Getting to Know Motherhood: Sonia La Vigne
What are the names and ages of your children?
I have three children, two boys and a baby girl. Connor 6, Jacob 4 and Ellis 1.
Use one word to describe motherhood.
Rewarding… especially now with a school aged child. Our oldest’s teacher says he is kind and respectful.
What is a recent parenting “win” you’ve had?
My husband travels for a living so any time I can get all three kids fed, bathed and asleep before 9 pm I call that a win.
What is something you have learned since becoming a mother?
Less is more. After three kids there are so many things that I didn’t use with the third. Other than diapers and clothes, the top three things for a new baby would be a baby carrier, bassinet and a few swaddle blankets that can double as a nursing cover or shade from the sun.
What is a characteristic/quality that your child has that you admire?
My middle son Jacob is so empathetic. If he sees some one upset his immediate reaction is to go and hug them and make sure they are okay.
