Mommy Blogger SpotLight

As a mom, I know how hard it is to sometimes remember yourself. It is very easy to lose your self in family and in your children. I wanted to take a few moments to have a few mommy bloggers tell you what it is to be a mom from their point of view. I follow many blogs and read them often but there are two that I always check into read. These are two strong moms. Both up lifting moms. Get to know them.

As for me being a mom is simply:
Loving beyond means, laughing even when at my worst, smiling because of today and looking forward to being a mom tomorrow. Taking a moment to remember to breathe and to shower :). Being a mom is a blessing and is an everyday job with out breaks. No mother takes this as a job but more of a heart dream. To love, teach and give. I am one of those mothers.

Say hello to these moms, stop by their blogs and give a little hello!

Tell me a little bit about what it is to be a mom in your world?
Being a mom for me means a full time 24/7 job without financial compensation. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, homework help, referee, taxi, therapist, and more for free... unless, like myself, you count watching your children grow and become happy, successful citizens of the world as payment.

What are the first thing you do in the morning before your day gets started?
I lie in bed each morning checking emails, facebook and twitter. Once I manage to get out of bed, my day has already started although there is always time for coffee!

As a mom how do you deal with the difficult questions your child brings to you?
I try to maintain a balance of honesty and innocence. I prefer to not sugar coat issues in life so that my children know to expect the truth from me, but I try to do this with tact while allowing them to still be kids and maintain that precious childhood which fades too quickly anyway.

Do you make time for your special someone? If so how and how often?
I always make time for my husband. We spend every single evening alone together after the kids are asleep, usually watching TV and hanging out. We also have occasional just the 2 of us dinners at home where we eat a special meal without the children and of course, we are lucky enough to have family members who babysit to allow us date nights out as well.

What are some of the things you miss or feel you can't do now that your a mommy?
I miss sleeping in, I miss more frequent vacations and I also miss time alone, which is so rare now. Even though I miss those things, being a mommy still makes it more than worth it.

What are you interest?
I love to blog and enter giveaways to win items for my children, family, and friends. My blog has turned into my passion and it generates extra income for our home. I also love to shop, watch football & cheesy reality TV and read

At the end of the day, what steps do you take to wind down and wind your family down?
My children are on a great schedule so winding down isn't really a problem. They're used to their daily routine. I wind down with herbs after the children are asleep and just enjoy the absence of noise.

Lastly

As a mom what do you think is the moat important thing you have done besides bring your beautiful children in this world?
I feel each and every day is important. You never know what tomorrow may bring and raising a child doesn't happen in one day, or at birth, it's the entire experience and combination of events over time that comes together to create an outstanding adult.

Sincerely,
Mar

1. Tell me a little bit about what it is to e a mom in your world?
Being a mom has been an incredible blessing.

2. What are the first thing you do in the morning before your day gets started?
First thing I do is go to Lj's room, kiss him good morning, then we head to the kitchen for breakfast.

3. As a mom how do you deal with the difficult questions your child brings to you?
Lj is almost 3, so we've yet to get there. But when we do, I will be as honest as possible.

4. Do you make time for your special someone? If so how and how often?
Yes. Have to. Hubby works all day then comes home and puts on his dad hat, while I take a little break. So after Lj goes to bed we spend time together, talk, watch shows and just relax. at least twice a month we have date nights. we go to dinner and see a movie.

5. What are some of the things you miss or feel you can't do now that your a mommy?
I honestly don't miss anything about my life before becoming a mom. I am still capable of doings the things I did before becoming a mom. I've managed to balance it all. At times its not as easy, but I find a way. And I enjoy being home with my family.

6. What are you interest?
I love mani, pedis & massages. So every two weeks I go get a mani/pedi. And whenever I can get a massage I do. I also enjoy reading. Spending time with family. Traveling.

7. At the end of the day, what steps do you take to wind down and wind your family down ?
I don't wind down till Lj is sleeping. So I make dinner, we eat, I bathe Lj, read him a few books then tuck him in. I then head to the couch and put my feet up!

Lastly

8. As a mom what do you think is the most important thing you have done besides bring your beautiful children in this world?
be there for him. never letting him feel i am not there or understand him. validating him and his feelings. teaching him things, helping him learn and grow. LOVING him.
