Holly has partnered with Quaker's Life Cereal to create Book of Life, a sweepstakes that includes the grand-prize giveaway of a book filled with words of wisdom from famous and everyday moms. Mica Vanterpool Stanford, whose family is featured in Book of Life: Making Your Best Days Happen and in the campaign's commercials, talks with the Peetes about her experiences and wisdom as a mother of four.
After almost 20 years with her husband, Reuben, Mica is the proud mother of four children ranging in age from 7 months to 13 years old. So what's her secret to getting through the day? Commitment to family, Mica says. "Every day is a journey," she says. "My dad used to say to me, 'Life is like a roller coaster.' Some days are great; some days are challenging. On the days that are challenging, you know that tomorrow is going to be a better day. And on the days that are spectacular? You just hope it stays that way for as long as possible."
Also, the Peetes and Mica share some words of wisdom:
Holly: "Each day is a gift. Every day you wake up is a different opportunity to grab life by the horns."
Rodney: "Tomorrow is not promised to you. Make the most of today."
Mica: "Be your best, and make the most of every day. Don't leave any stone unturned."
