UrbanMomHeatherMeet our featured UrbanMom Heather! Mother to Leo, 3.5 years old  and Isabel,
15 months old

1) What is the best part about being a mom?
When my kids show me spontaneous bouts of affection.

2) What is your favourite activity to do with your children?
We love spending time together outside. We’re often at the playground, pool or biking around our neighbourhood.

3) What is your favourite television show?
While I’m a little ashamed to admit it, I love the Bachelor. It is the perfect escape from reality because it’s so far from my daily mom life.

4) How do you find some “Mommy Time”? (able to find a break from the kids and take time for yourself?
My favourite activity is playing soccer. I look to it not only for exercise; it’s also my time away and something just for me.

5) Do you work? If so, where and what do you do?
I’m working as a part-time realtor assistant, but my goal is to become an RN. I like my current job as my boss is also a mom and extremely understanding.

6) Any advice for balancing work and being a mom?
I find the relationships I’ve made with other moms, help me stay sane. The day-to -day monotony can be trying, but it’s nice to know other moms maybe be going through the same thing. Having a very hands-on and supportive husband is amazing, and I couldn’t do it without him! And finally, wine time is my new favourite time of the day!
