Over the years, how have you learned to balance career and motherhood?
I’m still trying to figure that one out. Everyday is a challenge. I admit, some days I think I can’t make it… you’re so tired, drained. But there’s something that Adora does to me. She’s only 24 pounds but finds a way to give me strength and energy I didn’t know existed.
Is there one particular parenting lesson youve learned about raising kids?
Raise them from the beginning (I mean birth!) the way you want them to behave later. This was tremendous help when we were trying to establish a sleep pattern.
Even when it rains I force myself to get outside. So many of us spend our day pent up in an office.. or the house. It’s amazing what fresh air, even for 10 minutes, even in the rain can do for you.
Tools or products you cant live without?
I love my Bob Stroller, iPhone (we facetime with everyone– baby loves it!), Mum Mums rice cracker snacks, Jacadi velour jumpsuit (sooo soft!)
Do you have an inspirational quote, motto or philosophy you can share with us?
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day.That’s a heck of a day. -Jim Valvano
