Wild Women Wednesday is a monthly interview with amazing military mama bloggers. The goal is to connect more with the blogosphere and get to know more of my ‘coworkers’. Really build *my* community.
A mom that I met at our last duty station in New Mexico. She has two beautiful daughters and is married to an active duty Airman; currently stationed in England. Formerly a CDC Tech, she now stays home with her girls and keeps the house running.
What do you do when a baby just stares at you in public? Like, doesn’t even blink, just maintains intense, aggressive eye contact with their dumb baby face What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO IN THIS SITUATION?
Lol dumb baby face. I smile until they do. They’re just interested.
What’s your favorite post on www.emmmmerz.com , why?
I love your recipes! Helps me think of new ideas to feed my family.
Speaking as a sitcom narrator; introduce yourself and your family:
Here’s the Currys!
This is Jessica, the mom. If momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy. She enjoys cooking and spending time with her family.
This is Philip, the dad. He’s a military man in charge of too many dumb people. Works long hours and enjoys drinking beer.
This is Alison, the first born. She’s 4 and will definitely let you know it. She’s the boss of us all. She enjoys whining and not listening!
And finally, this is Lauren, the baby. She is two years old and constantly up mom’s butt and her favorite words are “no” and “hold me”.
How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?
In the next year, I would like to improve how I interact with my husband. He is rarely at home because of work. And when he is home, he’s drinking because he’s had a rough day. I need to be more receptive of his problems. He also needs to be receptive of my own problems. Since he’s at work all day, I’m the one holding down the fort with the girls and all the cooking and chores and errands and activities.
Would you encourage other people to make their own blog?
I think blogging is good to help you see your own story down in words, like a diary. However, I personally don’t have time to sit and write. And honestly, I don’t know how any mom does!
What is something you’ve learned about yourself since having kids?
That I do not like messes. Though I enjoy letting them make them, having a mess just stresses me out. I feel like they can’t play properly when they’re playing in a big mess. But I know that they play best when they make a mess. Weird?
Is there any advice you’d like to pass along to new military spouses?
Just remember that everybody in the military is going through the same thing you are. Rank does not matter. We are all people going through it TOGETHER. This military family will be your family throughout the military member’s career. Treat them all with respect and don’t judge. We all have a story.
Where do you stand on homeopathic and holistic medicine?
I believe that oils, teething necklaces, chiropractors, etc… Do work. I know they can’t hurt to try. So they do better than doing nothing. I also believe that sometimes you need medicine from a doctor, such as antibiotics to get better. As I get older, I am trying more and more home remedies for common illnesses. Coconut oil fixes everything ?
How do we know each other?
We know each other from a previous duty station. PlayNation play group moms. And military family
If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?
I think I would sleep. Alone. In the quiet. With no children lol. Being a mom is tiring and never ending.
