Marital Status: Married
Kid: Robert, 18.. Haley, 17.. Mark, 17.. Alison, 16.. Brucetopher, 7.. Payten, 6.. side note: Haley and Mark are not twins, they are 3 days apart; Haley is my husband’s daughter from a previous marriage and Mark is my son from a previous marriage.. another side note: Brucetopher is named after my husband, but not like you think: Brucetopher was my husband’s nickname when he was younger; my husband wanted a junior and I didn’t, so we compromised (lol).. funny note: my husband’s ex-wife and I were both in the hospital at the same time giving birth and didn’t even know it!!
Occupation: Delivery Driver for FedEx
1. If you could go back to one part of your kid’s life and enjoy it all over again…what would it be?
Their first few years of school when they used to light up about going to school and how excited they would be about telling me how their day was at school.
2. Was it difficult trying to get pregnant?
Nope, I’m fertile myrtle (lol).. I have to have strong birth control in order to NOT get preggers.
3. What’s one “mom chore” you would forever outsource if you could?
Cooking!! I do NOT like to cook. I don’t like trying to come up with things to make, or grocery shopping for the ingredients I need, or the preparation.
4. Do you have any picky eaters? How do you deal with it?
Yes, all of them have multiple foods they will not eat.. but that’s too bad because in my house, you either eat or starve.. yes that sounds harsh, but when there’s as many people in my house as there are at any given time, it gets to be too much to cook 6 different things because someone doesn’t like what was made.
5. Do you daydream about being a stay at home mom?
YES!! I would love to be a stay at home mom again. It was so rewarding to me because I got to be apart of everything they did, but as a working mom, it’s difficult to be involved in everything.
6. What’s your meal plan for the week?
Well, I used to make a menu each month, but that has since stopped because my job keeps getting in the way.. we don’t really eat a lot of fast food, so the kitchen is almost always being used.. but an example of one weeks worth of dinners is: Sunday, burgers and fries; Monday, chicken legs with mashed potatoes and veggies; Tuesday, pizza; Wednesday, nachos; Thursday, pork chops with mashed potatoes and veggies; Friday and Saturday are make your own dinner nights.
7. What’s the one thing you would have done differently so far with your kids?
Discipline: I was too hard on the older ones and I’m not hard enough on the younger ones.
8. What are you currently obsessed with?
Masks (lol)!! I can’t get enough of them!! My husband tells me I have a problem (lol).
9. Are you content with how your life is now?
Very much so.. I love my life right now.. the kids are healthy, my husband and I are doing really well, the house is starting to get more character finally, the bills are paid.. so life is good right now.
10. Anything you are looking forward to at the moment?
Yes, this stupid pandemic ending (lol)!!
