December Mom of the Month - Maritza

Congratulations to our very first Mom of the Month, Martiza Chavez!

Maritza has energetic 2 year old twins, Robert and Miranda, and they have been attending Pearland Stroller Strides for the past few months. They come as often as they can and work hard! Martiza was the first mom to reach her attendance challenge goal for the holidays. We are so happy that you joined Our Village!

"Maritza is such a pleasure to have in class. Her positive attitude and outgoing nature are such a happy addition to Fit4Mom Pearland. It's been amazing seeing her make deep connections with other Moms and watching her kids (especially Robert!) become true stroller striders!" - Katie Fenn, Instructor

"Maritza works hard and is a wonderful mother to her kids. She is honest, kind, selfless and her patience is unbelievable. She goes above and beyond to lend a helping hand to anyone and I am grateful to have her as a friend." - Lindsay Moralez

Tell us about you and your family.

My fiancé Robert and I have been together since sophomore year . I was in college when we found out I was pregnant and pregnant with TWINS. I had my twins at 21 years old . My kids were almost a year old when we decided to come to Texas for 3 months for my fiancé's job in the Pipeline. It's been about a year and a couple of months here in Pearland , Tx and we decided this will be our home now .

How did you hear about Fit4Mom Pearland and what made you start going?

I heard about fit4mom through luck! I took my kids to the park early one Saturday to kill time since my fiancé was working. I was at the playground when SS was ending when I started making conversation with a mother and somehow we got into the subject of fit4mom and I was so excited I took the first chance I could get and joined!

What is your favorite thing about motherhood?

It would be watching my kids grow and learn new things everyday .

What are some of your favorite things to do without kids?

My favorite things would be running on my treadmill every chance I could get and shopping.

What TV show are you currently watching or book are you reading?

I'm currently watching reruns of The Walking Dead.

What are some of your favorite Moms Night Outs and play groups?

I haven't attended a moms night out just yet because my fiancé has been working late but I will definitely go once I get the chance! I can't pick a favorite with play dates because I've enjoyed all of them! My twins have a blast each time.

What advice do you have for other moms?

You have to take care of yourself in order to take care of your children. As long as you're trying your best at being a mother that's all that matters!
