CafeMom is excited to announce a way we're featuring many of our terrific moms. 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.
1. What has been your defining moment as a mom so far?
I only have one son so far, he is three and a half months old, but my most defining moment as a mom so far would definitely have to be the first time I held him in my arms! There is no better feeling in the world, and no other way you can feel greater than for when you hold your baby in your arms for the first time, especially as a new mother!
2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom?
Hands down, the January 2012 due date group. The ladies in the group are incredible. I feel so close to them, even though it's online! I can get any advice and talk to them about anything at all, and not feel judged. I love that group.
3. What do you like most about CafeMom?
I like how there's so many moms on here and I've talked to a lot of great people on here! During my pregnancy (with my first) I had so many concerns and questions, and I didn't really have a lot of people in real life who could help me, but I got a lot of reassurance and support, and even now that my sons born, I still have questions, and I definitely feel like I get great support and any advice I may need, still!
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 spend my time relaxing as much as possible in my spare time (after my sons asleep!) just laying down or listening to music, or working out. Also, sometimes during my son's naps, my mom will watch him and I get to sneak out and go riding for a bit.
5. What are your favorites:
Book: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. I know this is a child's book, but it has always been a favorite of mine.
Movie: Dear John. I love romance movies, and I thought this movie was great.
Song: I have way too many favorites, but one of my top favorites would have to be 'God gave me you' by Blake Shelton. It makes me think of my son a lot and I listened to it during pregnancy all the time.
Place to travel to: the Ocean. It's so peaceful there, I love it. Or anywhere on horseback, on a trail ride. Riding is so relaxing.
6. Which celebrity mom would you most like to hang out with, and why?
Tori Spelling! I use to watch her show all the time when she was expecting with her son. Now she has 3 kids and I really think she's a great mom.
7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be?
Enjoy time to yourself and sleep while you can!
8. If you had to choose, what single word best sums you up?
9. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? And if you work, what's your job?
I wanted to be many different things growing up. I eventually want to become an Equine Therapist. I would love to be an OB, though, or just simply work at a daycare. I'm a stay at home mom right now.
10. If you could trade places with any one person for a day, who would it be?
Probably Tori Spelling, because she's a great mom and seems to have a wonderful life with her husband. Plus, I'd love to see what it'd be like with two more kids, because I plan on having two more in the future.
Now answer her question for YOU:
What do you think of now-a-days with children and all the electronics? Do you feel kids should be outside getting exercise more, instead of playing video games or listening to their iPods while on the Internet?
