Tell us about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do?

My name is Elena. I’m 30 years old. I’m a daughter, sister, mother and friend. I work for a company that manages digital properties (websites and social media) for celebrities and production companies.

How many kids do you have?

I have 5 amazing, beautiful children. We just kicked off “birthday season” which is when 4 of them have birthdays in a 2 month span and I can’t remember how old any of them are when people ask me.

Most embarrassing moment?

I do laundry ALL THE TIME. I’m literally in a constant state of washing, drying, folding and putting away laundry. So one day when I was cleaning out kid #4’s backpack after school I found a sandwich baggie with a pair of my panties in it. Enclosed was a note saying “these were stuck to the lining of kid #4’s jacket”. Static cling is not my friend.

If you could trade places with anyone in the world for a day, who would it be?

Beyonce. Because, duh.

What is your favorite four letter word?

It’s a tie between f*ck and cake.
