It’s time for another How Does She Do It! We are thrilled to introduce you to Christina Hiebert from Winnipeg.
Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?
Urban Mama. I live in the West End community of Winnipeg. I love the strong sense of community and being centrally located.
Tell us about your children
I have a four year old daughter. I love our crazy adventures and the special quiet time we have with sipping a cup of tea together and snuggling while reading a book. She is a really cool kid who is independent, smart, thoughtful, and overall an amazing light in my life.
Tell us about your typical weekday
I wake up at 5 AM and start work at 7:30 AM. In addition to my 40 hour work week, I write a monthly community newspaper column, volunteer as Director of Communications for a community centre, as well as volunteer as Secretary for a Parent Advisory Committee. A portion of some of my evenings and weekends is spent working on projects and attending meetings and community based events.
Do you have help?
My husband is awesome and very hands on and my in-laws and mom are a big help too.
Who cooks dinner?
My husband usually starts (and finishes) dinner as he arrives home from work before me. Cooking and baking is a passion of mine and a way that I unwind so on days that we have more time, I make it a point to prepare some of my favourite dishes.
How often do you buy something for just you?
Fairly often. I love loose leaf tea and Starbucks. I usually buy a new clothing item or accessory every month and I enjoy taking leisure classes.
Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?
I try to attend a weekly yoga class and I enjoy going for long walks with my dogs. My dogs need exercise and being out with them brings me so much joy. It is a win-win to exercise with them.
What clothing lines/stores do you like to buy for your children?
Nothing specific. I usually shop sales and second hand shops – there are a lot of unique finds in second hand shops if you take the time to dig.

Three things in my purse right now …
