It’s been a few weeks since I’ve participated in a good Q & A via the ever-so-popular #AskAwayFriday. I’m happy to jump in and swap questions with one of my bloggy gals Beth of Structure in an Unstructured Life. Beth, is a sweetheart. Trust me, you’ll love what she’s blogging, tweeting, and Instagraming 🙂 Beth is filled with great tips, annnnd she is such a sweet loving mother with two super adorable boys.
Don’t forget to check out Beth’s blog to see what I asked her and how she answered. Want to see other Q&As? Click the image below for my blogger #AAF linkups.
Okay, this one is a toughie because I love these kiddos the good, bad, and ugly. However, as much as I love them, I know they are of me, which means they’re not perfect but perfect enough. Their love is perfect. Their laughter, perfect. Their hearts, perfect. Cuddles, hugs, and entertainment-factor…. you guessed it, perfect 🙂
I wasn’t sure if I was going to be a good mother or if I was going to enjoy it. I remember seeing other mothers look defeated.
Yes, at times I’ve felt defeated but I LOVE MOTHERHOOD.
And as much as I’m hard on myself, I know I’m a damn good mother 🙂
However she’s also into the stock market (because she’s a Daddy’s girl) I could totally see her working on Wall Street and then leaving Wall Street, to return to her true passion… baking. She loves to bake.
My 5 year old: He’s a numbers guy and Lego builder. I think he could be an architect, perhaps working with his big sister. He really wants to go to the NBA but I’m his Mama the odds are kind of against him, however anything is possible.
These kids make me laugh everyday. They are super witty, I have absolutely no idea where they get it…. eh hem.
Although, I have plenty funny stories, I love when they are matter of fact. I always think it’s funny when they make a grownup WTH face, at the right time. It cracks me up!
Thanks Beth! I do not see you as glass-half-empty girl at all. I actually consider you to be quite similar to me, someone trying to stay happy & positive.
Trust me I’m not always positive and I’m quite snarky.
I take myself to my grateful spot. It may sound weird but I just remind myself I have plenty to be grateful for. When my kids complain I always ask them “Did you wake up this morning?” Followed by, be grateful. I do the same, I remind myself I woke up and I have my beautiful life. Life is good, tough at times, but good.
I’m passionate about our Troops and their families. We have soldiers fighting our battle daily; they bring that home with them. I don’t think most people realize we still have our troops overseas fighting for our freedom. War effects not only the soldiers but their families. I know this firsthand
For the longest time I have wanted to put together art kits for military children. When their parents deploy it’s hard, I believe art, whether it be drawing, writing or painting can help express their feelings of sadness.
Shameless plug for my girl Becca. Her book Everything But The Posts is such a great book for anyone thinking of creating a blog or someone like me who didn’t think they were going to blog 🙂 I have learned plenty of great tips thanks to Becca. (Now, I need to implement them)
More of the beach! I cannot wait to build sandcastles, bask in the sun, read, countless library visits, SLEEPING IN, and lazy days.
