How do you find time for “you” outside of being a “mom?”

You know you just have to make time, really. I have a blog so I’m usually working on that in my spare time. My husband, he had both of them last Saturday for three hours while I took a sewing class.

 

What is your favourite family activity to do together?

I think just playing at the park. I take him to Beacon Hill or Cook Street park. He really loves to be outside. Anything outside for sure.

 

What’s the hardest part of having a two-year-old?

Its challenging with a baby. He’s good with the baby but he hasn’t quite adjusted so I have to tell him just a minute all the time, whereas before I didn’t have to so he acts out a little because he wants me to put the baby down and pay attention to him.
