This mom is a long time friend. We don't see each other often, but when we do, the conversation picks right back up where left off, as if no time had passed. She's an awesome mom, an awesome business woman, and very funny. In short, she's probably the most perfect mom ever. Just kidding, you're the most perfect mom ever!
How many children do you have?
We have two beautiful girls ages 13 and 14.
What do you feel is the best part of being a mother?
Laughing. We laugh so much as a family. And hugs. There are many kinds of amazing hugs in this life, but nothing (for me) compares to the hugs of my children.
Is there a moment with your children that you wish you could take back?
No. Parenting is hard. And there are certainly days that I’m less than great. But the beauty of parenthood is that every day our kids wake up and give us another chance to get it right.
If you could provide any single commodity/experience/advantage to your child(ren) what would it be and why?
I know I can never provide everything my kids deserve. But I hope that they will always feel loved, valued and supported. I hope they know that I will always be here for them.
How many of your pregnancies were planned? Is there anything you would like to add to that answer?
I’ve always known that carrying my own children would be a challenge. Having been diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18, it was always on the back of my mind. When we were married we knew we wanted a family. Thanks to modern medicine we were able to conceive our first right after the wedding. Her little sister followed her 15 months later. Having two babies so close together came with its own set of challenges, but I truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
What is the best gift to receive on Mother’s Day, and why is it a Wisco Home Goods product?
Beautiful scents are always the perfect Mothers day gift!
When, at last, you get some alone time, what do you like to do?
Alone time? I think I vaguely remember what that is!
