What's one of your earliest memories?

Disney World at 4 1/2 years old, and not getting to ride the Dumbo ride. I threw a tantrum because we stood in line for over 2 hours and my mom had to pee.

Was there something your parents did when you were a kid that you swore you'd never do yourself?

Made me pay for college. I will pay for my kids' college and start them off in life debt free. Still paying my own student loans.

What's the hardest thing about being a mom?

Staying patient.

What's your favorite thing about being a mom?

Watching them grow more confident with each day. Watching them learn to fail on small things and overcoming them later. Will prep them to be so much stronger as adults.

What has been the best milestone so far?

Teaching them how to read. Reading leads to so many other things in life, like reading a good book together, or reading street signs when we're driving and teaching them what they mean.

Fill in the blank - I hope my kids would describe me as _______ .

A good cuddler.

What's the secret weapon hiding in your purse or diaper bag?

Hand sanitizer.

Any 'oh sh**' moments as a mom?

My son jumped into a pool without his floaties during a pizza party. I was throwing trash away and had my back to him. A friend had to jump in to save him while in his work clothes. I balled my eyes out.

What's one thing you wish you knew before having kids?

They say you lose sleep. They forgot to explain you will be exhausted for several years.

What's the best piece of advice your mom (or another mom) gave you?

You'll want to run when your child falls, but don't rush over to them. Wait for their reaction before you react.

Any advice for a mom just starting out, or about to have a babe?

Sleep, sleep, sleep. Get a good stroller and go on lots of walks for you and the baby.
