    1. Do you have a “vent buddy” when you are about to lose it?

    I call my sister Brianna, she always gives the best advice.


    2. Do you make time for date nights?

    We try to have date night once every two months.


    3. What’s one part of parenting that you’re going to do differently than your parents did?

    I feel like I give more freedom to my boys. I would actually ask them what they want to do instead of telling them you are doing soccer so you better practice!

    My children earn tablet time. I do have a deal with my 9 year old, when he goes to middle school he can have a phone.

    My favorite store is aldi, their “aisle of shame” is my go to.

    7. Do you get any “Me” time? If so, what is it?

    A bath and a book.


    8. What’s something parenting wise you wish you were better at?
