Happy Sunday everyone!
I typically don’t blog on the weekends, but decided since this is a special post it could have a special day. Recently I found a really awesome group on Facebook called the Sensible mama Cha-O-Rama. It’s a super supportive mom group and one of the members suggested we do a little get to know me post! Most of the other moms are youtubers, but I decided to stick to what I know and write mine in a blog post! Thank you Nicole for suggesting this and thinking up the questions!
- What is your age?
I turned 24 a couple months ago
- How many children do you have and how old are they?
I have two babies. Emerson, my son, is 18 months old and Eloise will be two weeks old on Wednesday.
- Would you like to have more children?
I would love more children, but not sure if I will have more. Nick and I have talked about potentially adopting or fostering kids in the future. Right now the plan is to enjoy the kids we do have, and pray about the future.
- If married, for how long?
Nick and I are celebrating four years in November! Honestly I can’t believe it, sometimes it feels like no time and sometimes it feels like it’s been 25 years. You can read more about us here.
- Where do you live?
We live in Phoenix, AZ. I was born in San Diego, but my family moved to Arizona when I was in jr. high. I definitely miss the beach, but I prefer the cost of living here in Arizona.
- Are you a SAHM, WAHM or do you work outside the home?
I consider myself a stay at home mom and left my corporate job when I had Emerson. However, I do still work a little bit. I teach dance on Saturdays during the school year at a local youth theater. I also sometimes choreograph musicals for youth theaters, schools and summer camps.
- What are your favorite mommy product brands and why?
I could write a whole post on just mommy products, but I’ll try to keep it simple. My favorite diaper bags are ju-ju-be because you can wash them and they’re super high quality. I love water wipes because I’m not putting chemicals all over my kids, I love Aden and Anais swaddle blankets because they’re light weight and very soft. I love love love shopping at Carters for clothing because I think it’s adorable and I can always find good deals at the outlet.
- What are some of your hobbies?
Blogging, teaching dance, planning parties and decorating my house. With two kids under two years old I don’t get much time to myself so the idea of hobbies is kind of abstract right now.
- Is there anything you wish you could tell your pre-mom or new mom self?
Just that you get used to it. The lack of sleep becomes normal and eventually you don’t get scared every time you have to drive your child somewhere. People will always have an opinion, but if you listen to your mommy instinct you won’t regret it.
- What is your least favorite chore?
Taking out the trash. Especially when it’s 115 degrees outside. No thank you.
Well that’s it for the ‘get to know me’ Thanks so much for reading! If you want to watch all the other awesome mom’s you can find the playlist with all their videos right here 🙂
