Sponsor-From Mrs. to Mama

I am guest posting over at From Mrs. to Mama today. Becky sent me a list of questions for me to answer! It's always easier for me to answer questions or even write on a certain topic when I sponsor  I am terrible when it comes to thinking up a topic/post that's fun for everyone to read. LOL! Thanks Becky for the questions...

1. What are some of your favorite things to do with the kids?
-I love doing crafts! I was a teacher before I was a SAHM so the "teacher in me" comes out often. ;)  We also really enjoy playing outside or setting us play dates as well. Just recently  Wyatt has really started enjoying baking and cooking with me. Dancing is a SUPER fun thing we like to do as a crazy dance time in the kitchen together, those are super fun memories! 

2. How do you and your husband balance family time with alone time?
-We REALLY try to take date nights or even just time alone without kids no matter the time of the day. Since Mark goes into work at 1pm two days a week sometimes we try to get breakfast together. We are preparing to leave on our first adult only vacation too. This is something I feel so strongly parent's were a perfect example of this and I know how important taking time as husband and wife is for everyone, the Bible says so. ;) 

3. Any advice that you would like to give to women that are expecting?
-Enjoy being pregnant...inside your belly is the (usually) the safest place for your baby to be...each time you are miserable/are "done" being pregnant give your belly an extra rub and enjoy those moments. You will miss it, I promise!  

4. When you have questions on motherhood, who/what do you turn to for answers?
-Without sounding cliche I have created a pretty good habit of immediatly getting on my knees and praying about it. I also am so blessed that I can call my mom...I also have some mommy friends I trust to ask questions to as well. 

5. The question that I'm sure you get asked often.... are there plans for any more blessings down the road?
-No, it's not in OUR plan. LOL! After losing Ryder and then getting pregnant with Sloane we learned pretty quickly the stress that comes with another pregnancy (in ADDITION to the normal stress) after losing a child.  This is something we have both prayed about and have been given a very clear answer. We love our perfect family and have no plans to change anything. 


  1. Hi Emily! I just got an email to read Becky's post today and to read your story. I too lost my son (a twin5 years ago this year). I loved reading your posts. We raise our kids in a christian home as well...and like you...have regular dance parties with our kids.

I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
