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, some times during my sons naps, my mom will watch him and I get 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.

Food:  Chinese

Place to travel to: the Ocean. It's so peaceful there, I love it. Or any where 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 shes 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? caring.

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 shes 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.

11. If there was one question you'd love all CafeMoms to answer, what would it be? 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?

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

Being there for my girls every day and watching them grow and blossom into beautiful, mature young ladies. I couldn't be prouder of the spark I see in all of them that will just continue to glow.

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

I most frequently hang out in the 20 something moms group because it is the most general group with no specific kids' ages, so I can post about any one of my kids there. Also, there are always a significant number of people in that group, which means more answers to my questions in a shorter amount of time, which is quite convenient.

3. What do you like most about CafeMom? 

I love the way it allows me to grab some "me" time and just talk to other moms because a lot of us have the same problems, so we can help each other out. We all pull together when someone needs prayers and thoughts for a rough time, we all enjoy bragging about our kids, we all share many things, but most importantly we all have in common how much we love our children.

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 all of my free time with my girls. Being a mom to 6 girls with a wide range of ages is no easy task. I have to individualize my time with all of them equally. I love just hanging out with them and having quality bonding time with them. Nothing is stronger than the loving bond between a mother and a daughter. I am determined to make that bond tight and strong so that it will never snap in two. 

5. What are your favorites:
Book: The Hunger Games
Movie: Titanic
Song: Somebody that I used to know by Gotye
Food: Fettucine with shrimp
Place to travel to: Paris

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

I would most like to hang out with Angelina Jolie because I admire her for adopting 3 kids. It is difficult to adopt because you are trying to raise kids that have for the most part, been through so much. Also, we both have 6 kids and I would love to compare mothering techniques with her.

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

To always keep your head held high and not let yourself get put down by others. People will make rude or snarky comments and as a mother, you have to learn how to have thick skin and not let it get to you. There's always going to be someone that judges you or disagrees with you and you have to be strong to fend them off.

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

Energetic. I am very bubbly and talk very fast and for long periods of time. I am always on my feet, running from one place to another, and even in my free time, I am always energetic. I put energy into whatever I'm doing and it makes it seem easier and can lighten up even the most boring household chores!

9. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? And if you work, what's your job? 

As a child, I always wanted to be a mother. I loved taking care of my younger sister and I loved babysitting other people's kids too. I enjoyed being with children, especially those of a younger age group. Of course, there were other careers I thought of along the way, but being a mom was always my main fantasy. And now it's not a fantasy anymore because I'm living my dream.

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

I would trade places with my oldest sister. She has always been such an important figure in my life and I have always admired her and looked up to her. She is very determined and strong-willed and can get through just about anything. She inspires me in everything she does and she is someone I can go to for anything.

11. If there was one question you'd love all CafeMoms to answer, what would it be?

I would love for all CafeMoms to answer the following question: what is motherhood to you? Motherhood is such a precious gift that so many of us take for granted. When we yell at our children "hang on, I'm on the phone!" we are in fact, a little bit at a time, diminishing the dear gift that has been given to us. We need to enjoy every moment to its fullest and live every day like it's our last because not one of us is promised tomorrow.
