Life of wife N Mom

Here is her exclusive interview post with me.
Tiffany: How long have you been blogging? 
Sami:
a little less than 1 year. March 2011 will be 1 year for blogging.
Tiffany: What started you blogging?
 
Sami:
I actually started blogging while my husband was away at school for the Army to pass the time...At first I thought it would be a few posts here and their but it has been an every day thing if I am able to.
Tiffany: What is your blog about? 

Sami:
A little bit of everything. Life, military Life, Family, Love, Photography and more. The New Year starts new things for the blog.  Many more adventures. I am going to look at doing giveaways,
Reviews, and other things as well.
Tiffany: What is the best deal you have ever gotten?

Sami:
The best deal i had ever gotten i would have to say was when I went to get my car. We got it way below retail price and didnt have to make a down payment. I think that is the best deal. :)
Tiffany: What is a typical day for you?

Sami:
Typical Day for me starts by getting hubby up and out to work by 4:30 every morning. I get my morning started by a shower and getting dressed. I  throw a load of clothes in the laundry and it is usually ready for the dryer by 8:15. I get the girls up for and ready for school about 7:30.  Take the  girls to school by 8:30.
    After I drop them off to school it is normally off to work in a Day Care  till 3. Pick  the girls up by 3:45pm. Housework, help the girls with homework,  hubby gets home about 6 and we get dinner going and after dinner, I usually try and blog.. When i get a chance as well as school.  Depending on the day I usually have a photo shoot or so to add into the schedule.  I usually do 1-2 a week on a good week.
    Now the new year brings new challenges for the schedule. I have to add home schooling my 12 year old son into the mix. Which should not be to much of a difference, Just have to add it into the schedule.
Tiffany: What do you like to do for your "Me time"?

Sami:
If I am able to catch it. I usually spend my about me time blogging or creating things. That seems to be about my only  about me time I get.
Tiffany: Do you have regular Me Time or do you have to snag it whenever you get a chance?
 
Sami
I never get regular about me time.. But When I can I enjoy it.
Tiffany: What has been the toughest parenting issue you've faced?
Sami:
When my husband deployed for the 1st time. I was still new to being a mom and it was difficult with 2 kids at the time. my oldest was 3 and  the other was  a little over a year old. It was difficult trying to explain to them that daddy had a job to do that took him away for a year at a time. It is still the toughest job that I have to face. The kids and I have been through 3 deployments and everyone it gets more and more difficult explaining why things happen the way they do especially now to my 5 year old.
Tiffany: What is your best advice to new moms?

Sami:
Learn as you go. Let the children teach you as you go. You and  them both have alot to learn. It is a learning experience and a good one. With your first child you will make mistakes and learn from them with the other children. Never punish a child for the mistakes you have made raising them. Use it as a teaching tool.
Tiffany: For fun - What celebrity do you have a crush on?

Sami:
I don't really have a crush on a celebrity but I think my favorite would have to be Edward Cullen ( Robert Pattinson ) I love Twilight.
