Q & A with Meg Shackleton Founder of Margaret Elizabeth
So hard to choose just one thing! Tate is such a little snuggle bunny
and I couldn’t love his little kisses and hugs any more if I tried.
I love that I’m experiencing a totally new type of love and relationship. Everyone told me that I’d be forever changed by the love I’d have for my baby- and I thought it was kind of cliché and trite- but it really couldn’t have been more true! I feel so lucky to have the bond that I do with my little guy.
For the last 6 months I’ve been pumping at work, so it’s made the tops I choose really tricky. I find that button downs are by far the easiest and good nursing bras are a must. I also love button front men’s style PJ’s because it makes nursing in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning so easy. I think these make a great shower gift for new moms because it’s not something you think about when planning for the bebe!
It’s definitely changed! I find myself gravitating towards more easy-to-care-for fabrics
and tops that I can wear at the park but also dress up for meetings.
years ago. We’re now carried in over 150 stores worldwide and have a flagship store in San Francisco! It’s been so much fun!
two days. We settle back to the house around 5:30 and have dinner, bath time, story time, and then bedtime- it’s a process! A glass of
wine typically makes its way into that lineup.
It’s hard! Without question, this is the toughest part of motherhood for me. My husband and I have a date night once a week and I cherish that time together. It’s so nice to get out of the house, even if we’re just grabbing tacos down the street, & we both look forward to it all week. I also could not be more thankful for my girlfriends who are mamas, too. The community we share is so special & I am so thankful that we have a ‘we’re all in this together’ mindset.

I don’t think I fully comprehended how much life changes. I wouldn’t trade being a mom for anything in the world- but until the day comes that that beautiful little baby is in your arms, I think it’s impossible to understand how different your life will be.
