How many children do you have?

Name:

Lavelle Thomas

What are their ages?

What do you love most about being a mom?

Watching him grow and develop. Seeing his personality develop and watching him learn new skills every day is the best thing in the world.

What do you like the least?

I miss sleeping.

What advice would you give yourself on those hard days, knowing what you know now?

Some days it’s going to be tough and that’s okay, a bad day doesn’t make you a bad mom. Take a breather and take in the moment. How you handle the bad times and the bad days reflects and teaches your kid how they’ll handle them as they grow up too.

What is your favorite mom saying (figure of speech, most used quote etc)?

There’s no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

Share one of your fondest memories after becoming a mom:

There are so many. I think my fondest will always be after he was born and the immediate connection I felt when he looked into my eyes and cuddled up to my chest.

Who is your momspiration?

I know so many amazing mothers out there, but my sister Whitney Dayley constantly wows me with everything. She has three growing boys and somehow manages to make it to each of their extra curricular activities, keep a clean house, and can have family time. She also makes homemade meals just about every night for her family. Yet she’s never too busy to take a phone call and talk to me or give advice. She is such a giving individual and someone I really look up to as a mom.

Lastly, would you like to share a message for the individual(s) that nominated you?

My sister, Whitney Dayley, nominated me. I wouldn’t be the mother I am today without you and your help and surety. I love you whit.
