How did you find Fit4Mom? I met Eryn Kubinski at Target when I was pregnant

What has Fit4Mom done for you (or meant to you)? As an older Mom (I'm 36) a lot of my friends have already been through the new mommy stage of life, so it is great to make new friends who have very small children. It was hard to watch everyone else have kids, but now that I have Violet I just adore our playdates and watching our village children grow.

What was your childhood ambition? To become a novelist or at least a professional book reader.

What does motherhood mean to you? It means learning how to love, and it is a challenge to love myself and treat myself better. I want to learn to live the way I want Violet to live and allow myself to create the fun and friendships for myself that I desire for my daughter.

What is your favorite exercise? Anything that makes one of our kids smile.

What is your proudest moment? Violet. I had so many miscarriages before I had Violet. I gave up my job and much of my sanity to bring her into my life. And I'm so relieved that it was worth it - that motherhood feels as good as I dreamed it would.

What are three of your favorite things (besides your family)? The piano, cats, and movies that make me cry.

If we asked your partner what they think your best qualities are, what would they say? My husband says I am supportive, creative and organized.

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: I will do anything to avoid cleaning, including using power tools and paying bills. I will happily do your taxes if you clean my bathroom.
