Here we go, Round 1 Intro:
1. What is the name of your blog? AtypicalDisease
2. What is it about? It has changed and evolved throughout the years. The sole purpose of my blog is to spread Moyamoya Awareness. Mainly, I want others to know that despite this disease, I am still trying to live my life to the fullest. It doesn’t take away from the many blessings that I am given each day and moment. I want to spread hope because spreading awareness isn’t enough [and] build confidence in others and to motivate them into embracing the life they were given with joy.
I was told that I was going to die so many times…
And often times, I mention this in my blog (it could get cryptic sometimes, lol) … not because I want recognition for strength (I’ve broken down so often) or to have others look on my life with sorrow. Understand that, at my most broken moments, my faith has saved me through His grace. Everything I have, can’t ever be taken away by a disease. It’s hard and I’m SO flawed, but my family and friends make up for this. My faith most of all has reminded me how much I can be thankful for.
3. How many children do you have? 3 little girls.
4. Did your blog start before or after your first child? I started it privately before they were born, and began to blog even more the twins were born prematurely. It helped me cope during our almost 9 month stay in the NICU.
5. Do your children attribute to the content of your blog? Absolutely.
6. How? They inspire me to be a better person. I want to create memories and invest in interest that would help them in the future. They are never far and often times I realized that the purity and love these kids project is what the world needs more of. My passion and hope are fueled by them. My twins were expected to die so many times, but they fought. Now, look at them. You would never know that they were even in that predicament. Kids keep moving forward. All they know is to progress and grow, until we teach them different. I’m learning that from them.
Round 2: Would you Rather?
We’re interviewing mom blogger Ari Davis. In this section, we will give a pop quiz with the theme, Would You Rather?
7. Would you rather eat spinach or fold laundry? Oh, gosh… I actually love Spinach tongue emoticon I hate laundry, but on a slow and relaxing day… I love doing that with my daughters. Laundry it is.
8. What’s a mommy tip you’ve learned along the way? I’ve learned to keep a schedule, but the most helpful tip I’ve learned is to take it in strides. Sometimes you can’t do it all, and that’s okay.
9. What activities does your family like to do best? We love going to the park. It’s a great time for us to play the guitar outdoors and it leaves the girls to have a larger dancing stage. They can also play their instruments as loud as they would like.
10. Indoors or outdoors? Outdoors.
Round 3: Inspirations:
Now we’re breaking down to the heart of mom blogger Ari Davis. Here are the things that inspires her.
11. What inspires you? Everything! There are miracles and wonders everywhere.
12. Would you let your oldest wear a princess dress, sunup to sundown, for a week straight? Yes and they have.
13. Do you bake? Kind of. If it’s sweets, straight out of the box for me and the kiddos. If it’s things like chicken… I love to experiment.
14. Do you play toys? Yes, always. Kids have some of the coolest toys now a days.
15. How do you live your life to the fullest? By remembering to be thankful for everything, everyone, and everyday that I am blessed with. I think it would be harder for me to live or try to live my life to the fullest without first being joyful and thankful.
