Celebrity Pregnancy Interview – Lou Lou Girls!
July 15, 2015
Get ready for the hardest laugh of your day, because we invited Jessica from the Lou Lou Girls blog to Owlet! And boy, does she have some HILARIOUS tales to tell of her experiences with pregnancy and motherhood!
What is the funniest thing that your other children misunderstood about your pregnancy?
“My oldest, Max, was really curious when I got pregnant with his little sister, Gracie. I was really sick for the first 3 1/2 months, and every time I went to the bathroom to throw up, he would come in and ask if the baby was coming out. Through out my pregnancy, he always asked me to open my mouth so he could talk to the baby, or try to see it. He would also try to lift my shirt up in public to show people my belly, and prove that there was a baby in there. He also tried to lift his grandma’s shirt once, just to make sure she didn’t have a baby in her belly. Needless to say, we had a lot of talks about not trying to remove other peoples’ clothes.”
What are some cute ways your toddler(s) or children pronounce (or mispronounce) words?
“Every morning Sophie comes in our room and begs for Dinner, she wants “pupperoni and cheese.” She’s not a fan of cereal! I also remember my middle daughter waking up almost every night asking for food. She wanted a “Cwispy slice of pizza,” or “Chicken and Brocowi.” Her midnight snack cravings were always very descriptive.”
What’s the silliest or most ridiculous thing you’ve cried over during pregnancy?
“I cry A LOT when I’m in my first trimester. Everything makes me cry. Probably the most embarrassing was when I started crying because my food tasted disgusting. Everything was making me sick and I had been craving carne asada, but when my hubby brought it to me I couldn’t eat it, so I started sobbing.”
Are there any unexpected physical or personality traits that your children inherited from either you or your husband, maybe that you didn’t realize you had? Or anything funny they do or say that they learned from you, unintentionally?
“My middle daughter, Gracie, inherited my dramatic gene. I’m pretty sure she didn’t learn it from me, since, hopefully I’ve grown out of it, but she hates having itchy clothes. Apparently I was the same way when I was little. She’ll roll around on the ground if it does’t feel JUST RIGHT. It could be sweat pants, for heaven’s sake, and the girl will only be able to feel the seam on her bum. She wears only dresses, because they’re soft and cozy. My mom says it’s payback…”
Is there anything you wish someone would have told you about pregnancy or motherhood but didn’t?
“People tried,but no one can explain to you how much you will love your children. Sometimes it feels like my heart is going to burst out of my chest! And, the love never stops. Each kid has a special place in my heart. I would do anything for them.”
What are some lessons from teaching dance, cheer, and theater that help you with parenting your children?
“If anything, I’m a more sympathetic teacher now, because I’m a mom. It’s easier for me to understand that some kids are just emotional, and they can’t help it. I also am really aware of the fact that I need to be fair with each child, making sure they each have an equal amount of solos, or stage time, because I don’t want any parents hunting me down after the recitals! haha!”
Is there anything else you’d like to share about your pregnancy, children, or motherhood? Funny stories, experiences, or advice?
“My only advice would be to watch what you say and do around your kids! One time at dinner, when Max was about 4, he proudly exclaimed, “What the HELL is this? It’s delicious!” We couldn’t conceal our laughter, it was too cute and funny. I learned I had to cut back on the bad words after that…”
