All of the parenting stuff aside though, the neat thing that I found out when I started wearing my boys is that it gave me back the ability to carry on with some of the things that in fact made me "me" in the first place without neglecting my babies. Farmers markets, walks, museums, parks and all kinds of other things were open to me again when I could just pop one of my guys up in a carrier and head out on my way. Having my second and then my third, the carriers became a vital part of my "mommy tool kit". I honestly do not think I would have managed nearly as well without one. And of course necessity is the mother of all invention, like many others before me I'm sure, I just couldn't find something that worked well for me. After many sleepless nights, pages and pages of drafting paper and piles of prototypes, I developed something that did. A group of wonderful women helped me test it out and even though I had some hiccups along the way, I just did what I do best and I kept at it until it was right. A few years later and now it's a much loved product by parents and caregivers world wide.
My babies aren't really babies anymore, Trey is almost 7 years old and it shocks me that he has gotten so big. It's a little bittersweet, as I'm sure it is for all mom's when the one that introduced you to so many things as a first time mom is ready to run off to school and is so independent already. Nathan is 5, he's my sweetie, the cuddle bug and the one that I had the privilege to start wearing right from birth. I think he'll always want to hug me no matter how big he gets and it touches me deeply when he allows me to wear him once in awhile. Preston is my last and final and he'll be 3 in just a few weeks, running everywhere, stealing hearts with his dazzling smile. I was sure I would have a whole bunch of little babies but I'm been so blessed with the three that I have that I can't complain. He still loves to be worn but I know that my days with him are numbered and so I cherish every single one of them.
My business is a labor of love for them. It reflects my dedication and commitment to my children and my desire for every parent or caregiver to have the chance at bonding with their babies like I have. I strive for excellence in my product and value every bit of feedback and constructive criticism that I've received. I work tirelessly to provide a product that I really believe in, something that I think improves the quality of life for parents and children and I plan to continue doing so as long as God has it in his plans for me to do so. God Bless.
