While brainstorming about what to write blogs about, I wanted to find a way for my readers to get to know some of the awesome people who I know. The best way I could come up with was an interview series.
Meet my friend Jessica. I’ve known Jessica since we were in high school. We lost touch after graduation, but we were able to reconnect on Facebook last year. So without further ado – get to know Jessica.
Name: Jessica Traver
Location: Staatsburg, NY
Hails from: Red Hook, NY
Relationship Status: Married
Children: Giselle 4 years old
Occupation: Stay at Home Mom
What is the most challenging part of your job? trying to keep a 4 year old from not being bored
We’ve known each other since high school. How do you think you’ve changed since then? Well I am not the wild child I once was, becoming a mother has mellowed me
You’re a stay-at-home Mom. How do you think this will impact your daughter? I think being home with her shows her a surplus amount of love and support and will give us a greater bond.
What do you think is the biggest challenge of being a stay-at-home? Wondering if my parenting skills are up to par, and hoping that I will instill the best in my daughter. There is no one to pat you on the back, since I feel most husbands feel its not a job.
Your daughter Giselle just turned 4. How do you feel about her growing up and going to school next year? Giselle- Its going to be hard to let her leave the nest, but since she is enrolled in pre school now, I think that will ease my pain. I feel that she is developing a great head on her shoulders, she knows whats right and wrong. I feel she will become even more independent, and I feel that will be great as I do not want her to rely on Mommy and Daddy for everything.
Do you have plans to have another baby? yes one day
What’s guaranteed to make you laugh? Well hands down my brother and my husband. They are always guaranteed to have some story about work or what has happened in their daily lives. Bad luck follows them I guess
I know you watch General Hospital. Who is your favorite character and why? Sonny– hes rugged and tough but yet he loves his family to death
Are you on Twitter? Yes
What’s your favorite meal to cook? Stuffed Shells
Are you happy that you still live near where we grew up or do you wish you lived in a bigger city? No I am content. I think living in the country is great when you have kids.
What is your favorite vacation destination? Florida since I lived there for 2 years
What is your favorite book? The Notebook
Tell me an interesting fact about yourself: I am OCD
What other questions do you have for Jessica?
