If any line of work needs inspo, it's motherhood. What type of mothers inspire you?
I am always impressed with moms who are confident in their own skin and clearly not following along with trends. I think the best gift you can give your children is showcasing your own self-love.
Sometimes we're all BAD MUTHAs (as we should be). When did you go against traditional advice?
I try to go against “traditional advice” as often as possible. Every child is different and there is no one fits all model when it comes to parenting.
Better worlds start with better moms. How can the motherhood community improve?
I honestly think moms are doing a great job supporting each other! I would say that picking up a phone to chat to another mom friend, instead of just DM’ing on Instagram is something that I myself, could work on.
I think the best gift you can give your children is showcasing your own self-love.
We all need a champion. Who in your life consistently supports your full spectrum of parenting choices?
My husband. Even if we disagree, we make sure that our kids know that we are on a united team together.
Reverse that. Who in your life do you support without judgement?
My Husband. Well, most of the time!
Fast forward. What parenting insight will you share with your child if/when they become a parent?
Again, I think getting really good at listening to what your inner voice is telling you is “right” and not the rest of the world is key to being a mother and being a successful human. Also, tomorrow is always a new day. It is okay to take days off.
How do you like to MUTHA yourself and ensure you still have some 'me' time?
I have to get at least one hour of a workout in each day. This could be yoga, a run outside or a workout class. I really need this for myself.
