Mom to: Oliver Maize and Francis
Currently working on: Well Rounded (wellroundedny.com)
What is the best part about motherhood? The hugs, kisses and the constant amazement I'm overwhelmed with as I watch my son grow into a true individual.
What is the most challenging part of motherhood? Not being able to put my sons in a protective bubble.
How do you balance your work with Well Rounded and your family? I learned from Jess (my business partner) that separating work time and family time is pretty clutch in not losing your mind. Sure there are going to be times when I'm answering work Slack when I'm with my family but for the most part trying to multitask two jobs that need my full attention never serves anyone.
Where is your happy place? Yoga class! Also, the beach when I'm not 10 months pregnant.
What do you do for me time? Meditation and yoga.
What is the best piece of advice that someone gave you? Before having Oliver my sister said to keep being myself and that I didn't need to change my life just because I was becoming a mom. She said babies adapt. And they do! I always try and remind myself of that.
What is one piece of advice you would pass on? Sleep train. I'm kidding! My advice would be: do you! There is no right way or wrong way to parent. Figure out what works for you and your family and don't worry about anyone else.
