In celebration of Mother's Day, for the entire month of May we'll be featuring local moms of preschoolers and toddlers.
Today's Featured Mom is Linda!
When you were a teenager and you thought about your future life what did you think and how does the reality match up?
What is the hardest thing about being a mom?
Losing my hair and gaining a muffin top.
What is the best thing about being a mom?
The new feeling of fulfillment and hearing the word "Mama".
When you think about your parenting style, what words would you use to describe it?
All new mothers get lots of parenting advice, sometimes more than they want! What was some advice that you appreciated and would pass on to others, or alternatively, what was the worst piece of advice you ever got ?
The best piece of advice i got from my Doctor and she said to follow your gut.....No really bad advice to speak of.
What is the one thing you wish someone had told you before you became a mother?
That you will lose yourself....but you will also reinvent yourself!
What kind of grown-ups do you hope your children will become?
I hope my son uses his knowledge wisely, is kind to people and finds happiness in the things he choses to do.
How do you keep a sense of balance in your life between being a mother and a person in your own right, or between your career and family (if you work outside the home)?
I don't ! I have committed to two years being a full time Mom so nap times are golden!
What do you do to ‘get away from it all’?
