Incredible Woman #4 - Jyl Pattee. Monday's questions

Kara: "Tell us about yourself (i.e. age, hobbies, talents, family, etc.). Why are you an Incredible Woman?"

Jyl: "I'm a mom to 2 boys, wife to 1 funny guy, and dog owner to one yellow lab named Parley Noelle. I'm half from Arizona and half from Utah and somewhere in the middle of both, I lived in Argentina, Ecuador, Germany, and Texas. I used to speak a lot of Spanish. I love to travel. I've been to 32 countries and US 43 states and am in a competition with my husband to see who can reach all 50 first. I also love to read; play the piano; hang with friends, especially if we're getting pedicures; plan and host parties; and used to be a writer in a not to distant former life.

I don't know that I'm Incredible. I don't have elastic arms and legs or anything, but I have be known to be resilient and I try and not let my limitations stop me. Two of my top values are abundance thinking and inclusion."

Kara: "You’re the mom of 2 really cute boys. Tell us about them. What do you do to spend time with them? What is a typical day like for you?"

Jyl: "Our day starts at 7:30 when we get up and get the kids ready for school. My husband takes them in the morning and I pick them up in the afternoon. I love the drive home from school, because it allows me to have uninterrupted time with them when I can learn about their day. My favorite thing to do with my kids is go on play dates. We love Discovery Gateway and Thanksgiving Point and Kangaroo Zoo. We are partial to Draper Park and in the winter, love the Carl's Jr. Playland down the road."

My niece went to Ecuador - and she is blond. At almost every flight change (she was an exchange student) everyone kept asking her if she was on the right flight!! She did say it was really strange to be the only white person on the plane though. But, she had the best time and would really like to go back. Some of the stories she told and the pictures she took.... wow!!
I loved the Donny and Marie song showing up unexpectedly!! that is funny!! And it's great that you go on play dates with your boys.
something we should all do more of.....
