Apple Mom of Orange County Monday: Maria

Apple Mom of Orange County Monday: Maria


This Monday we would like to introduce Maria Covillion to you, an Orange County mom.  A mom of 2 from Cornwall, and a common core crusader.  Maria was ever so kind to introduce us to her life, and she is a busy mother.

What does a typical day look like for you?  I work part time as an office manager.  Mornings can get crazy between getting kids and myself ready before 9 am.  I work until 2 and then come home to my daughter (who wants to play with me) and my dog (who expects a long game of frisbee toss.)  After I get my son from school, we start homework (made more difficult since Common Core hit our district).  Then I cook dinner, clean up the kitchen, and get my daughter ready for bed a bit later.  I spend my time after my daughter is in bed on Facebook: learning more about how we can make Common Core go away forever, and trying to encourage others to join the fight.  On my days off from the office, I catch up on housework.  I also work part time in a restaurant on the weekends, and last year I became a certified dog trainer.

What is your favorite memory of being a mom so far?  The milestones my kids reach, also seeing their happiness when we do something they really love, or go somewhere fun.

What is a funny mom moment you have had? There are too many to list.  Recently, hearing what comes out of my daughter’s mouth is quite amusing.
