"Personal stylist, flamingo fanatic and mother to Emmie, 8 months, shares with us what she loves most about being a parent, and the values she hopes to instil in her daughter..."
Caitlin wears Baby Frankie,
a little bag to help with her big days
Best part about being a mother: That cheeky smile when she recognises me, and the realisation I have that I’m her person. And I’m going to be her person for the rest of her life. that is so freakin’ cool!
Favourite parenting advice you received: "Buy a pack of old-school cloth nappies” I did and I use them for EVERYTHING (except, ironically, as nappies).
What you didn't see coming: The never-ending-ness of it all (apparently you get to keep them! ) but at the same time, the overwhelming sense of love for this tiny human person.
Having your own business and having a baby: Is a crazy idea! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love that I get to spend heaps of time with my tiny human, but I still get to be a little bit of me everyday. My business keeps me sane.
Values you want to instil in your daughter: To be kind. If everyone was just kind to one another, the world would be a much different place
Your Ideal Sunday: It starts with a sleep-in! (what? what is that) and is filled with lots of family time, and maybe some good coffee and avo on toast.
Mother's day wish list: see last note re sleep-in. and then add coffee in bed haha. I wouldn’t say no to a new Saben bag either though….. just something big enough to carry all of the things (babies need a lot of stuff)
We would recommend the Go-Tote
, perfect to throw it all in, and as the name suggests: GO!
