Mom Blogger Monday: Shaina Freeman-Gonzalez

Gone with the Twins

As a young girl, Shaina Freeman-Gonzalez was a child actor on Gullah Gullah Island, a children’s television series on Nickolodeon.

“For four years I got to hang out with my favorite TV stars all day! I even got to get slimed live,” she recalls.

Today, this #LABossMom who has lived in half a dozen states, manages a career as a customer experience manager for a reputable men’s shoe brand and raises 4-year old twin girls (Sophie & Savannah) with her husband in El Segundo.

What we love about Shaina is that as fun and city chic as she is, she also loves DIY stuff like crocheting, quilting and scrapbooking. And she has a blog (Gone with the Twins / where she posts many things that keep us wanting to revisit her page over and over, like this most inspiring piece about what she gained when she decluttered her life or this fab guide on best hairstyles for a cruise or her entire blog section about breastfeeding twins.

We think you’re very cool, Mama! Can we hang out and have mommy dates with you?

What inspired you to become a blogger?

I spent a lot of time on twin mothers message boards and Facebook groups answering questions and sharing information. My husband encouraged me to start a blog so I could write everything down and share the links as I go.

What is your proudest Mommy Blogger Moment?

I was really proud of myself when I started getting messages from other moms about how my blog posts have helped them, encouraged them, or made them laugh.

What’s your favorite place to take the kids in LA?

Most definitely Disneyland!

What’s your favorite LA hang out without the kids?

I like the local restaurant/bars in El Segundo: Sausal, Brewport are two favorites!
