Never miss a local story.
Favorite mommy moment: When my kids come up to me out of the blue and for no reason give me a hug and tell me they love me. No better feeling.
Most challenging moment: Keeping them motivated in school. They are bright kids, but they don't understand how much it hurts if they don't apply themselves.
Favorite movie: "The Breakfast Club"
Favorite local event: Any of the outdoor events at Honey Horn. Wingfest is good. I like the live music, kids running around, catching up with people I haven't seen in a while.
Favorite quote: "Every day is a good day!"
Something my kids said that inspired me: My daughter, at the age of 13, has her future planned out, and the amazing thing is she will accomplish her goals. Couldn't be more proud.
Best vacation: Visiting family in Colorado, where my children were born
Favorite age: I would have to say when they were 8 and 10. They loved doing anything and everything. Everything was a big deal; it didn't take much to impress or get them excited. But truthfully, I have loved every age, even now as teens. They are such a joy to be around, and it is so fun watching them grow up into young adults. It really gives you an idea of what their character is going to be like as they fully mature.
Funniest thing my children have said: My son, when he was 13, out of the blue in conversation said "I'm pickin' up what you're putting down." I had never heard that saying before. I have to say he is one of the funniest kids I know. Great dry sense of humor.
Advice for other moms: Don't sweat the small stuff. Pick your battles. And enjoy them every day. You always hear people say they grow up so fast; they are not kidding.
