Congratulations to Shana M. for being named our SuperMom of the Month! She is receiving a $100 gift certificate!
Shana has been in Charlotte Moms for about a year and a half, but based how many times she comments to helps to support other SuperMoms, Jess thought she had been here for the last 5 years! (Funny, but true!)
Jess interviewed Shana to learn more about her:
Can you tell us a few things about your family?I’ve been married to my husband, Christan, for almost 3 years. I have one son who we affectionately call Peanut.What things do you struggle with as a mom? My mom struggles include, prioritizing myself and accepting that I need help. How do you balance time for yourself?I wake up super early, no later than 5:30 to have time to myself and commune with God. I have also been know to hide in the closet with snacks and I have no shame about that. Why do you like Charlotte Moms?I don’t like Charlotte Moms, I love Charlotte Moms!! I love the diversity of opinion and parenting. I love the funny memes and all of the things I’ve learned from women I may never meet in real life. What makes you want to be supportive of other moms?I was raised by strong women who are all mothers. They have always been there for me and I feel like supporting other moms is just one way I can pay them back for being so amazing to me. Plus momming is hard. And we need all the support we can get. If you could offer advice to a new mom, what would it be?Get a schedule down early, shower and eat when the baby sleeps, put those bottles in the dishwasher and invest in good eye cream. What is your favorite restaurant?Bricktops Do you have a guilty pleasure?Reality TV (Real Housewives and Survivor—yep, still watching it and hiding candy from my husband—again, no shame.) Anything else fun or interesting about you?I’ve been introducing myself as Shana, like Banana since I was 6.
