I have another Mom to introduce to you today!
Brittany is a fellow Houston Momma and she has two cute kiddos!
She instantly reached out to me when she came across my Instagram page and realized I was also in Houston…and has just been super warm and welcoming since then!
It turns out she lives in the same suburb that I do. It’s such a small world and that is one reason why I love social media. You can connect with people all over…and people right in your neighborhood!
1. What is your name? How many children do you have and what are their ages?
“Brittany Ashmore. I have two children…Oakland is 6 and Ainsley is 2 (will be 3 in August)!”
2. What is the #1 thing that surprised you the most about becoming a Mom?
“One of the things that has surprised me the most since becoming a mom is how protective I’d be! I mean I am a huuuuge helicopter mom and hate for them to get hurt but it’s one thing as a mom I have to let go of and it scares me. This world is ugly and people are mean. I want to shield my babies from whatever I can while they are young but also let them spread their wings and try things without mommy’s help!”
3. What is something you wish you had known before having children?
“One thing I wish I had known is how much my friendships would suffer. Now I do have friends BUT I am a homebody and want to be with my family all. the. time. Since blogging though I feel like I can really open up to the other ladies and I feel they really “get” me.”
4. What is your favorite go to easy meal or snack?
“My favorite go to meal would have to be eggs and toast for breakfast AND for dinner either soft tacos or spaghetti.”
5. What is your most embarrassing/funny moment as a Mom?
“My most embarrassing moment as a mom is peeing all the time. When I jump, when I laugh, when I cry, when I walk. Bahahahahaha.”
Thank you so much, Brittany, for taking the time to answer these questions! I totally hear you on #3! I never want to take time away from my family but I also crave time with my friends. It’s a hard balance!
