What is your favorite memory as a mother?

I have many favorite memories as a mom! However, nothing beats the first time my husband and I held our daughter. There is nothing that can prepare you for the rush of love and the completeness you feel! While I enjoy watching our daughter grow, learn, and hit new milestones, that is a moment that will remain on my heart for as long as I live.

Are there any celebrity moms you would rate as a “Perfect 10?” Why?

1. Rachel Hollis and 2. Samantha Ponder If I could rate two celebrity moms the “Perfect 10” it would DEFINITELY be these two! I love how real and genuine they appear to be. They share their successes as well as their struggles when it comes to motherhood and life in general. They are strong in their faith and their family’s come first. I share the same belief system and if I could have a coffee date or play date with any two celebrity moms, it would be these two!

What was your biggest misconception about being a mom?

That there is a “best way” to parent. There is not one single formula to parenting, but many of them! As a mom, you have to figure out what works best for you and your family. Motherhood looks different for each mom and may also differ with each child. What works for one family will not necessarily be the best way for another. We need to allow ourselves the grace and understanding that it’s okay that we’re not all the same! Doing what’s best for our family is the best way to mom!
