HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ON YOUR MOTHERHOOD JOURNEY?
The Great Potato, our greatest reproductive achievement, is only 18 months old, but it feels like I've been a parent forever.

WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR HARDEST “MOM MOMENTS” THAT YOU WILL ONE DAY LOOK BACK ON AND LAUGH?
I'm a natural klutz so there are lots of stories of falling down, spilling sticky milk everywhere, on top of the baby, in the baby's eyes, etc., that at the time made me dissolve into new-mother tears.  Eventually, it will be my badge of honor.

WHAT HAS SURPRISED YOU THE MOST ABOUT MOTHERHOOD?
How tiring it is!!!!! And how you could love something so much with all your being who can be annoying 23 hours out of the day.

WHAT IS A CURRENT CHALLENGE IN YOUR FAMILY LIFE?
The Great Potato suffers from numerous medical issues that keep us on our toes.  It affects our lives everyday.  I can't really say yet whether it is making our family better, but it is definitely making us stronger.

MY “MOM SECRET WEAPON” IS…
A baby iPod.  We can't go anywhere without a easily accessible stream of comforting classical music.

MY MAMA MANIFESTO IS . . .
to be honest and authentic with my words
to ask questions where there are no answers
to create a safe and happy home for my developing son
to teach my friends and family humility, grace, and acceptance of those with special needs
to better the world for my children
