What is your go-to activity for yourself for pampering or for fun?
Funniest shortcut/routine for helping you through parenthood?
There is no shortcut. You just have to embrace every moment because it won’t last forever. Once you are past the current hard stage you will be in the next. One and will forget about all the hard moments that you had before.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Kingwood is a very tight-knit community. The word of mouth travels fast and most everyone is willing to help each other out. It’s very refreshing to see people who have kids in school with our son or go to our CrossFit gym enroll their children in our business.
What is the best advice for juggling mommyhood and running a business (or volunteering, working, etc)? Well, this will be a new venture for me so we will see how it goes. I don’t have any advice yet!
What would you tell the old “You” before you had kids?
Enjoy all the quiet moments and trips with no kids. Enjoy all the little things you can do when its just you and your husband. Once you have kids it’s just so much harder to do all the things. I happy we dated for 4 years before we got married and had kids because we definitely got to travel and do fun things.
What is your proudest mommy moment?
Becoming a mommy.
Greatest gift about being a mom?
No matter what your day looks like or how tired you are those little eyes are always looking at you with love in their eyes. The endless hugs and snuggles and I love you’s make every day worth it.
Best mom hack that makes momming easier? Where do I begin… caffeine, sleep whenever you can, and just embrace the suck. It’s only temporary
What’s your favorite part about what you do?
I like getting to know new people and seeing the kids thrive and learn new skills in the gym.
