My Name Is Mom: Meet Abby

We all have a unique background and personality. Everyone has a different story, journey and title but we all have one thing in common—someone special calls us Mom. This series celebrates all moms, no matter how we got the title. Today’s featured mom is Abby—she was a mom of 1 at the time of this interview but gave birth to a baby girl last week!

If you had to write a bio without including your kids or any form of the word Mom, what would it say? I am a dance instructor for various dance schools in the Indianapolis area. I teach tap, jazz, ballet, and character to ages 2 to adults. All in all, I feel very blessed to be living the life I am. I have a wonderful family and wonderful students. Times do get rough, but it’s the love of dance that got me hooked, and it’s the love of dance that gets me through!

How did you get the name Mom? I think I have always wanted to have a family. I always tried to listen to others as well as give my opinion. I don’t think this is a role that you just pronounce, but fit into accordingly. It’s not like one day I snapped my fingers, and I immediately changed. The changes were slow and small at first. Some were much larger than others, but it just did not happen overnight.

What is your favorite thing about being a mom? What I love about being a mom the best is those random moments that will stick with you forever. Sharing your favorite book or song or getting that special, and always not as often as we’d like, hug. To me, it’s all the small things. Memories are memories whether they are poistive or negative.

I think my favorite memory is when we were all in a wedding. He was ring bearer, and I was a bridesmaid. He leaned over to my mother-in-law, and asked if I was a princess. Every time I tell that story, it melts my heart.

What is your biggest motherhood challenge? Well, I never did learn how to juggle! Preschool, special classes, playdates, my work schedule, babysitters, grocery shopping, cleaning, appointments….it never seems to end. And just when you get things figured, it all seems to change. So I would scheduling is one of the hardest things for me.

If you could say one thing to every new mother, what would it be? I know it’s cliche, but enjoy every minute of it, because you won’t ever get it back. Just try to be as loving and understanding as possible, as kids tend to learn from your actions. And ALL kids are different. Each one with his or her own mountain to climb and ideas. Oh, and watch lots of Supernanny and use her books often.
