What is your favorite family tradition?
Growing up I couldn't wait to have my own family, start our own traditions, and carry on some of my family favorites. I look forward to going to the Irvine Regional Park every year in the fall for the pumpkins and activities. Kids and pumpkins together, what's better than that?!
Tell us about your favorite family story.
We have Disneyland annual passes, and are lucky enough to go often. Our baby girl went to Disneyland for the first time at just a month old. She's a trooper and makes everything easy, so luckily, every trip to Disneyland is our new favorite time and favorite family story!
We love to see our 3yr old son's excitement over the characters walking around, and the rides he is able to enjoy. Disneyland was one of our favorite things to do as a couple before we had kids, and now that we have them, it's such a different experience going but so fun in all new ways!

What's your number one tip for new parents?
I am surprised at how exhausting it is! 😂🙈 I never planned on being a stay at home mom, but I am, and I've never been more tired in my life!
Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)
There are hilarious moments of every day raising a smart 3yr old and his almost 1yr old sister. Recently I've started becoming aware of the things I say, and how they're going to be repeated back to me!
A few days ago my 3yr old came up while I was having a conversation with my husband and not paying attention to what he was trying to tell me when he said "Mom! You look in my eyes right here, are you listening now Mom?!" 😬 I love that he's able to help me be more aware of my actions and words now that he's more vocal and aware of emotions.
