ESTABLISHING YOURSELF (a few details that help somemothers know what they have in common with you).

I am  45 years old.

I am married.

I have 2 children. 6 and 9 Girls.

I  work part-time. 

I am middle middle. 

I live urban. 

I own.

I completed high school and a certificate in Graphic Design from New England School of Art & Design, Boston.

I am straight.

I am of Italian decent and American born.



  1. The most significant aspect of my upbringing. I was not hand-held or babied too much, I had to work out most problems by myself.
  2. My best advice to mothers about to enter the stage of child rearing that I just went through. Lead by example! And be honest.
  3. Something that concerns me about my children. Bull-headed.
  4. My absolute worst mothering moment (so far). Losing it from time to time and looking like the devil when I do.
  5. What annoys me most about other mothers. The need to make everyone believe their children are superstars.
  6. I am happiest when I create and run free with my girls.
  7. I am saddest when I cannot solve a problem.
  8. My biggest fear. Death and illness.
  9. I am ashamed of not brushing my teeth every night.
  10. Something I need to forgive. My husband for not being more aggressive when it comes to making money.
  11. Something I wish I could say to someone. Mom, I have always loved you and wanted to be with you more.
  12. Something I have never told anyone. I tell my husband everything.
  13. Something I am trying to change about myself. I am trying to play bigger.
  14. My biggest accomplishment. Designing the Outdoor Advertising for Nike in Miami.
  15. I wish this time now could last forever.
  16. Something my relationship with my mother has taught me about parenting. Be happy, and love people.
  17. Something my relationship with my father has taught me about parenting. Be firm and let your children know “They can do it.”
  18. How I would describe my faith life. I believe big time.
  19. Something I hope will be different for me by this time next year. I will have established and grown my creative business. Oh and that I will be writing more.
  20. Something important about my story that hasn’t been captured by the questions above. I love to inspire people. I also love to push their buttons in order to take them out of their comfort zone.
  21. BONUS: A question you would like to see added to this list that readers can respond to in the comments.  Would you like to play in my sandbox?
