Hi everyone, I recently got tagged by my fellow mom and lovely blogger friend, Jan, to join her in this fun thread, so of course I jumped right on it. If you don’t know Jan, she’s basically a positive foodie who has a way with words. She writes about anything and everything, much like I do, so if you love Growing With Spawn, you will most likely love her too!
Who am I?
Stealing Jan’s words – “I’m a working mom by day and a blogger by night”. I currently have two kids, Spawny (the muse and reason for this blog) and my husband … and they are both my world!
What’s a perfect day?
This has changed so much since the year started, so take this with a pinch of salt, but a perfect day is one where I get a good workout in, spend quality time with my kiddos and also have time to just ‘woosah’. Lately I’ve been enjoying reading other blogs, watching tv series and just staring into space. I think with everything going on in life, it feels really nice to just stop and do absolutely nothing. I forgot to mention the most important part of a ‘good’ day – good food! Pizza, fruits, a lovely salad and a sangria are definitely a must!
What do I do?
Ugh I really hate this question… I mean, what does anybody do? Professionally I’m in the currency trading industry, but I’d like to think that this question is more of a “what do you do in your free time” than a boring “what’s your occupation”. So answering my version of the question; I write a lot, I listen to music, I get lost in the YouTube black hole, I play with my kiddo and binge talk to my younger sisters. I used to be more outgoing, but lately (and probably due to the dreading ageing process) I enjoy doing anything that doesn’t require much any muscle movements or brain power.
Why do I blog?
Those of you who have been following me since the beginning may have already read the post about this, but for those who are fairly new, I do it to express myself and leave something for my daughter to read when she is older. My mom died when I was just fourteen and I never got to know her as anything other than a mom – something I never really got over. Well, that’s not happening with spawn! I am expressing myself so that my daughter can one day get into her mama’s brain. I’ve been documenting out lives since falling pregnant with her and a lot of what I actually write doesn’t make it to the blog because… well… it’s a bit too personal.
