Mommy Profile: KC
KC was a music teacher at the Music School for the Rhode Island Philharmonic when she became a mommy. She and her husband used to enjoy exploring new restaurants, watching movies, traveling, reading, playing tennis, and exercising.
Now, KC lives with her husband and 2-year-old daughter in Ann Arbor. She chose to be a stay-at-home mom so she can spend as much time with her daughter as she can before her daughter grows up too fast!
KC's daughter goes to daycare twice a week. Otherwise, their days are filled with playing, playdates, and outings to the library, park, & store. Her daughter naps while KC tries to get some sleep, watch TV, or clean the house. KC prepares dinner while her daughter plays nearby. Then, it's time for dinner, bath, and bedtime. Afterwards, KC and her husband try to watch movies or catch up on phone calls and e-mail.
To make life easier for KC, she tries to keep her daughter in a routine, so that things are more predictable. They try to save money by being green in any way they can and also put money aside into savings funds.
To teach her daughter about her culture, KC has been incorporating Chinese into her conversations with her daughter as much as possible and is constantly teaching her new words. They also read simple Chinese books and listen to Chinese children's CDs. Both sets of grandparents also try to speak to her daughter in Chinese whenever possible.
For fun, KC enjoys spending time with her family, whether it's just playing together after dinner, taking walks outdoors, or spending weekends going out to eat, going to the store, library, & park, or hanging out with friends and family.
What does KC do just for herself? She recently joined the Dexter Community Orchestra in January of 2008. She rehearses once a week and performs multiple concerts each year. Every so often, she also tries to get a massage or go out to lunch with friends.
