This month's M.O.M is Carrie! She's a working mom of two on maternity leave who crushes it at Stroller Strides every week. Your rock, mama!
1. How long have you been married?
2. How did you meet?
Playing kickball on the National Mall
3. How old is your little one?
Ryan is almost 3 (in December) and Ethan is 3.5 months
4. What do you like to do as a family?
We love playing hide and seek with our oldest. He's still getting the hang of the part where HE hides...
5. What is your favorite part of motherhood?
Seeing the world through my kids' eyes. My oldest used to cheer when the bread popped out of the toaster oven. It made me realize that there are so many little things to be happy for every day.
6. What is one piece of advice you would give a first time mom?
Trust yourself. Even though you've never been a mom, you will somehow just know how to be a mother. Trust your instincts and don't Google everything!
7. How long have you been involved in SS?
Since June of 2016
8. What classes do you usually attend?
Stroller Barre and Strides
9. What brought you to us?
I was looking for a regular activity that would be both fitness-based and social. I also have a coworker who is planning to join as soon as she is cleared post-partum. We agreed to join so that we could workout together.
10. Why do you stay?
The classes (and instructors!) are fun, the workouts vary enough to keep you on your toes, and the sense of community I feel with every session. Everyone is so friendly, helpful, and understanding. Being a mom can feel lonely at times but it's groups like this that help you realize you are definitely not alone!
