RRP: How would you define motherhood?

DC: Motherhood is amazing. It is a life-changing journey I am excited to be a part of as a mom. It is about patience, nurturing, teaching, and loving. It is challenging, but I would not change the experience for anything.

RRP: Your daughter will be going to first-grade next year. What are you doing to prepare for her transition?

DC: She is so excited to be going to the 1st grade. I am helping her with new sight words every week, reading books every night, practicing writing complete sentences along with different punctuations, and working on adding and subtraction. I love that she is eager to learn and has a great memory.

RRP: What was the best advice on motherhood you have ever received?

DC: Listen and pay attention to your child. I ensure to spend time with my daughter so she can be comfortable coming to me about anything. I think it helps strengthen our relationship as I allow her to be open with me through communication. I believe that nurturing that now throughout her younger years will be beneficial as she gets older.

RRP: You’re a business manager for your mother’s business, Simply Southern, in Montgomery. How do you juggle work with the responsibilities of motherhood?

DC: I plan and organize what I should do the following week. I type in my notes on my phone and also put notes on my refrigerator as a reminder. I try to have a balance between the two.

RRP: What is your favorite go-to dinner recipe when you are short on time?

DC: My go-to dinner recipe is chicken tetrazzini, which consists of spaghetti pasta, grilled chicken, cream of chicken soup, onions, bell peppers, green onions, sour cream, heavy cream, and shredded cheese. It is Kailey’s favorite. It gets the job done if I’ve had a long, exhausting day.

RRP: What is one chore in your home that you would delegate and why?

DC: It would be laundry. It is the worst chore because you sort, wash, dry, and fold. I find it to be a very tedious task. I work every day, so once I go home, I want to relax. Many times, laundry is the last thing I want to do when I’m exhausted from a long day.

RRP: Are there similarities between yourself as a child and your daughter?

DC: I see myself in her when I was her age because of her personality. She is a girly girl and loves to play dress-up in my heels and make-up. I hope that as she grows older, we can enjoy doing mother-daughter girly things together, allowing it to bring us closer.

RRP: Being in modern mom life, what are hobbies you enjoy?

DC: I enjoy traveling, reading, going to Target, and exercising.

RRP: Your mother had a tremendous influence on your life. Does your approach to raising your daughter differ from hers?

DC: The only difference is my mother is more lenient. She will say something, then go back on her word. I am in the middle between lenient and stern. She communicated with me the way I do with my daughter.

RRP: What is one thing you consider your parenting compass and why?

DC: My Christian beliefs are my parental compass. They help guide me to be a better parent by helping me be a better person. I believe that God created us all and that he demonstrates his love for us through his Son, Jesus. As a parent, I strive to love my child and teach her to love others. I want her to have a healthy and balanced mindset.

RRP: What is your biggest mom accomplishment besides your beautiful daughter?

DC: My daughter tells me I am the best mom in the world with a big smile on her face. It’s a good feeling to know that you’re doing something right when you receive confirmation from your children, especially at a young age.
