We want to hear how you do it, Moms! Are you a mom in Edmonton, a career mom, a stay-at-home mom, an entrepreneur mom, something somewhere in between? Contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be profiled!
Tell us about you, your children and where you live
My name is Ashley and I live in Edmonton. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 children, Logan age 4 and Quinn aged 1.
Do you have help? (incl childcare, housework, personal assistant)
Of course I have help! Who does it all on their own? (and if they say they do they’re lying) I have a babysitter that comes 1-2 times a week so I can get some work done without children bothering me, I have an assistant that helps me with all things Kula Klips and I have a cleaning lady!
Shopping, it’s my favourite thing to do!
Extracurricular activities for you?
Shopping, 4 workouts a week and other than that my kids keep me pretty darn busy!
Extracurricular activities for your babe/children?
4 year old is in preschool and soccer and both kids take swimming lessons.
What does a typical family day look like to you (Saturday/Sunday)?
Swimming lessons, farmers market, shopping, naps, and date night with my hubby!
Who cooks dinner?
I do mostly but my husband is a fantastic cook so I am happy when he does!
How does the grocery shopping get done, by whom, with the kids, and do you use coupons?
We usually go together as a family on Sundays, I use coupons but I’m not coupon crazy, I have to thank Frugal Edmonton Mama for keeping me up to date on sales and coupons. I am the type of person that will go to 4 different stores in a week to get sale items like diapers, kleenex, laundry soap etc.
How often do you buy something for yourself?
I used to a lot, now I buy mostly for my kids, they cost me A LOT of money but I have so much fun dressing them! My hubby says my daughter is my dolly
Do you exercise and if so, how/when do you fit the time in to do that?
I do exercise! I say no excuses everyone can find time to do it! Sundays is Yoga, Monday I run on the treadmill, and Wednesday and Thursday I take classes at the gym.
Pretty in Pink, I wanted to marry Blaine!
Favourite beverage special coffee, cocktail?
I love Mocha Coconut Frappes from Starbucks!
Favourite pair of shoes?
I have so many! I love my Uggs in the Winter, my Toms in the summer.
‘Cannot leave home without it’ item?
My cell phone, it is always in my pocket!
