Meet our February Motivational Mom of the Month and NEW Playgroup Captain, Sydney!
How did you find FIT4MOM Richmond and how long have you been a part of our village? I was a member of the Falls Church-Vienna-Fairfax Village until my family moved here in October 2018. The first thing I did after moving was join this Village!
What do you love most about being part of this community? The support of all the Mamas. No matter what phase of motherhood you’re going through, there’s always someone who’s been there before and is willing to listen and help.
Who are you a mom to? Louisa is 16 months and our second baby girl is coming May 2019
What is your favorite thing about being a mom? Being able to watch Louisa discover the world around her. Also, she gives the best hugs.
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses? One horse-sized Duck.
How do you stay fit when you're not working out with FIT4MOM? When I’m with my family - hiking. On my own - yoga
How do you practice self-care? When I can have a few hours to myself, I love mani/pedis. If I can’t get away from the house, I try and practice deep meditation before bed.
Where did you grow up? I grew up in Fairfax, VA
How did becoming a mother change you? I’ve learned to be way more flexible and patient
What is the last great book or television series you've read/watched? I’m currently watching Hinterland on Netflix. I’m hooked!
How did you meet your husband? We met on OKCupid and our first date was at a coffee shop.
What did you want to be when you grew up? A painter
If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves inhabiting your current body, what would she do first? Reach the top shelves where we hide everything she can’t have.
If you could give any advice to a new mom what would it be? You’re not alone and it’s ok to ask for help.
Sydney, we're so happy you and Louisa are a part of our village and can't wait to meet baby girl #2!
Mamas be sure to join Sydney on Valentine's Day. She's got a super cute keepsake craft planned for the kiddos!
