Could you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi there! My name is Kelly, and I'm a proud mom of two amazing children, aged 5 and almost 3. As an older parent, I had the opportunity to live my life fully before dedicating this chapter to my kids. I have a flexible job that keeps me busy but allows me to be there for all the important moments.
What do you enjoy most about being a mom?
The thing I love most about being a mom is the purpose it gives me every day. Watching my kids grow and learn is incredibly fulfilling. They have taught me the meaning of unconditional love and have helped me improve my time management skills and establish healthy boundaries.
Let's be honest, motherhood has its challenges. What aspect of motherhood pushes you to become the best version of yourself?
For me, it's independence. While I'm grateful for the support I receive from my family, I constantly challenge myself to do as much as I can on my own. This way, I can be more independent and be there for my kids as much as possible without missing out on anything.
Becoming a mom brings about physical, mental, and emotional changes. How has motherhood shaped your present self?As a mom, some days can be overwhelming. How do you reset and find moments of bliss amidst the chaos?
Motherhood has taught me to be less codependent on others. I have learned to establish boundaries and find my own way of doing things. I've also become more confident in making decisions for myself and rely less on the opinions of others.
As a mom, some days can be overwhelming. How do you reset and find moments of bliss amidst the chaos?
When I feel overwhelmed, I make it a point to write a list of all items I need to do. I take a soothing bath almost every night which helps me relax both mentally and physically. Additionally, I make time for myself by going golfing once a week to find peace in nature. If I can squeeze it in, I also enjoy going on hikes and practicing pilates and yoga. These activities serve as self-care for me.
What's your favorite family adventure spot in San Diego?
We absolutely love going to the beach for our family adventures. Building sandcastles and digging holes is surprisingly one of my favorite things to do with the kids. The theme parks in the area are also a big hit with us!
