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

My daughter is 16 months, so I haven't really had a long time to have that many defining moments... but I would say that it has been the realization that not only does time go fast but it also doesn't. She is growing quickly and learning fast, but that doesn't take away from the time I've had with her and will have with her. 


2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom? 
The December 2010 group and this group. 


3. What do you like most about CafeMom? 

The ability to talk to other moms and get advice and just the learning experience. I've learned so much since joining just by reading the many responses and the wide variety of topics.


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 crochet, read and write. 


5. What are your favorites: 
Book
: Catch Me
Movie
: Tangled
Song
: Who Says
Food: Mexican
Place to travel to
 : Not sure


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

I don't really know. I don't think about celebrities often and I don't often follow their lives. 


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

Don't plan on what you're going to do after you have the baby because it basically all changes once you have that baby. Until you are there... you won't know what you're going to do.


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

Different


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

A vet. I'm now in school to be a psychologist.


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

I wouldn't want to. I'm happy where I am at and with who I am. There are a few things that I want to change and am working on changing but that's it. i don't want to be in anyone else's place. 


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

1) Knowing that even with sleep deprivation and a 48 hour labor, nothing compares to being a mommy. Holding my baby girl is my own personal piece of Heaven.

2) I visit the WAH mom groups, because I'm constantly on the look out for ways to earn income and still be a SAHM.

3) Meeting people I otherwise wouldn't meet.

4) blogging, doing counted cross stich, studying God's word, church functions, being on FB and hunting for bargains at thrift shops.

5)My favorite book is the Bible. My favorite movie is the Wedding Singer. My favorite foods are anything Italian or Mexican, and Disneyworld is my favorite place I've ever vacationed at.I haven't been there since 2000, but someday I hope to go back.

6) I don't know.

7) Prepare and freeze at least 1 months worth of food before the baby comes, and don't be surprised if people act like you don't exist for a few months. You may want to believe that you'll have several visitors coming to see how you're healing, how the baby is doing and bring a meal. Unfortunately people will give you space for the 1st few months thinking that's what you want. Even if you're child has special health issues and you need the help. Only depend on yourself.

8) caring

9) I always wanted to be a SAHM and writer. I've achieved both.

10) I don't know.

11) Is it just me or does it seem like people should do more to support you during the newborn phase when you're sleep deprived, healing and your husband's at work all day long?

So many a day I have a need to vent and make sure I am still sane. There are alot of questions, I have at times, and who else is better to ask than a parent.


4. A mom's spare time is precious (if it exists at all!). How do you spend yours? (Aside from on CafeMom, of course.) In my spare time I love selling Dove Chocolate Discoveries.

Our Chocolate Martini's and Truffle Brownies are to die for!

Cherish every moment. 

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

besides stressed or tired.... Special.

I wanted to be a princess! 

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

I would love to trade places with Robin Williams any time. I would love to keep everyone laughing. 

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

I would love to know if there are any other mom's on this site with that have special needs children. My children have Type 1 diabetes, and aspergers. They both have Epilepsy too. But are currently controlled.

1. What has been your defining moment as a mom so far? The moment that I realized I loved them more, than I hated myself. (I was totally all emo before the term "emo" existed)


2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom? Mostly the Make a Difference Group. The Newcomer Group. and Confessions 


3. What do you like most about CafeMom? I like reading and replying to the posts, the friends I've made, being a group mod. 


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 work part-time for the YMCA. I am busy planning to homeschool the kids next school year. I answer surveys online to earn money and gift cards. Sometimes, I blog for yahoo or knickledger. I babysit to make extra money. I am ALWAYS busy! Lol. I like to read for pleasure. I like to write poetry. I like playing on pogo.com and acrochallenge and bingo blitz on facebook. I love singing. I love spending time with the kids and somehow with everything I do, I do make time for them.

5. What are your favorites: 
Book
: Hmmm. I like way too many books to name a favorite
Movie
: Disney's The Little Mermaid

7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be? You're never going to be perfect and while that doesn't mean that you shouldn't try your best, don't sweat it when things don't go exactly as planned. Your kid will swallow something he or she shouldn't. You will get a purple poop when they munch on a crayon. Lol. Your kid will escape from you at least once in public and you will feel incredible panic and then such intense RELIEF when you find him or her two seconds later. Then comes the anger. It's all normal. Lol.

1. What has been your defining moment as a mom so far? It's really hard to pinpoint a single moment. I've been through a lot with my children. Through severe allergic reactions (food allergies), serious illnesses from said reactions, head-first falls out of shopping carts (and managing to stay cool as a cucumber!). My second baby stopped breathing one night and being able to deal with that without hysterics. Surviving Postpartum Depression and using that experience to advocate. There's a lot to choose from, but maybe the one moment was the day I really realized this was my calling in life.


2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom? Pregnancy! I love that group, I love helping others, and I love being pregnant! Can't wait to add to our family.. :)


3. What do you like most about CafeMom? The diversity, the wealth of knowledge, the understanding (and the hatefulness, lol)

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 really enjoy baking and cooking. My favorite dish right now is balsamic glazed pork chops- and they're a hit with my toddler!

5. What are your favorites:
Book
: A Song of Ice And Fire
Movie
: Conan The Barbarian (Jason Momoa, baby!! YUM! No sparkling teenager nonsense in this house!)
Song
: Bad Company (both the Bad Company and Five Finger Death Punch versions!)
Food: The fabulous balsamic pork chops mentioned above, STEAK!, I love garlic in my food.
Place to travel to
: Florida :) Born and raised!


6. Which celebrity mom would you most like to hang out with, and why? I like PINK's no BS attitude, but I love Jessica Alba's natural-minded parenting views.


7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be? Stand your ground on your birth and parenting choices. Sleep when that baby sleeps. Make sure your partner and family know the signs of PPD, and get help if they think you should be checked out.


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


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 an anesthesiologist. And a pediatrician. And a rockstar.


10. If you could trade places with any one person for a day, who would it be? My 5 month old daughter, so I could nap whenever I want, not worry about chores, and have someone feed and dress me. ;)


11. If there was one question you'd love all CafeMoms to answer, what would it be? What has been your biggest challenge as a woman or mother?
