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.
1. What has been your defining moment as a mom so far?
My defining moment as a mom so far would probably have to be moving out of my small hometown (just my daughter and I) and making it on our own. Being only 19 when I had her it was a rough start, but now we've really gotten into the groove of things and being out here in Nashville on our own is a major contributing factor to that.
2. What group do you most frequently hang out in on CafeMom?
I love two groups in particular. I frequent 20 something moms and single moms. They both have a group of moms I can relate to and enjoy chatting with.
3. What do you like most about CafeMom?
My favorite thing about CafeMom is being able to connect with other moms. I've found other moms dealing with the same things I am and being able to chat with them has made me realize I'm doing alright and my daughter is too.
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 spare time doing what I love -- dance. I also carve out some of that time to watch movies, TV shows, and spend time alone with friends and my boyfriend.
5. What are your favorites:
Book: The Hunger Games series.
Movie: Currently I am in love with My Week with Marilyn
Song: Anything Coldplay or The Beatles. Can't pick just one!
Food: I love the food from Popeye's!
Place to travel to: I fell in love with Australia!
6. Which celebrity mom would you most like to hang out with, and why?
If I could hang out with one celebrity mom it would have to be Reese Witherspoon. 1) Because it's REESE WITHERSPOON! 2) I love that she has taken her kids out of the limelight and moved them here to Nashville. 3) Did I mention that it's Reese Witherspoon?!
7. If you could give a new mom one piece of advice, what would it be?
If I were giving a new mom advice it would be to be present and enjoy every minute. It's easy to get caught up in being a new mom and what's going to come next, but those precious baby days are gone before you know it. Enjoy the time you have with your little one. They'll be going off to kindergarten before you know it.
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?
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? And if you work, what's your job? When I was little I wanted to be a dancer. I am lucky enough to be able to say my dream has come true. I work as a professional dancer.
10. If you could trade places with any one person for a day, who would it be?
If I could I would want to trade places with my daughter. She is so full of life and always happy-go-lucky. What I wouldn't give to jump and be free as a five year old again.
Now answer her question for YOU:
What is your wildest dream? I think that someone's wildest dream will tell you a lot about who they are or what they want.
