January MOM of the Month Sara Evans

From Instructor Erin Hanna, "I have known Sara since our first kids were babies 5 years ago! Sara is now on baby #3-- a girl after 2 boys! She is always in a great mood even though she is a busy supermom, and really pushes herself in class-- she is a great inspiration to our group and a great friend!"

Let's hear more about Sara!

1. Who are the members of your family?

My husband, Russell, who is my high school sweetheart. We will be celebrating our 10-year wedding anniversary in May! We have 2 sons, Ethan (5) and Elliot (2), and are expecting our third child, Ellen Kate, this April.

2. What is or was your career?

I am mostly a stay-at-home mom these days. I work every Friday and one weekend a month as a clinical dietitian at St. Joseph's Hospital. I was a full-time clinical dietitian before we started our family.

3. How long have you been a member of Stroller Strides of Savannah and what has it done for you?

I joined Stroller Strides in August of 2013, when Ethan started preschool and Elliot was 5 months old. It's hard to believe it's been over 2 years already! It has been a great social network and has kept me motivated to stay active. I love being able to work out with my kids in tow instead of trying to figure out childcare for them when I want to exercise!

4. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?

It's the little things. We can have a challenging day and then one of the boys will give me a hug or a kiss or say something so sweet or funny and it just makes my day. Parenting is so hard but also so rewarding.

5. Favorite website(s)?

Goodreads, The Minimalist Mom, Amazon

6. List three current obsessions.

Reading, listening to MY music when I can squeeze it in - I'm an indie rock fan, and the t.v. show Downton Abbey.

7. What is your child's/children's favorite thing about you or favorite thing that you do?

My 5-year-old, Ethan, says he likes that I play board games with him, especially Monopoly.

8. Any tips for other moms out there?

It gets easier! Children go through challenging phases but there's always light at the end of the tunnel.
