What is one thing your mother has passed onto you? Spontaneity.
What is something you hope to pass onto your child/children? I hope to pass on my work ethic and passion for life.
How do you hope to be remembered by your child? I hope London and Rio will see me as someone they are proud of. They will remember that I was kind, treated others with respect and believed that positive energy can take you far in life.
What is your everyday, go-to mom hack during this extra time at home? I am always finding ways to hide nutrient dense foods in things like pizza and pancakes. I add strawberry Tejari pea protein into the pancakes or peanut butter smoothies. I also sprinkle nutritional yeast on stove top popcorn and call it cheesy corn. They have no idea that it’s loaded with B vitamins. All they know is that it tastes terrific.
How do you encourage creativity in your children? I try to encourage creativity through variety. Whether we’re doing arts and crafts, make believe, dress up, baking, or doing a project, I try to show them that imagination is an important ability and each activity is an opportunity to express themselves!
What advice would you give back to your pregnant self? Slow down and stop rushing it. Learn to accept the body changes and realize that it is such a gift to experience pregnancy. It’s only for a small time in your life so embrace it.
