If we met for the first time, how would you introduce yourself?
Kendra, a married mother of two beautiful boys (Tyler and Liam) and author of the Mom blog Mommy In Demand.
I find myself completely relating to your blog name and I would love to hear how you came up with it! Why did you choose “Mommy, In Demand”?
It was actually a very simple process. I wanted a name that reflected my life in a few words and Mommy, In Demand fit perfectly into that. I’m always the most in demand person I know around here; kids needing me for everything; Husband always wanting my help (or my cooking skills) too; the animals wouldn’t survive without me; and over the years I’ve become the counselor for all my friends too…so life can become very demanding very quickly.
I think most moms can relate–No one can do it like Mommy, and so Mommy does it all! We would love it if you could share a post or two that you love and want our readers to see. What’s the inspiration behind your faves?
I honestly don’t have a specific one. But some of my favorites are:
1. Don’t Wake Baby Because it shows just how crazy my life can get,
2. Totally Buggin Out This one is pretty much a summery of me. I’m a nut and don’t always have the brightest ideas…, and
3. Crafty Kendra: Clouding Around I love this post because it shows my creative side and just how much fun I do have with my kids, even though I vent about them from time to time.
Can you walk us through your blog journey? Why did you start, where are you now, and were do you see yourself and your blog down the road?
I wanted my blog to essentially be my online diary. I’ve always told the crazy stories about my children and their antics to my close friends and family and they found them to be hysterical so I thought, why not share them with everyone. It also puts those stories in written form to tell my children someday.
Our final, and favorite, question is next. Will you please tell us what makes you “More Than Mommy”? What are the things you love that make you marvelous?
Well, I’m an avid reader, an organization freak, a reality TV junkie, and I love food. I’ve done performing arts since I was a child (which is something I haven’t talked about on the blog. lol) but I can act and sing, and I’m notorious for playing April Fools jokes on people. I’m also really girly and love makeup, jewelry, shoes, bags and anything with rhinestones!
