Favorite mommy moment: "When you've taught them something and they get it," Day said. "You see that Eureka moment on their faces, where they're like, (gasp) 'I got it, Mom.' I love that moment. ... Oh, silly moments. I love the silly moments. That's what I love. I'm not a silly person usually, so I love when I can be silly with my kids."
Most challenging moment: "I think right now my most challenging moments are when my kids throw tantrums," Day said. "It's so challenging to know what to do."
Stress reliever: Running and list-making
Advice for other moms: "This is something my best friend told me: Don't sweat the small stuff," she said. "I have to tell myself that all the time because I do tend to sweat the small stuff. ... If their rooms are not perfectly cleaned or their plates don't have every food group, then they'll be OK. They'll grow up to be fine adults, I'm sure, as long as we're there for them."
