No one has posted introductions yet so I thought I would get us started by introducing Mag to you all. I interviewed her this AM!
Who are you and where do you live? Melissa (aka Mag) from Spokane, WA
What is your favorite back to school memory? My mom taking pictures of me on the first day of school. I think she tried to do that every year. I plan on doing it with my kids.
How many children do you have and what are their names and ages? Two kids, Sammy is 5 and Abby is 2, but they will both have birthdays before the end of the month.
What is your favorite thing to do with your kids? It would have to be swimming. It is something they both love and the three of us can do together.
What is your kids favorite thing to do with you? Probably to sit on my lap and have my undivided attention for awhile.
What are three things that you have learned since becoming a mother? 1) It is not easy and I don't know what someone else's story is, so I shouldn't judge other parents too harshly. 2) I am my children's number one advocate and I have to be the one to stand up for them even if it is uncomfortable for me. 3) I should base my parenting decisions on what I think is best and appropriate for my kids and not worry too much about what other people will think.
How do you unwind? Talking over the day with my husband after the kids are in bed.
What one chore do you love and which one do you hate? Hate, hate, hate laundry. I don't know if I could actually say that I love any chores, but I do not mind watering the lawn.
