Meet The Mamas: Elizabeth

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ON YOUR MOTHERHOOD JOURNEY?

My oldest child, Sophie, is fifteen years old! Yikes!

WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR HARDEST “MOM MOMENTS” THAT YOU WILL ONE DAY LOOK BACK ON AND LAUGH?

I look back on it now and laugh: the time, years ago when I was sitting on the toilet, NOT peeing, and my four year old son came running into the bathroom, screaming that he was going to throw up. Which he did, at my feet, while I sat on the toilet. And then he was followed by my baby, around eighteen months, I think, who was wearing footie pajamas and who proceeded to skid through the throw-up and land with a resounding BONK to his head on the floor. Needless to say, I wiped myself and tried to stand up and deal with everything but it was one heck of a morning!



WHAT HAS SURPRISED YOU THE MOST ABOUT MOTHERHOOD?



Being a mother to my daughter who is severely disabled is NOTHING like I imagined my motherhood to be. I am a changed person in literally every way.





WHAT IS A CURRENT CHALLENGE IN YOUR FAMILY LIFE?

The current challenge is an ongoing one: dealing with my daughter's severe seizure disorder, coping with it and trying to have a "normal" life as well.



MY “MOM SECRET WEAPON” IS…

Humor, the blacker the better.

MY MAMA MANIFESTO IS . . .

Pray, laugh, pray some more but laugh even harder.
