CafeMom is excited to announce a way we're featuring many of our terrific moms. We just launched a new "Mom of the Day" area. Selected moms will respond to our "Mom of the Day" interview questions, and their interviews will then be posted in the group that they spend the most time in.

Our current featured mom is matreshka, who frequents the Depression Support Center group.


1. What has been your defining moment as a mom so far?

It's hard to pick one moment. I would have to say when my now 15 month old was at the ER and I was admitted also, that I left my gurney to be by his side pulling my med bag along with me to make sure he was getting the proper treatment.

2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom?

Depression Support Center.  I have been through a lot with having a mental disorder along with tough times in my life.  I am a survivor!

3. What do you like most about CafeMom? 

Being able to meet moms and forming a bond, moms that I wouldn't have had a chance to meet in my area.

4. A mom's spare time is precious (if it exists at all!). How do you spend yours? (Aside from on CafeMom, of course.)

I do light exercise, meditation, arts and crafts, reading.

5. What are your favorites:
Book:  What Is To Be Done? N. Chernyshevsky
Movie: The Jerk
Song: If Looks Could Kill - Camera Obscura
Food: Indian Cuisine
Place to travel to: Southern Utah

6. Which celebrity mom would you most like to hang out with, and why?

Angelina Jolie, I would love to travel with her, lol

7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be?

Breathe, relax, you're doing a good job.

8. If you had to choose, what single word best sums you up?

Persistent

9. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up

A lawyer

10. If you could trade places with any one person for a day, who would it be?

Hillary Clinton

Now answer her question for YOU:

What is your favorite activity to do with your kids?

 I love to go to the zoo with the kids. Since we got the membership , we can drive to the zoo whenever we want and have a good time.

My son is grown, but we still do lunch and movies! Sometimes his girlfriend joins us.  He's a great kid.

My favorite thing is to pick them up and toss them on the bed. Repeatedly. The laughs that ensue are just priceless.

And I already told you but we share very similar tastes in music I think! :)

It is so great to officially meeting you! Your family is beautiful.
I love snuggling up and watching movies, baking and decorating cookies and doing things to make a difference in the community with the family.
