What’s your favorite parenting tip? Do everything with love. Even when you have to discipline them, after you correct their behavior make sure to remind them how much you love them.
What has surprised you most about parenting? How much your heart grows and how much you love your children. It has helped me to understand how much God loves me.
How do you get your kids to eat healthy food? We don’t offer them junk. We also talk a lot about how nutritious foods give them energy and keep them healthy.
How do you work exercise into your family’s life? We turn on music and dance! My kids love to jump around, and it’s fun and good for all of us.
How do you recharge your batteries? I enjoy times when I have childcare but am not at work to have a pedicure, go for lunch by myself, or read a book. I also just started going back to the gym, and I enjoy that.
