Do you ever imagine yourself as a guest on a talk show, and think, “Oooh, if they asked me that question, I would totally know the perfect answer!” Oh wait, you don’t do that? Cool. Well, I may have once or twice. And I’m pretty sure that this is exactly how an interview with me would go:
So, you say you’re excited to be a new blogger for Skinny Mom. What are you excited to tell your readers about?
Well, Famous Interviewer, I’m so glad you asked. I am not only excited to be a part of the Skinny Mom community, but I’m honored that they want me. Like (I hope I’m not assuming here), a lot of other moms, I struggle to balance health, happiness, career, motherhood, and a sense of self. I can’t wait to tell my readers about my journey.
What are you hoping to get out of this whole blogging experience?
I’m really hoping that I will be able to learn as much from my readers as they learn from me. I hope they’ll read my stuff and think, “Oh, Thank GOD I’m not the only one going through this.” Or maybe they’ll just think, “Hmm, I have a few minutes to spare. Let me check in with Hot-Mess Mama and see what craziness she’s dealing with today.” I want to make people laugh. I want to let moms know that they’re not alone. I want to be relatable.
Let’s talk about your name. Where exactly did” Hot-Mess Mama” come from?
Well, you see, I am a hot-mess at all times. I don’t even try to be. It just comes naturally. I’m not exactly sure why I’m that way, but I’m pretty sure it’s because I gave birth to two boys within a year and a half. I know nothing about boys. I was, like, the girliest girl ever. I spend my mornings working with teenagers in an alternative high school, my afternoons trying to be less hot-mess, more cool-mom and learn everything there is to know about Superheroes, and my evenings either teaching other people how to get fit, or working on getting my now three-year-old baby fat off. (Whaaaat? it’s not called “baby fat” after three years, just “fat”?? Boooooo.) So, um, yeah… anyway, I guess that’s where the name came from.
Coffee or tea?
Usually tea, and usually decaf. Caffeine does weird things to me. Unless it’s a small french vanilla iced coffee with double milk and two Splenda from Dunkin Donuts, obvi.
What’s your guilty pleasure that you’re most embarrassed to admit?
Oh boy, I had a feeling you would ask this one. Hmmm, I really don’t have any guilty pleasures. I mean, I spend most of my time either cleaning my house or cooking fantastic meals that everyone loves. Haha, ok, you got me. That’s a total lie. I’d have to say that my guilty pleasure is watching Jersey Shore. No, scratch that, I like The Bachelorette more. Actually, my guiltiest pleasure is jamming out to Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” every time it comes on. Every. Single. Time. OMG… I just divulged WAY too much information to strangers. I will go hang my head in shame now.
So there you have it… a snapshot into the head of Skinny Mom’s newest contributor. I’m psyched to be here, and I hope I didn’t scare you away. Now tell me… What’s YOUR guiltiest pleasure? By whom would you like to be interviewed? (And don’t leave me hanging here, I mean, I’m relatable, RIGHT????)
