Interview with Brittany
Guest Post by: Classy with a Twist
I had the chance to interview Brittany from Loco Parenthood with Mama-B. This is a must read interview, because she gives advice that new mother's need to hear. Her incredible blog offer lessons that every mother should be aware of.

1).    Classy with a Twist: Can you tell me about yourself?
        Brittany: I am a senior at Catawba College with a major in Communication Arts. I have a three year old daughter named Malaysia. I love to read, write, and go to different parks with Laye.

2).    Classy with a Twist:  What is a typical day in your life like?
        Brittany: Wow..I have to get up early to get my daughter ready for school and myself. After I take her to school, I go to school across the street. After classes I either go to my internship or to work. I have to cook dinner every night, and then give Malaysia a bath. When I finally get her settled down for the night I have a chance to do my homework. After we go to bed we get up the next morning to start the same routine all over agian.

3).    Classy with a Twist:  Why did you name your blog Loco Parenthood with Mama-B?
        Brittany: Actually my mom helped me come up with the name. I wanted new readers to get a grasp of what my blog was about so thats why I put parenthood in the title. Loco came from the part that most of my post are about crazy things that happen while raising a toddler. Then Mama-b is a name that I started calling myself after I had Laye.

4).    Classy with a Twist:  Why did you choose your blog topic on parenthood?
        Brittany: I chose my topic on parenthood because it is a huge part of my life, but it is something that also brings a lot of joy in my life. I wanted readers to hear the stories that you can not read in a parenting book, but stories that make you look forward to having children.
5).    Classy with a Twist:  How do you handle it when you can’t think of an idea to write about?
        Brittany: Actually this is a funny confession, but when I started this class and decided on my topic for my blog. I went ahead and start a list of topics I would write every week. Kind of dorky I know, but with a crazy life like mine I don't have time to think of a new topic every week.

6).    Classy with a Twist: What is the best advice you have for new moms?
        Brittany: The best advice I have for new moms is to just enjoy all the little things that happen with your child. Even the smallest moments in life can leave an impact on your heart.

7).    Classy with a Twist:  What is the craziest thing you heard your daughter say?
        Brittany: This is funny, but she likes to tell every one that her dad and I  " be drinking a beer." It is so embarrassing but so funny at the same time.

8).    Classy with a Twist:  Is it a good idea to let your child name their pet and why?
        Brittany: I think its a good idea to let your child name their own pet, no matter what the name might be. It shows your childs true personality come out. Then in the future you will have something to pick on them about if they named for instance a cat named scobby-doo.

9).    Classy with a Twist: What is a creative activity you do with your daughter?
        Brittany: Malaysia and I put together a photo album together of places we have visited, and of the family. Laye and myself really enjoy it and it gives us a chance to spend time alone together.

10). Classy with a Twist: What’s the best part about motherhood?
      Brittany: One of the best parts of motherhood is how a child can change your mood in one second. Just looking at you without telling them to and they say they love you. Or when you're at church crying during a song they wipe away your tears, and tell you to stop crying. Even as soon as you wake up all you see is them smiling at you. These are the best parts of motherhood for me; its nothing big but it is the most special part of my life.

11). Classy with a Twist: What comes to your mind when you hear the word Laye?
      Brittany: ONE CRAZY LITTLE GIRL. Honestly she is the blessing in my life, a little angel sent from God, and the child who brings a smile to my face every day.

  1. Great guest post! I like that it gave a lot of insight into Brittany's personal life. Being a college student is challenging enough and I can imagine how demanding it must be to try to balance that with motherhood. Also, I love your daughter's name..very pretty :)
