Meet today’s Monday Mom, Alyssa Kraszewski.
Q: What town/city do you live in?
Q: How many kids do you have?
A: One, with a second due in October. 🙂
Q: What are their ages?
A: Our daughter is 2 years old.
Q: Do you work outside the home? If so, where/what do you do?
A: Yes, part time at the YMCA in the Wellness Department.
Q: Where is your favorite place around Green Bay to take your kids?
A: We love local parks, beaches, and the library — we certainly miss story time!
Q: If you had one parenting tip to share with others that has worked for you/helped you, what would it be?
A: Less is more! We think as first-time parents it’s necessary to buy all the best toys for our kids. This is not true. My daughter LOVES playing with my husband’s old matchbox cars, my barbie dolls from 25+ years ago, and using her imagination with boxes, household items and etc.
Q: What is your favorite hobby when you have time for yourself?
A: Playing volleyball, fantasy football and cooking new, unique meals for my family.
Q: Are you a night owl or an early bird (despite what you have to be as a mom)?
A: Early bird.
Q: A funny quote from one of your kids.
A: My husband and I are due with our second baby in October. With our daughter, we kept her name a secret until she was born. With our son coming this fall we want to do the same thing. We are almost certain to have picked out his name, and clearly we have been talking about it. I asked my daughter recently what we should name the baby. I thought she would say Elsa, Mulan, or Mickey (some of her favorite characters right now). To my surprise she blurted out the name we have picked. What a sponge! 😀
Thanks for sharing with us, Alyssa!
