Both, 3 girls and 3 boys

3. How many children call you mommy?

pretty equal between hubby and I

20. One thing you gave up now that you are a mom?
I guess the freedom to do as I please, it's tough though because I always wanted to be a Mama I don't feel like I actually gave up anything!!LOL

21. One thing you will not give up just because you are a mom?
Trying to dress stylish and look presentable for my hubby

22. The worst thing I have done as a mom?
I fell asleep with Mariah in my arms when she was about 3days old and dropped her!! Thankfully she was swaddled in thick blankets and my legs were out stretched so she kind of rolled down, but I felt terrible!!I'm sure there are a few more that I can't think of right now

23. The stupidest thing I've done as a mom?
Listening to what other people said when my first was a baby and even with my second, when I should have really just kept going with what my Mama intuition was telling me. They both would've most likely nursed longer and so much more!!

24. The best thing I have done as a mom?
I am able to forgive myself for my mistakes and learn from them and I try to set an example of how I want them to be as adults and I always say sorry when I am wrong or done wrong.

God bless, Penny
