Meet Carrie Nowak!

Q: What town/city do you live in?
A:  Green Bay

Q: How many kids do you have?
A:  Three girls

Q: What are their ages?
A:  1, 3 and 6

Q: Do you work outside the home? If so, where & what do you do?
A:  I am a stay at home mom. I also have a small photography business, Astor Park Photography. You can find me at https://carrienowak.wixsite.com/astorparkphotography

Q: What is your favorite at-home activity to do with your kids?
A.  Right now our favorite winter activity is building forts with pillows and blankets and there’s usually a dance party happening a few times a day at our house.

Q: Where is your favorite place around Green Bay to take your kids?
A:  We’ve got a few favorite places, but recently it’s been the Wildlife Sanctuary because of the great trails, wildlife and we can go all year round.

Q: What has been your biggest parenting challenge thus far?
A:  Right now my biggest challenge in parenting is revolving life around 2 different nap schedules and 3 nap times.  Oh and then there’s the never ending battle of my kids putting their shoes on when it’s time to leave the house.  No one can ever find their shoes…it’s like there’s a black hole in our house!

Q: What is your favorite thing to do for yourself when you have time?
A:  Hmm, I’ll let you know if I ever get a moment to myself : )  I’d like to think I’d take a relaxing bath, read a good book or tackle some things on my Pinterest board. But in reality, I’d probably binge watch Netflix and order a pizza with the toppings that you never get to order when you’re a parent.

Q: Are you a night owl or an early bird (despite what you have to be as a mom)?
A:  I would call myself an early night owl.  I like to stay up semi-late, but usually regret it when the baby gives her 6AM wake up call.

Q: Share a funny quote from one of your kids.
A:  I asked my 6 year old what her New Year’s Resolution was…her answer: “To eat more pie”.

Thanks for sharing with us, Carrie! Check back next week to meet another area mom.
