Last Thursday we were fortunate enough to be invited to attend Baby2Baby’s Mother’s Day party in Beverly Hills hosted by Molly Sims and Rachel Zoe! The event was a Mother’s Day Playdate that gave mothers a chance to be pampered and enjoy a celebration with their children (so cute, right!?). A portion of the proceeds from the event hosted by Tiny Prints and the Baby2Baby birth announcement collection (sold online) will help provide more than 3,000 new cribs and give a helping hand to families who need one.
Lots of celeb working moms were there including Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie, Rebecca Gayheart, Amanda de Cadenet, Norah Weinstein, Kelly Sawyer and more. We got a chance to catch up with Molly and Rachel and ask how they have learned to balance their careers while being moms to their sweet baby boys!
Rachel Zoe: “You don’t! The only way to do both (work and be a mom) is staying up late and getting up early. You’ll be tired but you get to be with your kids and have a career. For me it might mean skipping washing my hair or spending the time on myself like I used to. The only other way I find to balance is I will take my kids with me wherever we go! It’s been a little harder now that Skyler is in school which is why he’s not here today, otherwise he would be! I try to do all things full time and I think that can be my biggest problem.”
Molly Sims: “You work hard you play hard; and you commit! Sometimes I have to just lock myself in a room and not let them hear me to be able to get any work done! The key is to multi-task all day long so I can set time aside at night to put my phone down and just be with him and my husband.”
Led by Co-Presidents Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein, Los Angeles based non-profit Baby2Baby provides low-income children, ages 0-12, with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. By distributing new and gently used items to over 50 non-profit partner organizations including homeless and domestic violence shelters, Head Start programs and other social service agencies, Baby2Baby will serve over 70,000 children this year! Isn’t that amazing!? Love them for that!
