Molly and her son, Liam, smile for the camera on Molly's 30th birthday last year. She says she enjoys being a mom, but has ideas and passions outside of motherhood, as well. Courtesy Molly Smith
She has physical goals: Molly and her husband, Brady, are pictured here after completing a zombie obstacle race in 2012. Courtesy Molly Smith
She's an accomplished athlete; she played sports in college and loves to bike. She's pictured here with her younger sister, Ashley, mountain biking in Colorado. Courtesy Molly Smith
She wants to travel. Smith traveled to Europe and Africa with her college choir. Here she is petting a lion cub at an animal reserve outside of Cape Town, South Africa, in 2005. She'd like to go to Australia to visit her pen pal of 15 years, too. Courtesy Molly Smith
Molly says she loves her son, and he's the most important person in her life. But she also wants to maintain her own identity. Courtesy Molly Smith
