1. In what ways has becoming a mother changed you?
Most importantly, it has given me soft little squishy hands and feet and chubby rolls to nibble on! Then the bonuses~ It has brought out more of "me." It has heightened my senses, made me more present in simple moments. I am more motivated and inspired to make healthier choices- eating better, being more active, cooking at home more often. I am PROUD of myself- for the mothering I am giving, for the amazing birth experience that we had (Layna was born into water, and I made it through with no pain meds despite her being born at 9 lbs 4 oz.) and for the family that we have become. Overall, it has deepened my understanding of love and life.
2. What is one tip you would like to share about mothering?
I believe this is referring mostly to the newborn stage, but, Layna and I just enjoyed an hour nap together (and we did so yesterday and the day before)- snuggling together, her fast asleep on my chest- a treat that for sure I won't pass up any day. Of course the time for this isn't always available, but when it is, GIVE THIS GIFT TO YOURSELF.
3. What is your creative outlet/medium?
4. How do you find time for creativity?
The photography is the easiest to fit in only in the sense that lately my subject is Layna! Also, taking the camera along wherever we go allows for a simple walk to be a creative time.
5. Why do you blog/journal?
Started mostly for a means to keep those at a distance in the loop, updated on what's happening with Layna and the family. Also, a place to connect with others out there in this wacky world, a place to empty my thoughts......if only I could keep up with it.
6. Which blogs do you frequent?
When I have time~ for the fellow mother thoughts- Mother Rising, Pink Coyote, Little Birds, and others on Mother Rising's link list, along with Dooce now and then for a laugh... also- Bird in the hand, Superhero, Jen Gray.
