Welcome to Feature Friday! Today is a good day to feature this awesome mommy blogger because 13 is one of her lucky numbers! I always enjoy reading her blog because she is real. She doesn’t shy away from the hard parts or the amazing parts of parenting. She is all about having your tribe and supporting and empowering each other along the way. Who doesn’t love that?!?!
I’m Nina, from Chaosinmommyhood.com. I’m a full-time stay at home and blogger. My husband is an IT Analyst and we have two adventurous little toddler boys named Mikey and Tucker. I blog about our adventures, motherhood, and favorite products and things I’ve found along the way.
- What made you want to start blogging?
I originally started blogging when we moved out of state as a way to keep my friends and family up to date on my boys. I discovered I loved sharing my family and thoughts and my blog has morphed into so much more now.
- What is your favorite book/movie of all time and why did it speak to you so much?
My favorite book and movie is most definitely the Time Travelers Wife. I love looking at things from different perspectives and the idea that love conquers all stays deep in my soul.
- What did you want to do growing up and are you doing it now?
When I was really little I wanted to be Fred Flintstone because I thought he had a cool car…needless to say that dream never came true. I always knew I wanted to be a mother and now as a full-time stay at home mom and blogger, I believe I am exactly where I am supposed to be at this point in my life.
- What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done and would you do it again?
The craziest thing I’ve ever done would be zip lining in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Although I still consider the van ride up the mountain to be far more terrifying than the zip lining itself. I’d totally do it again for the spectacular views.
- Do you consider yourself a feminist?
I consider myself more of a humanist.
- Why or why not?
I’m a firm believer that there is only one race, the human race, and we’d be a lot better off all supporting one another for who we are rather than hating each other for differences.
- What was the best phase of your life?
I think I am currently in the best phase of my life. Although motherhood has brought many more hardships and challenges than I expected, my boys bring me more joy and love than I ever felt possible as well.
- What was the worst phase of your life?
I wouldn’t say the worst…but definitely the hardest phase of my life was towards the end of my pregnancy with my first son. My father in law passed away after a long battle with cancer and our family went through an intense amount of trials and tribulations after.
