Sumar was nominated by Abbigail Getty as her #MomCrush through our Nom-A-Mom program. Abbigail told us that Sumar is a passionate lactation consultant in the neonatal intensive care unit and registered nurse. Sumar made all the difference in learning how to successfully breastfeed her daughter by visiting her house several times to teach, and always showed up with fruit, muffins, flowers and a positive attitude. She was loving and patient as they worked through the process together.
Abbigail wrote that a quote by Proust sums up Sumar perfectly, "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.". Sumar, we applaud you for making many souls blossom in the NICU as well being a charming gardener to your sweet friend, Abbigail.
As our winner, Sumar has won $100 to treat herself to something nice, and a $100 donation in her name to the charity of her choice! Sumar has chosen the March of Dimes as her charity. The March of Dimes has such an amazing mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
We also sent Abbigail some Oilogic goodies for taking the time to recognize her #MomCrush, Sumar.
We asked Sumar a few questions to get to know her better...
OILOGIC: BOY MOM! Sumar has 3 sons, ages 15, 10 and 4 years.
SUMAR: I think my favorite thing about being a mom is teaching my boys about the world, traveling, sharing new experiences as a family. Also, they think I'm the most BEAUTIFUL woman they've ever seen. Warms my heart!
OILOGIC: Those boys sure do love their mamas!
SUMAR: Probably my shameless love of trendy pop music.
OILOGIC: We are loving the new song out by Justin Timberlake, "Can't Stop That Feeling" - Makes us want to have a dance party in our office!
SUMAR: Catch up on Pinterest boards, Etsy sales, and Facebook friends.
OILOGIC: Us too! Except not just at night, we also do it after breakfast, in the carpool line, and while watching reality TV :/
SUMAR: Definitely Susan Branch. And Abbigail and her girls would be invited and we would talk about the natural world and listen to her stories and learn from her spirit.
OILOGIC: Aaah so sweet! Sounds like a fun dinner party!
SUMAR: Passionate, Teacher, Curious.
OILOGIC: Yep, we just met and we can totally recognize those qualities in you.
SUMAR: I'm pretty familiar with superheroes and their powers (extensive education with 3 boys and husband in the house). I'm pretty sure I would choose the power of healing. I would heal the WORLD! All ailments, the climate, the hearts and minds of many.... You name it, I'll heal it."
OILOGIC: Awesome, love it! Have you ever considered running for President? We could use someone like you in Washington.
SUMAR: I enjoy gardening. I find it relaxing and gratifying to work with the Earth to make things grow and be beautiful (Abbigail and I have this in common).
Congratulations again, Sumar! Keep up the great work in the NICU, with your boys and as a friend. You are an inspiration to us!
