Stephanie Cox: There was a Young Mother

A photo illustration of Stephanie Cox and her children based off the nursery rhyme “There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe,” but changed to “There Was a Young Mother Who Lived in Boot.” As a military spouse and mother to eight children, she uses her master’s degree in Math Education to teach and play while husband, Maj. Clay Cox, deploys. Stephanie is also an avid runner and proudly drives the 15-pax family van, fondly dubbed the “mamma beluga.” (U.S. Air Force Photo Illustration by Karen Petitt).
