Our Spotlight Mommy of the week is Ashley (GeekLover11)! This is your chance to get to know her even better! Everyone ask questions! You can ask as many questions as you like. Asked one then thought of another? Come back and post it too!
How did you and your SO meet? We meet in 2003 when we were 16!! He was actually dating a different girl that I knew from school. They broke up and we were introduced. We have been together ever since
Why did you choose the name Declan? This sounds SO shallow, but it is a name I heard in a movie quite a few years ago. I loved the name and used it so much that Dh started to love it to. Plus we have a very Irish heritage so it fit.
Favorite thing to do as a family? Sunday under the covers. Sundays are usually very chill days at home, so we usually will spend some time in bed lounging around. Declan loves being in our bed with us.
Do you have other kiddos? Nope.
How many kiddos do you want? Dh and I both have two siblings, so I think I would like to have three as well.
Do you like where you are living now? Any plans to move somewhere else? We live about 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia. We just bought our house 2 years ago, but we are already thinking of upgrading. There is so much baby gear and we definitely plan on having more children, so we want to start to look else where. We hope to stay in the same area though.
What kind of job do you work? I am a public school teacher
What kinds of things do you like to do in your free time? I am in love with makeup!! I do other people's as often as they need me. I also am a pretty avid reader. My Dh bought me a tablet and it is always on me.
Do you collect anything? Makeup I have a pretty intense collection.
Do you have any pet peeves? I think all of my pet peeves have to do with driving. No turn signals, waiting until the last minute to merge etc. I have about an 1.5 hour drive to work everyday so these things really bother me.
What have you found to be the hardest part of being a Mommy? Turning off the momma switch has been so hard. Even if we let him spend the night at his grandparents, I feel like I am on momma mode. I have to remember that it is ok to take time for ourselves.
