Monday Morning Moms in Green Bay

Meet Sarah Lisowe!


Q: What town/city do you live in?
A: Town of Lawrence

Q: How many kids do you have?
A: Three: 2 boys and 1 girl.

Q: What are their ages?
A: Gavin (5) and twins Vivienne and Everett (1)

Q: Do you work outside the home? If so, where & what do you do?
A: Yes. I am a general music teacher at Hemlock Creek Elementary School in the West De Pere School district. That means I cover a wide variety of musical concepts with students in kindergarten through fifth grade such as musical history, learning how to read music, and of course singing and playing instruments.

Q: What is your favorite at-home activity to do with your kids?
A: If I can get all three kids happy in the same room I don’t care what we’re doing–it’s a win!

Q: Where is your favorite place around Green Bay to take your kids?
A: With the age of the twins, my favorite place to take the kids is to a friends house that is already babyproofed! 🙂 I also love taking my five year old to Starz Academy where he can be loud and get some energy out!

Q: If you had one parenting tip to share that has worked for you/helped you, what would it be?
A: My husband and I have joked that while all the decisions we’ve made have certainly not been perfect, we nailed sleep training. All of our children sleep wonderfully and have since they’ve been old enough to sleep through the night and we attribute this to using the “cry it out” method and sticking to it. To any parents comfortable with using this method, I’d encourage them to try it. There will be a rough couple of nights, but in the process you are gaining a lifetime of good sleeping habits!! 🙂 And everything with parenting is easier if everyone is well rested!

Q: What is your favorite thing to do for yourself when you have time?
A: I enjoy playing my piano, reading a good book, or getting out of the house and catching up with friends.

Q: Are you a night owl or an early bird (despite what you have to be as a mom)?
A: Definitely a night owl!

Q: What is something not many people know about you?
A: Something I’d like to share is that my husband and I struggled with secondary infertility (infertility after having one child with no fertility problems). It was a very long, physically hard, emotionally draining and financially stressful time in which I often felt very alone. But through the process I realized that there are, in fact, many couples that struggle with infertility (way more than you’d think). There just isn’t enough talk about it.

After tests (oh so many tests), drugs, and artificial insemination, we eventually ended up turning to IVF. After one failed attempt and one miscarriage, we were blessed with our amazing twins. So to those that might be struggling, don’t lose faith! You are not alone, and there are many amazing things that modern medicine can do to help. And ultimately, trust that God has a plan and however your family ends up looking it will be the family you were always meant to have.

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