Sharon DeVellis came to work at the YMC as the Yummy Mummy Club Coordinator after winning Canada's Yummiest Mummy Contest, a contest based on creativity and not on parenting skills (*whew* wipe beads of sweat from brow).

She is now the Senior Writer and maintains the voice of YMC which sounds very similar to the voice in her head. Being crazy is finally paying off.

About my kids: 
I have two kids – Son No. 1 and Son No. 2. Son No. 1 is super smart and I can’t answer 89% of his questions. He’s funny, creative and loves to read. He has taught me more than I will ever teach him. Son No. 2 is strong-willed and stubborn, he’s also vibrant, energetic, artistic and my 150% kid. When he hugs me, he does a flying leap off the stairs into my arms and wraps his whole body around me. One hug from him is worth every tantrum he’s ever thrown. The reference to No. 1 and No. 2 is due to birth order and not who I like best.
Parenting is...: 
Wilkepedia says it’s the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. I say it’s giving birth to your heart and wearing it on the outside of your body for the rest of your life. Also, just as messy.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
Answer questionnaires
When are you at your yummiest?: 
When I’m speed skating. There’s something about it that makes me feel so alive, even though I completely suck. I can’t wait to see how I’ll feel when I’m good at it.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
What The What?
What's currently in your purse?: 
About 23 receipts, 7 from the LCBO. Two Kinder Egg surprises, 5 lip glosses (it’s an addiction), 4 pens, and my wallet.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
To freeze time. Then maybe my house would be clean. Oh, who am I kidding. It would still be messy but I’d probably be caught up on my reading.
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
In a trunk.
