The facebook page Parenting Multiples has now reached over 3,300 members. This is super exciting and means that we need an additional admin to the page. We are excited to announce that Kerry O'Hora Bergeman will join Bridget and I in making Parenting Multiples a fantastic community.
Below is a mini interview we did of this mama so that you could get to know her a little better.
Parenting Multiples: 1) Introduce yourself and where are you from?
Kerry: I grew up in Northern VA where most of my family still resides. In 1992
I moved to Ocean City MD and about ten years later to Salisbury- a town
just outside of Ocean City.
2) Tell us about
your multiples, how many, what age, etc.? Do you have other children
I currently have fraternal girls born in Dec of 2008 and am pregnant
with identical girls due this Dec. Life will be crazy in December with 4
birthdays and Christmas all very very close together!
3) Whats your favourite part of being a mom to multiples?
Watching their interaction. Watching them play, discover, explore and
become the best of friends. It is absolutely amazing and a blessing
even if hard at times I would never trade it!
4) Whats the most challenging part for you right now?
Right now the girls are at an age where they are challenging us with
defiance and independence. Being pregnant this is so challenging
because I don't have the energy or patience I need to guide them through
this phase in their childhood.
do you keep sane?
Talk to others. My girlfriends are so important to my sanity. Also
keeping the girls engaged helps us all. My husband is a huge support
and gives me the reprieves I need when I need them.
6) Who is the biggest support to you as your
raise your children?
Aside of my husband? My mom and sisters. They are always there for me and support me.
7) What do you enjoy most about being a
member of the Parenting Multiple's community?
The interaction with other moms going through what my family is going through. The good the bad and the ugly.
8) What are you
looking forward to as an admin to this page?
Getting to know the women more intimately, definitely.
Congratulations Kerry and welcome to the PM team. :)
