meet the mama : elle from cherry and me

posted on: Thursday, March 15, 2012


"My life BC (before Cherry), was quite social, spontaneous and creative. I worked in an art gallery and ran my own graphic design business, Elleski Design. I loved heading out to art openings, trying out new trendy bars and catching up with friends in the evenings.

Now our day usually starts in our garden with breakfast, while Cherry feeds our pet chickens and I catch up on my favourite blogs on the iPad. Then we’ll load up the pram and stroll down to one of our local cafés to meet up with friends.

I'm surprised how quickly babies grow and develop. It’s amazing looking back at photos from only a few weeks ago and seeing how much Cherry has changed. Before I had Cherry I didn't know too much about what to expect and I’m glad I didn’t read any books. Ignorance is bliss! My husband and I learned on the job.

If had to give advice to other new mamas I would say, don’t be too strict with routines. Looking back I spent too much time worrying that Cherry wasn’t sleeping when she was meant to, rather than when she wanted too. Just look for the signs and your baby will tell you what they need.

The hardest thing for us is getting up on a Sunday morning after a big night out. Sleeping in is the only thing I miss. I love my new life.

I've set up my blog, Cherry and Me, to keep the creative juices flowing. I’m very lucky I can spend time with Cherry at home and plan on making the most of our time together. The best parenting advice I've been given is, 'Love the other parent'. Enough said!"

  4. Sleeping in, ahhhh yes. What does that feel like again? I love how she chose to shade the backyard for the kids too. So simple, but clever and very cute!

  5. C’est devenu la mode, klima servisi maintenant, et c’est dégoutant, il y a de plus en plus de concours de ce genre lancé par de grands groupes, des eca kombi servisi grosses sociétés, avec une rémunération dérisoire. Vous, Kielo, vous ne doutez klima servisi pas une seconde ? mais quand de plus en plus de gens seront payés de la sorte, je vous souhaite un vrai boulot en CDI, ou un poste de fonctionnaire.demirdöküm kombi servisi

    Oui sûrement un bon coup marketing, et peut-être rien de plus.almanya sohbet
    On peut penser qu’il y a assez de forts en maths à la NASA pour klima servisi trouver une solution satisfaisante. Il est même possible webmaster forumları qu’ils l’aient déjà trouvée, de quand date la découverte du problème ? webmaster forumu
