Meet Andrea Brehm!
Q: What town/city do you live in?
A: West De Pere
Q: How many kids do you have?
Q: What are their ages?
A: 2.5 and 4.5
Q: Do you work outside the home? If so, where & what do you do?
A: I am a Physical Education Teacher at Hemlock Creek Elementary School in the West De Pere school district.
Q: What is your favorite at-home activity to do with your kids?
A. Play outside! My husband, Chuck, and I love to go for walks around the neighborhood while the kids ride their bikes. We also love to practice all sports with our kids, especially baseball, soccer and golf.
Q: Where is your favorite place around Green Bay to take your kids?
A: Starz Gymnastics. Both of our kids take classes there and we love the Open Gym/Playdate whenever we can make it!
Q: If you had one parenting tip to share that has worked for you/helped you, what would it be?
A: Something that has worked well for us is establishing a bedtime routine from an early age. With both of our kids, we set up a routine and have followed it since they were very young. We read books, sing songs and lay them down in bed awake. We love it because it lets them know it’s time to relax for the night and we also get in lots of reading and snuggle time.
Q: What is your favorite thing to do for yourself when you have time?
A: I love to do CrossFit workouts and run when I get some “me time.” Both allow me to make myself a better wife and mom by making myself healthier and feel more rejuvenated.
Q: Are you a night owl or an early bird (despite what you have to be as a mom)?
A: I’m naturally a night owl, but I’m trying to convert myself to an early bird to get early morning workouts in before the kids wake up!
Q: Share a funny story involving one of your kids.
A: Something funny that my daughter did when she was about one and half years old at Christmastime, was back up whenever she saw a Christmas tree and stand in front of it saying “Cheese” waiting for me to take her picture. (I guess I went a little overboard that year with the picture taking!)
