“To the world you are a Mother, but to your family are you the world.” Tots2Tweens is so happy to feature an awesome mom every Monday. This week, we introduce you to Marissa Bryce.
Hometown: Nashville, TN
Home base “must-do’s”: Centennial Park (includes “The Parthenon”) Historic Downtown Franklin, great for walking and shopping with lots of great places to eat! I would recommend Frothy Monkey for coffee, Merridee’s Breadbasket for breakfast and Puckett’s Grocery for lunch or dinner. Concert or game, there is always a concert or sports game happening somewhere and there is no other atmosphere like that of Nashville
Meet the Family: I’m married to Jonathan, we just had our 7th anniversary. We have 3 boys, Seth (5), David (3) and Jacob (1). Our only girls are the dog, Lexi (3 yr old Goldendoodle), and the cat, Spangle (14 yr old Siamese).
Passions and Interests: Homeschooling, dancing, painting, health.
Most controversial thing about you: I think it depends on the group I’m in. I’m a homeschooling, network market, stay at home, Christian mom. I’ve been in situations where any and all of those cause issues.
Biggest Pet Peeve: Loud, rude, chewing of food.
One Major Goal You’re Striving For: Bringing in enough income to double husband’s salary, paying for mortgage and sports activities for the kids. Part of that dream is having a team around me that I can encourage, pour into and help reach their own goals.
Best Advice You’ve Ever Received: You can’t just be a mom and a wife, you have to take care of yourself as well.
Occupation: Stay at home mom to 3 boys (5 and under), itWorks Distributor (plant-based, health and wellness products), hobby artist.
What are you reading? Chasing the Dream by Mark Batterson, it is reminding me to have more faith, dream bigger. If I dream small enough that I can do it on my own God doesn’t get any glory out of it but if I dream big, so big that only God’s intervention can make it happen, God can move in extraordinary ways.
Favorite Kid-Friendly Restaurant: Chic-fil-a. The atmosphere and food are both incredible. I feel like I can relax and not be panicked if my kids are a little loud or rambunctious. We love Kid’s Night because you get a free kid’s meal with every adult meal purchased.
GoTo Family Dinner: Spaghetti & Meatballs
What types of activities do you like to do as a family? Walks through the neighborhood, visit the zoo, parks and the Adventure Science Center near downtown, play video games, watch movies.
What do you do when you have some time away from the kids? Read a book, go to the movies, get a massage. 🙂
