Happy New Year! 2021 is here and I think we're all feeling hopeful! It has to be a better year than last, right?!
Let's start the year off with our Motivational Mom of the Month, Grace Festa! Grace has been a member of FIT4MOM for for-ev-ver (*Squints circa The Sandlot) You can always count on Grace to a) make you laugh b) show up with a smile on her face and c) show up late - but that's just one of the reasons we love her!
Join me in getting to know Grace a little better!
How did you find FIT4MOM Richmond and how long have you been a part of our village?
Fit4mom used to meet at Wellesley, the neighborhood where I live. I started with BodyBack when my son was six months old in 2014. But I really wish I had known about the group sooner, because I would have been all about the stroller strides classes while I was still on maternity leave.
What do you love most about being part of this community?
I love all the moms! Momming isn’t easy, and it’s amazing to have a group of ladies going through the same things you are to share tips, and sometimes just to commiserate.
Who are you a mom to?
I am mom to John, who is a big boy now at 6 years old.
What is your favorite thing about being a mom?
I love getting to be a kid again right along with my son. I love watching him discover the world and develop his own sense of self. And of course, I love snuggles!
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses?
One horse-sized duck, for sure. I prefer to throw myself into a single absorbing task rather than deal with a million little things.
