Profile of a Parent

If you have been a reader of this blog for a while, you may recall my mention of a very special friend, Susan, who has had the great misfortune of selling her soul to the devil. How do I know this? By 6 weeks postpartum, Susan was in better shape than I have ever been in my entire life (even that summer after 7th grade when I played soccer for 6 hours a day consecutively). Well, my fabulous friend is also this week's fabulous profile of a parent!

Name: Susan, Sue, Mommy, Ma Ma

Mother of: Abigail 3yrs, and Kyleigh 7 months, Ace (The Dog) 4yrs

What You Did Before You Were Someone’s Mommy: I was a mortgage loan officer for Chase Home Finance.

What You Do For Yourself Now: Going to school for personal training and nutritional consultanting.

What is your favorite thing about being a mother: Seeing your children smile with a sparkle in their eyes that says they love life!

What is the one thing you wish you’d known before you had children? How much sleep I should have stored in a sleep bank…I would definitely be making some withdraws lately!

What would you do with an extra free hour in your day? Read or work out…maybe sleep. Can I have two hours????

Who are your go-to people when you have parenting questions? My Mother.

What is the one thing your child(ren) do that always makes you smile? When Abigail sings "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", and when Kyleigh does the raspberries and spit goes everywhere.

Who is your favorite fictional mother? Caroline Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie .

If you could be someone you know for a day, who would it be? Oprah…just to see how it would feel for everyone to take my views as if they were God’s.

If you could ban people from doing something, what would it be? Ban the truck drivers to stop driving their tractor trailers on the NJ Turnpike or anywhere in the state…they cause so many accidents.

If you could make one mixed CD that would be the only music you could listen to for the rest of your life, what songs would you put on it? “Streetcorner Symphony” Rob Thomas, “Everyday” Dave Matthews Band, “Pink” Aerosmith, “Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” Aerosmith, “You Were Meant for Me” Jewel, “Bent” Matchbox Twenty, “Back to Good” Matchbox Twenty, “Billy Jean” Michael Jackson, “No One”, Alicia Keys, “Paralyzer” Finger Eleven, “Angel” Sarah McLachlan,…… and to keep me laughing “Holiday Road” from National Lampoons Vacation.
