Meet Lydia Crabtree, our September Mom of the Month!
When Lydia showed up to her first class on a cold, rainy, April day and walked in the door with 2 kids in a double stroller, Mary (3), Jameson (2) and wearing her third, Lucy (6 months) my mouth immediately dropped and I was inspired. She looked at me and said "we've been getting ready for class since last night", The challenges she must face just getting out the door on a daily basis but still manages to come to class a few times a week rain or shine. It's truly admirable. She is always making little jokes in class and bringing laughs to the group. Originally from IL, she is making her permanent home here in Milwaukee and we are so happy she found us. We love having you, Lydia!
What is your fave thing about Stroller Strides? My favorite thing about stroller strides is getting out of the house and doing something good for myself, the mom community, and my kids being able to play with other kids.
What is your favorite exercise at Stroller Strides? Any arm workout
What is your favorite part about being a mom? My favorite thing, as cliché as it sounds, is everything. I love seeing everything new through their eyes, seeing them play and develop relationships with their siblings, and they’re my best friends. I love just hanging with them.
Favorite thing to do when kids are napping? If I can get them to nap and if it happens at the same time, I like to read or catch up on trashy TV. If one is awake though, I do love having some quality one on one time with that kiddo.
What is your favorite thing to do as a family? Mostly just playing in the yard or watching a movie and snuggling.
What is something about you that someone may not know?In another life I’d like to be a comedian. It may never happen, but this crazy life sure gives me a lot of material if it ever does!
What is your favorite healthy and unhealthy food? My favorite healthy food is cucumbers and pickles. Unhealthy is chips. All the chips!
What is your favorite color? Green
What is your favorite song or artist? I’m liking Andy Grammer these days. When I’m not listening to RaffiJ
What TV shows are you currently watching? Lots of garbage, but I do love any sort of mystery thriller type of show
