The Petunia Pickle Bottom Stroll was recently featured in Pregnancy & Newborn‘s Fall 2014 Buyer’s Guide.
These days, modern moms everywhere are opting to keep their careers while venturing into motherhood. Petunia Pickle Bottom’s Creative Director, Janelle Key, shares some insight into how she has been able to successfully balance work and home life, all with two little ones.
After 6 weeks maternity leave and another 6 weeks of working from home with my first-born, I’ll never forget the day I had to take her to a childcare provider for my first day back in the office (this was before I worked for Petunia Pickle Bottom). It was heartbreaking. Throughout her first year, I would get home as fast as humanly possible to spend a couple of hours with her before putting her to bed each night.
I was not fortunate enough to have grandparents or relatives who could help us out. My husband was working full-time, too. We asked ourselves what we really needed to do to find balance for our family, and that’s when I decided to make some changes.
