Hey Mama, what’s your name and where are you from?
A: Sandy Ballard from Kansas
How many kids do you have?
A: I have two boys — Graham is 4 and Robinson is 1. Also expecting baby #3 due in early September.
What has been your favorite part about Mother’s Day?
A: My favorite part about Mother’s Day is celebrating my mom and all of the hard work and sacrifices she made for us growing up. Now as a mother I can look back and appreciate it. I also love watching my husband teach our boys how to celebrate the strong women in their lives.
How has your style changed during pregnancy?
A: My style has changed because now instead of hiding my tummy I’m showing it off and I love it. I love finding new ways to style the bump and it helps remind me that even when I’m not pregnant I need to love my body!
What’s your biggest Mommy fashion tip?
A: To always go with your gut and wear whatever makes you happy. Don’t worry about what others will think just do you!
What is your favorite PinkBlush piece and why?
A: Definitely my PinkBlush robe. I wore it in the hospital after both of my boys were born so it has huge sentimental value. I will for sure be ordering a new one for this upcoming hospital stay. They’re so soft and I wear them all the time around the house.
What is your funniest Mom moment?
A: My funniest mom moment would have to be one night at dinner, I just finished serving everyone Mac and cheese. The boys were so excited and started scarfing it down, my oldest got one noodle up his nose while piling it into his mouth. We all laughed so hard we cried!
Do you have a must have Mom essential?
A: My mom must have is a good baby carrier. I wore both boys all the time right after birth and it was a huge life saver.
What is your proudest Mom moment?
A: My proudest mom moment has been watching my two boys form a relationship that is just amazing to watch. When they play together or even just a quick hug it’s so sweet to see their bond forming.
What is the best advice your Mother gave you?
A: To always focus on the positive and not let the hard days get you down. There will be days when you feel like you can’t control things and that’s ok, just let go of the plan for the day and focus on surviving!!
What is your best advice to all the Mama’s out there?
A: Do what works for you! Every parenting relationship is so different, there will be articles and friends that swear by one sleep method and just as many on the opposite side. Research everything and in the end make the decision based on what works for YOU and your family!
Best quote about motherhood, or a quote from yourself about motherhood.
A: “Everything has changed and yet, I’m more me than I’ve ever been.”
