What are the names and ages of your children?
My children’s names are Gabrielle (7), Elias (5), and Camilla (3).
One word to describe motherhood.
What is a recent parenting “win” you’ve had?
My 3-year-old has totally blossomed over the past few months. She has learned to color using her feet, actively plays. She’s communicating effectively, gaining strength, and hitting milestones. We waited so long for this. Even her older siblings are proud of her, cheering her on. Seeing how excited they are for their sister is another win. I feel lucky that they have such a great connection.
What is something you have learned since becoming a mother?
What is a characteristic/quality that your child has that you admire?
