Happy New Year 2018! For our first Piñata Mama blog of the year, we are featuring Chentil D, who is a stay-at-home mom to her beautiful little girl Melina. Learn more about how Chentil tries to sneak in some 'me time' for herself while she keeps a fun, active routine with her family. Learn more about Chentil below!
Name: Chentil DeVeau
City: Merritt Island, FL
Occupation: Stay-at-home mom
# Kids: 1
Green Piñata: What would you do if you had a day all to yourself, with no kids?
Chentil: Well it's been awhile haha but I would do some pampering. A nice massage followed by a mani and pedi.
Green Piñata: What's the one thing that helps you stay sane as a parent of little ones?
Chentil: Taking time for myself when she's in bed. My favorites are soaking in the bath or eating cookies and watching my favorite show on Netflix.
Green Piñata: Tell us a little bit about Melina. What are some of their likes, dislikes, and interests?
Chentil: Melina is 18 months the greatest blessing and an adventurous little girl. She loves to be on the go and explore. She loves talking walks to the park and traversing the playground. She's not a big fan of car rides so I don't see many road trips in the near future. Meli loves animals. We have 2 dogs and she gives them hugs, feeds them and loves to help take them on walks.
Green Piñata: What does a typical day look like for your family?
Chentil: Our days are usually pretty basic and routine. Wake up, eat breakfast (I've started getting very involved in this since she's shown more interest in helping), taking the dogs outside to play, reading, playing different games, nap, lunch, more play then cooking dinner and waiting for daddy to get home.
Green Piñata: What is yours, and your little one's, favorite part about Green Piñata?
Chentil: We do the subscription and love it! We usually rotate toys in our house so she doesn't get to bored but then I still have to find a way to store them. With Green piñata she gets to try new toys and I send them back when we're done. If she really likes them I can always buy them but there's no commitment. There's also no money wasted on a toy she won't play with like the lot I just had to donate.
Green Piñata: How do you make the most of your Green Piñata experience with Melina?
Chentil: I get as excited about our box as she does. I love to see her smile and it's like she gets a present when it comes. We sit down together and unpack the toys then play with them together.
