Introducing our Young Moms Club spotlighted member: Megan Berkheimer!
Tell us about yourself and your family:
I’m a 24 year old mommy of two. My husband Marcus and I have been married for 3 1/2 years. My monsters are Damen (almost 4) and Rylee (8 months). We are Mesa, Arizona born and raised. We are tattooed, video game playing, outdoor loving homebodies.
When we first discovered I was pregnant, my first thought was joy. I had only been dating Marcus for three months but I knew I was in love with him. My immediate next thought was how we were going to tell our parents. I called my family first and they were surprised but excited. Marcuss parents didn’t take the news so well and didn’t talk to us for four months.
What kinds of things do you do to treat yourself, for fun and to stay relaxed?
For fun we go hiking, have drinks at home, or play xbox together.
What are your favorite things about being a mom?
My all time favorite thing of being a mom is watching my kids grow and change everyday. The happiness their smiles and full tummies bring me is indescribable. I can’t imagine my life any other way. :]
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? If you didn’t have any obstacles, what dream would you pursue?
If there were no obstacles, in five years we would be homeowners out in the country. We would be on our way to being completely self reliant. We would grow and prepare all of our own food.
To young girls that have just found out their going to become mothers I would say, it’s a long scary road that first nine months. There’s so much uncertainty and growing up crammed into a short space. No matter how crazy it is, you can do it. You can, and will be an amazing mother!
