PopYum is very excited to have Brooke as our third PopYum Superstar joining us! We got the wonderful chance to talk with Brooke to learn more about her amazing journey as a new mom.
PopYum: How did you feel the day you became a mom for the first time?
Brooke: Best day ever. We had a long road in growing our family through adoption but our son was worth every single bit of it. We knew when we met him that we’d love him forever.
PopYum: What tips would you give to a first time parent that you wish you knew when you had your first baby?
Brooke: My biggest tip is to go with your gut. You’ll hear so many opinions but God gave you that child for a reason and mama knows best. Also — bring those babies into your lifestyle, don’t stop living when you become a parent. Take them traveling, go out to eat, they will get used to whatever you do!
PopYum: What do you think is the most challenging part of being a mom?
Brooke: Putting away the tiny clothes they’re growing out of can be tough even though it’s so fun watching them learn and grow.
PopYum: What’s your favorite thing about PopYum?
Brooke: The convenience, hands down.
PopYum: What is your favorite part about becoming a mom?
Brooke: I absolutely love how my son knows I’m mama. He looks for me, he knows he’s safe with me, he loves me so much. I’ve never known a love like that.
PopYum: Tell us something about you! What do you like to do for fun?
Brooke: Pushing my stroller for long walks through Target with a coffee in my hand. It’s so simple but I waited so long to become a mom that all the little things I dreamt about while I was waiting means so much to me now.
PopYum: How do you find ‘me-time’ while raising your kids?
Brooke: Joining a gym with childcare was the best decision! Don’t underestimate how wonderful it is to have an hour to focus on yourself every day.
We want to know some of your thoughts and experiences! Are they similar to Brooke’s? Anyone out there adopt as well? Do you have anything you’d like to share with the rest of PopYum nation? Comment below! We’d love to hear!
