Favorite time of day with my kids: Snuggling and reading before a nap or bedtime

Biggest fear: Losing someone I love, or not being here for my husband and kids

Favorite part of getting older: Knowing what is really important to me and not worrying about the rest.

Most Proud "Mom" Moment: When my children spontaneously show their love for each other with hugs and "I love you"s.

Favorite thing to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon: Relaxing at the beach, napping and making cookies with my family.

Funniest thing my kids have said or done lately: Heath looked up at the sliver of light shining from the crescent moon and said, "Oh, no! The moon is broken!"

Favorite holiday: Christmas

Favorite midnight snack: Ice Cream

My Philosophy of Parenting: Be generous with your time, your hugs, your kisses, your love...!

Best decision I've ever made: Marrying Rob.

If money were no object: I'd travel the world with my family.

Five things in my purse: Ponytail holders, granola bar, debit card, pen and notepad.

Childhood tradition I'm continuing with my kids: Tucking them in with a bedtime rhyme.

Best advice I've ever given: It doesn't matter where everyone sleeps, or how they go to sleep, as long as everyone sleeps!

One true thing my mom taught me: If you have clean hair and a clean kitchen, it's a good day!

Biggest parenting challenge: Not getting overwhelmed by all the things on my "To Do List" that aren't getting done.

Least favorite household chore: Laundry! There are too many steps involved -- sorting, washing, drying, folding, putting away -- and there's always another load waiting.

Favorite family dinner: Chicken Parmesean

The most important thing I can teach my children: That they are loved unconditionally and to follow their hearts.

The biggest lesson I've learned from my kids: Stop and enjoy the moment!
