This is the first in what we hope will be a series of interviews with real life moms, talking about their real life adventures raising kids. (Know any awesome mamas we should interview? E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and put us in touch!)
Elise Rosemarin, co-founder of Moody Mamas, recently interviewed Liz Wickstrom, a 28 year old stay at home mom who just brought home her third baby, Claire Elizabeth Wickstrom. Elise talked to her a little bit about what it's like to be a superstar mom to a newborn and two toddlers.
ER: Congrats on the new baby! Are you home yet?
LW: Yes! Back to reality!
ER: How are you feeling? I love the name you picked out, Claire Elizabeth... sounds very regal...
LW: Ha, thanks. I feel great, kinda tired. First night was rough!
ER: I bet! Did you have a c-section or...
LW: Normal! Got my epidural at 3, had her at 5:10!
ER: Wow! That's awesome. You are amazing...do you have help right now?
LW: Yes, the hubby is on big kid duty and my mom is here helping with laundry and cleaning.
ER: I'm happy that you are getting some much deserved help! Just saw a pic of the new baby and the fam--you look great. Was the third time the charm, ie. was it easier this time around?
LW: The labor/delivery was. The pregnancy was rough! It was hard having energy for the older kids!
ER: I bet. I hope you are getting to relax now.
LW: Yeah....Jared just took the kids to the zoo so it is nap time. Got to get some rest while they are out!
ER: Ok! Enjoy the nap!
