HFM: What is your favorite part of the day with your kids?
SM: Bedtime. Every night, almost on cue, my younger one says, “Mommy, will you sleep with us for a little bit?” It’s something I started years ago to keep them from coming downstairs every five minutes after we put them to bed. I get in my older son’s bed (they sleep together). We snuggle, talk, and listen to music. They drift to sleep. I sneak out of the room. It’s “my time” with them and the most important time of the day.
HFM: How do you balance working and home life?
SM: Has anyone really mastered this? I remind myself that I cannot be 100% to everyone every day. Today, I was a great mom. Tomorrow, I’ll give 100% to work. Two days ago, maybe I was the perfect wife. Trying to be everything to everyone every day isn’t sustainable, but I can give 100% to someone everyday.
HFM: Favorite “go-to” meal for the family?
SM: Spaghetti. It’s fast, cheap, and everyone loves it!
HFM: What is your favorite weekend outing with the family?
SM: I love our “family adventures,” which is really discovering new places, parks, and ice cream shops in the city. However, I also have boys, so we often end up with a basketball, football, and soccer ball (yes, all three!) at the park.
