Today, I’d like to introduce you to Audrey McClelland. She is a fabulous mom of five and founder of the lifestyle blog Mom Generations. Audrey is also the co-founder of Getting Gorgeous, founded with fellow Mom Styler Vera Sweeney. Audrey is the true definition of Mom Style and it’s my pleasure to share her interview with you below.
Q: What’s one thing you wished someone had told you about this beautiful yet ever changing journey?
I wish someone had told me to really keep up with those photo albums. I never kept up with them and it’s something that I wish I had done. Now it’s almost too late to start, but I wish someone had just told me – every month, grab a few photos and pop them in albums. It’s something I would LOVE to have right now of all the kids throughout the infant/baby stages.
Q: Who is your favorite TV mom?
My FAVORITE TV mom is Kelly Ripa. She’s a hard worker. She’s a loving mom. She’s no nonsense. She seems to love what she does. She’s not a party girl/mom. She’s just someone who is totally cool and I love that she’s so into fitness, too!
Q: How old are your children?
1, 6, 7, 9 and 10
Q: What’s it like being a mom of five? What should other mamas know?
I love having 5 kids. Believe me, my life is busy and loud and chaotic, but that’s always what I craved. To be, it’s comforting to ALWAYS have something going on at home. There’s never a dull moment with these kids.
Q: What is your favorite activity to do with your children? Why?
We love to do DANCE PARTIES in the kitchen. We laugh. We dance. We sing. We have a BLAST. Fun family time.
Q: If your “Mom Style” was a song title, what would it be? (No, seriously I need a real song)

Q: Which blog post are you are most proud of.
Q: What’s your “Mom Style”? Cool & Calm, Spirited & Free, Savvy & Sophisticated or “Type A” All the Way
Spirited and Free
Q: As a mom, what do you know for sure?
I know that my kids know that I love them more than ANYTHING in the world. I tell them I love them about 100 times a day, always have. It’s something that I want them to always hold close to their hearts – my own heart.
Thanks for sharing your Mom Style with my audience Audrey, I read through your “I can’t believe mom did this” list and I think that I need to “up” my cool points and try a few things or two. What an awesome family you have. And to think that your princess has four older brothers as her protectors. What a blessing!
