Congratulations to Aly L. for being named our SuperMom of the Month! She is receiving a $100 gift certificate!
Aly has only been in our group since May of this year, but she has consistently been one of our most active members each month. She doesn't usually hold the top spots for the most original posts, but does hold the top spot for most comments in a month. Her comments are kind, encouraging, and thoughtful. She embodies what we want this group to be. Helpful, supportive, community-minded... Charlotte Moms is a better group because she is in it.
I asked her some questions and here are her answers (edited for clarity): Can you tell us a few things about your family and/or things you struggle with as a mom? I have two sons ages 12 & 9, two daughters ages 6 & 3, an awesome and supporting husband who has always done everything in his power to help me be the mom I am today! (I’m sure it sounds corny, but it’s the truth lol) My biggest struggle has to be that I often feel like there are not enough hours in the day (not sure if that’s a mom struggle, or just an adulting struggle in general lol) How do you balance time for yourself? I balance time for myself by making sure I get to the gym 3-5 days a week with at least 1 of those days consisting of a yoga class. I’ve learned how important it is to take the time to recharge - plus the kids love socializing with their friends in the supervised daycare area so it’s a win/win. Why do you like Charlotte Moms? I love Charlotte Moms because I love seeing moms of all ages, from all walks of life, come together to help support each other on the journey of motherhood. What makes you want to be supportive of other moms? I want to be supportive of other moms because as moms we are often our own biggest critics and can be way too hard on ourselves sometimes for no good reason. It’s nice to have a voice of reason to balance that out at times. Happy moms make for happy kids. What is your favorite restaurant? My favorite restaurant is probably SoGos in Concord, though it has been forever since we've been there! Do you have a guilty pleasure? My guilty pleasure has to be watching Netflix in bed after the kids have went to sleep. I can binge watch like nobody’s business!
is proud to sponsor October 2017's SuperMom of the Month!
