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

All I have ever wanted was a family of my own. My mother had me very young and gave me away to my Great-Aunt. My defining moment would be having my children at a young age and being able to care for them despite my age as well as being independent.

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

Mom Confessions, never fails to amuse me!

3. What do you like most about CafeMom? 

I love the humour on here.

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

If not on Cafemom, and I actually do get the time to relax, I enjoy watching and reading things pertaining to interior design. 

5. What are your favorites: 
Book
: Blindness
Movie
: Breakfast at Tiffanys
Song
: Priscilla Anh - Dream
Food: Sushi
Place to travel to
 : New York ( still waiting for the day to travel to Paris )


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

Noone I can think of at the moment.

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

In my opinion, brand name clothing in the early years. With our first child, we bought everything brand name! It ended up being a waste of money, as well as crib bedding since we didn't get to use it. He grew out of clothes we bought after a month. 50$ on a shirt he only wore twice, not smart.

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

Random.

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

I always wanted to be a lawyer,I went to school for law BUT waking up early for court proceedings and staying up late at night reading citations just wasn't really for me. I ended up dropping out, and now I've finished my studies in Occupational Health and Safety. Not practicing YET.

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

My mother. She says I'll never understand her or her choices in life. We're in a good place right now, but I'd love to go back in time and trade places with her for one day. Just to see.

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

Is your online person any different from your real life?

3. What do you like most about CafeMom? The advice I get from the Autism support groups.

6. Which celebrity mom would you most like to hang out with, and why? Pink. She's the only one that doesn't strike me as an uppity bitch lol.

7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be? RELAX! It's not as hard as you're making it out to be.

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

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 actress or a model (and I did model, up till I had DD).

10. If you could trade places with any one person for a day, who would it be? Someone with no kids! LoL

11. If there was one question you'd love all CafeMoms to answer, what would it be? Why does it seem like I'm the only mom on here who doesn't hate her husband?

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

Many defining moments, but the one that sticks out in my mind is the first time I nursed my son while combing my daughter's hair. It was such a revealing moment. Here I was with two children, multi-tasking and keeping them both happy. I felt complete and I remember wishing that someone could capture a picture of this moment in time.

 

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

I'm always in the Beauty 101 group. Learned so much in that group about skin care, hair care, different ways to apply makeup, tips on nail designs and nail care. Lots of the advice is all natural remedies for hair care too. Really fun group!

 

3. What do you like most about CafeMom?

I love having conversations with moms from all walks of life. Networking, learning, sharing perspectives with moms from all over the world.

 

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 yoga. I take long walks. I love to cuddle with my husband and watch a good movie or relax and read a good book. Boating is one of my favorite things to do - in the summer time you can find me on a boat.

 

5. What are your favorites:
Book
: The Secret, The Nanny Diaries, Charlotte's Web, Women Who Run with the Wolves, Waiting to Exhale
Movie
: The Back to the Future Trilogy, Cabin in the Sky, Sparkle, Imitation of Life(1959), O' Brother Where Art Thou, Kill Bill Vol.1 & 2, The Matrix, Fried Green Tomatoes, Big Fish, 50 First Dates, Forrest Gump, The Nanny Diaries, Food, Inc., Riding in Cars with Boys, The Devil's Advocate, Shallow Hal, Family Man, The Devil's Advocate, also I watch a lot of documentaries.
Song
: Not so much favorite songs but I do have favorite music artists: Mariah Carey, Anita Baker, Jay-Z, Amel Larrieux, Sade, BeyoncĂ©, and Aaliyah.  I do really love the song called Stars by Kindred the Family Soul.
Food
: Gyros with feta cheese, Enchiladas and refried beans, Cesar Salads, Corned Beef Reuben Sandwiches, Thanksgiving food, Salmon Croquettes with Spinach, chilli cheese fries, fruit salad
Place to travel to
: I love visiting my family in Texas.  I have always wanted to visit Hawaii, Amsterdam, and Paris.

 

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

I would love to hang out with Mariah Carey. I love to sing and she is my favorite singer. I would absolutely want to sing a duet with her and chat with her about being a mom to her beautiful twins.

 

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

Trust your instincts! Trust your rooted in nature motherly instincts. Not a book, not cultural norms - your motherly instincts. If something in your gut feels right or wrong - listen to it and don't second guess that. Don't blindly take advice either. Everybody will give you advice also but ultimately do what you feel is right.

 

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

Philosophical

 

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 really wanted to be a doctor. As I got older I knew that the field of medicine was not for me although it still fascinates me. Eventually, I found my career passion and that is Recruiting/Human Resource Development & Management. I left corporate America to be a stay at home mom. I currently work from home as an Independent Contract Recruiter -very flexible work being able to telecommute and I love that it allows me to be a SAHM. I am also a college student. I aspire to one day work on an executive level as Vice President of Human Resources for a company and make the workplace mom-friendly by implementing flex time and telecommuting opportunities where applicable.

 

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

No one. That might be a boring answer but I don't desire to trade places with anyone for a day. My life is interesting enough!

 

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

What have you learned from Cafemom?

1. What has been your defining moment as a mom so far? The entire first 3 years of my sons' life. It started with finding out I would be a single mother, and dealing with that. Then it was that my son would be born with defects and a whole slew of problems coming with that. Our recent times have included the suicide of my sons' father. It's been so hard. But somehow here I am - and my son is smiling and happy, every day. That's all I can do - make sure he keeps that smile on his face no matter what I am going through.


2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom? Elite Mommas Photo Contests, Siggy Dynasty & Newcomers. 


3. What do you like most about CafeMom? The fun, the friends, the drama.


4. A mom's spare time is precious (if it exists at all!). How do you spend yours? (Aside from on CafeMom, of course.) Hanging out with my mom, playing bingo, watching Criminal Minds.


5. What are your favorites: 
Book
: Nothing will ever beat out my favorite Twilight Saga.
Movie
: I just watched the Vow, probably my favorite movie recently.
Song
: Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
Food: Anything bad for me! =P
Place to travel to
: My Nooma's house! We love going there. Family means more to us than anything. And we don't travel other than that usually, lol.


6. Which celebrity mom would you most like to hang out with, and why? So hard! I think I would chose Maggie Gyllenhaal - she seems legit cool. I probably should pick someone like Michelle Williams who pretty much went through/going through what I have. 

7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be? Realize that not everything you say you will do will happen and it's ok. Motherhood is mostly about switching paths and realizing at the end of the day, you're still doing just fine.


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


9. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? And if you work, what's your job? From about the age of 5 I was telling people the only thing I wanted to be when I was older was a mother. Now that I am a mother, I wish I had waited, lol. It's alot tougher than I ever imagined.


10. If you could trade places with any one person for a day, who would it be? My son - I just want to know how he feels about me, even on my worst days. I would love to know first hand that he still loves me all the same.


11. If there was one question you'd love all CafeMoms to answer, what would it be? Would you ever consider leaving CM for good? What would be your reasons?
