How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM Greensboro and what has it done for you?

I’ve been a member of FIT4MOM Greensboro since September 2017.

This wonderful program has provided me with a space to practice much needed self care. Through Fit4Mom, I’m able to take care of my physical well being by participating in Stroller Strides, as well as fulfill my social and emotional needs through various events like Moms Night Out and Play dates. As a new Mom, I really appreciate our online village, where I can seek support instantly. Wether it’s a question about breastfeeding or the best place to eat at in Greensboro, I know where I can go for reliable answers :)

What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?

Motherhood is messy- literally and figuratively. Unlike other jobs, success in motherhood can’t always be tangible. Things can’t always go according to plan— sometimes Jesus or baby just needs to take the wheel.

List three current obsessions.

Stroller Strides, Amazon Prime, Chick Fil-A

What is your child's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?

Brent loves to play peekaboo and to be carried in his baby carrier while mama works out!

Any tips for other moms out there?

Never apologize for anything that you have to do for your child and give yourself plenty of grace because you’re only doing what you think is best for them. Take care of yourself, so you can take care of others. Lastly, Embrace the chaos and ride the wave.
