hadyn for making a mess when actual fact all the children were to blame. After being taught how to light up with her children, she eventually enjoyed and benefited from her children. At the end she remarks of what positive she saw with the girls.
