Welcome back to the Saturday Mama Spotlight! I’m so excited to share this week’s Mama with you!
The Saturday Mama Spotlight podcast shares inspiration, encouragement, and helpful tips for women. Each episode features a different mother who shares her story by being open about her struggles and strengths and how she meets her needs as a woman outside her role as wife or mother. By sharing our stories we offer inspiration, but more importantly, we offer an opportunity for connection with each other.
Joining me today is Melanie Walls. Melanie is a 45 year old mother of two. She has a 7 and 4 year old and is married to a firefighter who works shift work. Melanie schedules her work days around her husband’s shift work. They are almost always solo parenting, so it takes a lot of scheduling and communication on their part.
Melanie enjoys activities like swimming, walking, reading, and yoga and tries to fit them into her life with kids, though, she admits he isn’t always successful.
Melanie has shared that she finds her job very fulfilling and rewarding and that it fills her heart with joy and pride.
She says that parenting is hard work for her, but she’s always striving to do better, and be better. Her cup feels fulfilled when she spends good, quality time laughing and having fun with her kids.
