First, above all else, I am a Mom. Everything in my life takes second seat to that role.
Yes, I am a Marketing Director during the day, a crafter and graphic designer by night.
I am a wife, a sister, and daughter. But to me, my most important job is being a good Mom to my three children. I want them to know how much I love them. I want them to see me as their biggest cheerleader. I encourage them to push their limits, to try new things, and I push them to reach for their dreams.
Making time for my children is important. Turning off the computer and spending time with them, reading them stories, making up our own, singing silly songs and having flash dances during dinner are memories that we are creating together and that I hope they remember when they are grown. My mom did the same sorts of things with me and I've found myself recreating some of the fun we had with my own children. Random treasure hunts was one.
