Mom of the Month: November
Who is in your family?
My husband is Josh and we have two beautiful boys together. Benjamin just turned 3 and Andrew is 6 months old.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memory is of making mud pies outside! My mom would give me her old pie tins and I would make mud out of water and dirt and fill them up. Then I would decorate them with rocks and flowers. My mom was a good sport because she allowed me to put them in our refrigerator when I was done!
If you had a free vacation anywhere, where would you go?
If I had a free vacation I would love to go to Italy! I would love to see all of the iconic landmarks and enjoy the food with a glass of wine.
What is your favorite "waste of time" or Pinterest find?
My favorite "waste of time" is reading. Thank God for the Kindle app on my phone! My favorite Pinterest finds are the free printables. They are a great way to add character to your home decor or for holidays! I have a few in our playroom too.
What bit of advice or encouragement can you share with the other moms in our group?
It feels odd for me to offer advice to other moms because I feel like I'm the one who needs advice and encouragement! What I have been working on lately is to enjoy the moment because it will pass in the blink of an eye. I am realizing my kids are growing so fast and even though some of our moments feel stressful and out of control, I know that years down the road I will look back and miss those moments. I do not want to look back with regret and remember feeling frustrated and stressed. I want to smile and remember laughing and enjoying my boys.
