Tell us a little about your family and why it is special?
Our little family started in 2010 and baby joined us in 2014. We were so excited to expand our family and have the chance to be parents. We love to spend time playing and enjoy being outside.
What do you do for work/volunteer outside of being a wife and mom?
Twice a week I go into a Physical Therapy office and do insurance verification and other office duties. Baby gets to come with me to this job! Three days a week I teach gymnastics and cheerleading and love it!
Is there something your family does on a regular basis for quality time?
Our family loves to exercise and be outside. In the warm months of the year we go on walks together or we ride bikes and pull baby behind in the bike trailer.
How do you take time for yourself to recharge?
Getting out of the house and doing things is how I recharge. Baby and I try to go outside every day even if it means sitting on the front porch for a few minutes. Teaching gymnastics and cheerleading is also a great out for me. Sometimes when baby is napping I try to get tons of things done, but other times I take a few minutes to sit down and enjoy the silence.
What is your go to, never fail and in a pinch recipe?
Ravioli with Corn and Cilantro.
Cook a bag of frozen ravioli.
Put about half a bag of frozen corn, a diced bell pepper, fresh or dried cilantro (to taste) a little garlic salt and pepper in a bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. Stir the cooked ravioli into the vegetable mixture and eat it!
If we don’t have ravioli in the fridge we eat waffles for dinner!
What is the one product you can’t live without?
I absolutely love my baby’s walker. He will bebop around in it for quite a while and is very happy to be moving around independently.
What is your favorite One Small Child product?
One Small Child’s holiday outfits are absolutely adorable!
