How did you start your business?

I spent my entire career in the movie business but had lost my passion for it. When my son was a newborn, I saw a white space in the market when I could not find anything I loved for him to wear to sleep. I started researching, designing and obsessing. I ultimately decided to produce a small run of what I thought were the perfect pajamas as an experiment. I wanted to see if other moms would respond the same way to them that I did – and they did. I never looked back!

What advice would you give to other moms looking to start a business?

Just jump in. Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Take baby steps, and refine and learn as you grow!

How do you balance mom life and work-life?  Is there even such a thing?

There is no such thing in the day-to-day! I think it is so important to accept (and embrace) that every day there will be some sort of sacrifice. Usually, for me that’s sleep – I’m still working on that. 🙂

Favorite quote/Motto to live by?

The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those that got there first.

What is your theme song or karaoke song?

Karaoke song – Walk this Way by Aerosmith!

I guess I need a personal theme song though, I’m on the hunt!

What are you hoping to do to celebrate Mother’s Day this year?  Anything on your wish list?

I’d love to sleep in and then spend the day with both my kids and my own mama!

What are five things you cannot live without?

  • My family – my everything!
  • A great sleep mask (we just made a bamboo version and its life-changing)
  • The internet (let’s be honest)
  • Coffee
  • Chocolate

How do you indulge for YOURSELF?

In non-Covid times, travel is my biggest indulgence! I love a great hotel and exotic destination. I can’t wait until it’s safe again!

What is the best part about motherhood?

My kids are the greatest gift I’ve ever been given and give my life such meaning and purpose. Basically, I’ve found that all of the clichés are true!

Funniest thing your kid has ever said or done?

Currently, my son is very into playing Thumb War, but thinks its called Thumb Award. “One, Two, Three, Four, let’s have a thumb award.” I will never correct this.

First thing you will do when the pandemic is over?

Take an epic trip! Japan is at the top of my list!
