Who am I?
I am a wife and mother of two beautiful little girls, Laila (6) and Faith (2). I have been married for almost 3 years, but my husband and I have been together for almost 16 years. We are obviously not traditional in any sense of the word and we couldn’t be more happy! We decided a long time ago to do this thing called life the way we wanted to do it…together! I absolutely adore my little family and they are truly my daily motivation to always following my dreams!
Becoming a Mom
When I was a little girl, I was unsure about going to college or what my career path would be. One thing that I knew for sure was that I wanted to be a mom. I had the pleasure of being raised by a wonderful woman who literally did what she had to do for the well-being of her children. My mom is my idol, without a doubt. So it is my dream that my girls say the same about me one day. Even if they don’t, I hope they know that I tried my very best to be my very best for them.
Kristen is a really good friend of mine who is also a great mother of 4! Her kids range in age from almost 2 to 11, including identical twins! To add to her title as a wife and mom, she is also a female comedian professionally and shares a Podcast with her husband titled, And Then We Had Sex. I met up with Kristen to get to know more about her as a mom. Check out her interview below!
What type of mom do you consider yourself to be?
I always joked and said I was the ‘cool mom’. My job is unconventional and creative. I’m extremely open with my kids, and I’m all about self expression. Ultimately, I just want what’s best for my kids…no judgement, just advice, discipline, and support.
If your kids were asked to name 1 good thing about you, what would they say?
my hair lol
Do you think there is a such thing as having a favorite kid?
I’m gonna say yes and it’s my daughter…because she’s the only girl and she’s old enough to read this lol. I literally favorite whichever kid that’s in my presence at that moment. I’m a sucker.
What are some challenges you have experienced as a step mom? What advice would you give to someone who is new to being a “bonus mom”?
I haven’t really experienced anything for real. I let my husband do what he needs to do and I am there for support. I just want there to be a mutual respect all the way around because in our situation, we both came in with one kid. So respect is the biggest thing…above anything else…
