“On so many levels, I am different. My priorities and my dreams are all focused now on giving my kids the best. By that I mean being the best mom I can be, giving them a great start in the world, opening up opportunities, everything I do now, my first thought is ‘how will this affect my kids.’” – Alison on how motherhood has changed her.
“I want both [my children] to have a healthy body image. And these early years are crucial for setting healthy habits both physically and mentally. I think the confidence I give them goes a long way, but also helping them understand the basics of nutrition can help them feel in control of their body. They don’t get sweets as a reward ever, I don’t want them to associate food in that way.” – Alison on instilling a foundation in healthy habits for her kids.
“Megan does this little growling thing. It’s so adorable, this deep growl coming out of her little body. And when you growl back at her, she totally knows you’re copying her and she laughs, and loves it.” – Alison on her then 10-month-old munchkin.
