Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

A Nervous Wreck!

I think kids can sense our emotions because the day before I was to go in for an interview and orientation, I was a nervous wreck!  I guess I have a little bit of an excuse since it has been ten years since I have had either.  I was going out of my mind thinking of the questions that they may ask or the what-if situations.  My children though were super caring.  My daughter was a snuggle bug all day long.  Her and her brother were helpful with most anything I asked of them!  This is not to say that they aren’t normally helpful, however, they really aren’t as willing as they were this day.  Normally, I have to coerce them a little more to be helpful.

I think that they just wanted to do something to help because they knew that I was concerned or worried.  I try to not let my children know when I am anxious because I want them to have a care-free childhood.  It made me very thankful to have them supporting me.  It let me know that I had done something right because I had taught them how to be helpful to others and it also let me know how smart they are and how they can read body language and pick up on how others are feeling.  Regardless of how things turn out from the interview, I still have a great job and I have a wonderful family that loves and supports me!

Is there a time when your children were extra helpful to you when you may have not been feeling yourself?  If so, please share!
