Have you been waiting to meet our first M.I.L.K of the month? Meet Cheryl: the beautiful mother of four boys (ages 2 and 14, and guardians of 12 and 14 year old children), and writer of the fabulous blog Crispy Not Crunchy.
Even though motherhood is hard, Cheryl says that, “I’m very blessed in that my husband thinks I’m the sexiest woman on the planet and tells me so, daily. A lot of my confidence comes from knowing he’s happy with me even though I’ve got some extra junk in the trunk. Of course a long hot shower, concealer and lipstick help too!”
Why is it that so few moms can admit that we need a little time for ourselves (and that motherhood is just plain tough?) “I think the most difficult aspect is the feeling and fear that we’re losing ourselves, but in actuality we’re just evolving. You cannot raise a child without the experience changing you, and that’s a good thing! It’s just difficult to let go of the old idea of who we are and embrace the new and improved version.”
What has been her favorite mommyhood moment this week? “My favorite mommy moment this week was one I wasn’t a part of (isn’t that awful?).Â My husband had all the boys outside playing in the back yard and I was sneaking photos from the back door. I loved taking those candid shots and watching them all have a fun and carefree moment”. So, how does Cheryl feel after using her exclusive Avon goodies and modeling as our gorgeous M.I.L.K for May? Just look at the photo for yourself, and see how radiant she is!
