My name is Hannah and I have 2 daughters – they are almost 3 years old and 1 year old.
2. What is the #1 thing that surprised you the most about becoming a Mom?
How much it makes me love my husband more – seeing him spend time and play with them always melts my heart. I knew I loved him as my spouse but it has increased seeing him as my children’s father.
3. What is something you wish you had known before having children?
I wish someone would have told me to appreciate sleep, alone time, and my personal space. I would have slept in more.
Baked yams are a snack favourite in our house. Cut up a yam into medium/thin slices, spread some melted coconut oil, sprinkle cinnamon on top, and bake for 25 minutes. It’s amazing!
5. What is your most embarrassing/funny moment as a Mom?
I was meeting up with my dad while he was in town and we decided to meet up at a large indoor play place with the girls. I had just potty trained Annaliese so she was not wearing a diaper and I was not used to making her go to the bathroom all the time.
After a while of Annaliese playing she suddenly runs over to me and tells me she needs to go to the bathroom. I take her to the nearest bathroom and quickly realized she had already gone somewhere in the play place. UGH! I was that parent.
I located the play place staff and let them know about the situation. I was so embarrassed! I would have gladly cleaned it up myself but what are you to do when you have no idea where in the giant play place she relieved herself. So, from now on I always make sure she goes to the bathroom before going into any park/place structure.
