We had the pleasure of asking some questions to Holly Conway, a local radio personality. If you want to hear Holly in action, she can be heard on weekday mornings from 5:30am-9am on 94.5 Virgin Radio with her comrades Jonny and Nira. 

Where is your hometown?

Born and raised in North Vancouver

Describe your family

We’re a family of 5: my husband Jon, my son Luke (almost 6), Dustin (almost 3) and our 17 year old cat Chin Chin.

What’s the most challenging part of being a parent?

How long can the list be?? LOL. Honestly I find a lot of parts of being a parent very challenging. I’d say trying to be present and enjoying the kids while they’re young, (because as every old person tells me it goes so fast), while at the same time working full time/adulting and trying to get them to eat something green once a week is the constant struggle for me. Also making lunches, ugh.

What do you love most about being a parent?

The list is also long with this one. My Dad died when I was 8 so one of the best parts of being a parent for me is getting to re-experience childhood without all the sadness.  We’re making lots of new happy memories as we go.

What is the best advice you ever received as a parent?

My mom always says never punish your kids with something that makes parenting more work for you.  Example: taking TV away, that’s just more entertaining for parents to do.

What is something about you we would find surprising?

I lived in a church for 16 years. We were the caretakers at a Presbyterian church in North Vancouver and we lived in an apartment in the basement. Not the typical childhood house but we had our own gymnasium, full stage and parking lot to play in – score!

What is your go-to family-friendly Lower Mainland activity? 

We’re outside a lot. Rain or shine, we love the mountains and beaches on the North Shore. We always have a big stick collection going at the front door.

Does juggling kids and career make you run on a 1% of the power charge?

Reading Time: 5 minutes
Life as a mom can be hectic, especially if you are juggling a career in addition to taking care of your kids. I personally think moms are very similar to cell phones because we’re always ‘on’ and play a critical role when it comes to communicating with loved ones and managing every aspect of our family’s life.

However, it’s important to remember that cell phone batteries run low and need some time to power up. They’re no good to us if we don’t allow them to recharge. Even the most expensive, glamorous, high-tech smartphones (aka, the moms who seem like they have everything together) need to be turned off and connected to a power source so the battery doesn’t die.
