Mom Blogger Monday: Angelique Armada
Angelique Armada better known as "Jay" loves to take action! The hard-working mommy of Lincoln Andre; 1, is a mompreneur, Dance Fitness Instructor and most recently, a blogger for The Adventures of Lincoln & the hardworking Mama.
To say Jay keeps busy is an understatement! She owns Beastin Beauties Fit Studio, an invitations/graphics store, Angelique Creations, and works part-time in two different capacities-- one as a P.E. teacher and another as a billing administrative assistant for a genetics lab company.
"But my most favorite job is being a mom," says Jay. "I am everything I said I was never going to be as a mom. I said I will never be that one mom who posts their child everyday-- and now that's me. I said I'll never let having kids derail me from doing what I want-- and now whatever it is, isn't as important as being with my boy. My favorite role is being a mom and I love every minute of it. "
She also launched LaLa Mom Shop in 2018 for her son Lincoln. The shop sells a variety of mom-themed tops and customized party invitations (available by visiting her blog).
And how does she do it all, you ask? Besides having a supportive husband of 11 years, Jay explains it in one simple blog post titled Doing it all: What it's really like to own multiple businesses, have part-time jobs, be a wife and be a breastfeeding mama
WOW, MOM! You rock, Jay. Thanks for the momspiration!
