About my kids:
Madeline Addis Court was born last summer and has grown into a funny, clever and beautiful little girl - at the tender age of one! She hasn't developed her words yet so she uses her voice by screaming - especially at cute puppies that she wants to snuggle.
Maddie's middle name "Addis" is my Grandma's last name. I was very close to my Grandma who passed away when I was 6 weeks pregnant with Maddie. She had dementia at the age of 95 and when I whispered into her ear that I was pregnant, she replied "Oh dear, so am I". She was the first person to know and passed away the next day. I wish she had met Maddie because she would have been over the moon. I miss her but I know her constant laugh, clever wit and patience will live on through Maddie.
A constant state of chaos, awe and enchantment that I wouldn't trade for the world. I never knew how quiet and peaceful the world seems at 3 am. Or 4 am. Or 5:30 am.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?:
I love to catch up on my writing, stare at the 1 million photos of Maddie on my phone and cook. I love to try new recipes and test drive a few of my very own.
When are you at your yummiest?:
At the end of the day when we have had a full day of fun and adventure together and I'm ready to relax with a good storybook and a snuggle with my daughter. I love that there's a glass of wine just 20 minutes away but I am always trying to fit in one more squeeze or smooch.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?:
So many shoes, so little opportunity tisiso wear them anymore
What's currently in your purse?:
my wallet, lip gloss, cheerios, Sophie, baby bottle cap, one Baby Gap shoe, one key to my old apartment, 1 black book for taking notes. No pen, no kleenex.
What superhero power would you like to have?:
Isis. She really rocked that dress and knew how to accessorize
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?:
My husband collected a bunch of elephants from India and Asia. They are all over our house. So if you were trying to hide an elephant - anywhere in our house would be a safe bet. Authors disclaimer: I am not happy and do not support the elephant motif
Do you have a blog or website? :
