HOW DO YOU COMBINE WORK AND FAMILY?

I’m still trying to figure this out. I worked in TV News for a decade, most recently as an on-air reporter. I quit to be home more with hopes of doing freelance writing. I haven’t quite found the time yet.

HOW HAS PARENTING CHANGED YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL?

I have a different definition of success.

HOW HAS PARENTING AFFECTED YOUR RELATIONSHIP?

We have much less time alone.

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS AS A PARENT AND WHAT ARE YOUR WEAKNESSES?

I put my children first.

I tend to obsess about silly things.

WHAT ARE YOUR PARTNER’S STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES?

He is fun!

He has zero patience.

WHO ELSE PROVIDES CHILDCARE FOR YOUR CHILDREN?

Grandparents and aunts.

WHAT IS YOUR WORST PARENTING MOMENT?

The day my son wrote curse words on a school bus. (He spelled them correctly.)

WHAT IS YOUR BEST PARENTING MOMENT?

I can’t pinpoint one moment, but I would say a best parenting moment is when my children feel good about themselves.
