Hi, I'm Bek, the founder of bekaboo. I am a very blessed and proud mama of two gorgeous girls, Kaylah and Sophia, who truely are the loves of my life. The other love in my life is my very supportive (and patient) fiance, Alan, who is my best friend and my rock.
Until recently, I worked fulltime as a litigation lawyer. Over the years I was constantly told that I needed to choose between being a mum and having a career. I was told that I should focus on my career and my family would benefit from my success. I worked very hard at trying to balance being a professional, having a career and being a mum and a loving partner. Life was hard, it was busy, it was tiring, it was stressful and I was no longer working to live but living to work.
Whilst on maternity leave after having my littlest love, Sophia, I came across the following quote:
"You will never have this day with your children again - tomorrow they'll be a little bit older than they are today. Today is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and hold them, study their faces and little feet and pay attention - enjoy today mumma, it will be over before you know it. Relish the charms of the present."
So I decided that things needed to change. I needed to do what made me happy and that is putting my family first. I decided that going back to a simpler life is not going backwards. It is pausing, readjusting and refoccussing on what is important. I decided I wanted to spend my days doing something that I enjoy and something that fulfils me...and that is being creative and making things for little loves...and that was the start of bekaboo.
I now wake up excited for the day. Whilst life is still very busy, I now have time to stop and relish in my girls and I am truly blessed that I have this opportunity to make the most of each moment and each day with them. bekaboo has allowed me to love the life I live and live the life I love.
I hope with the addition of a bekaboo activity play mat or bekaboo swing to your home, you will be able to create moments that you too can relish in with your littlest loves.
I hope you love the bekaboo creations as much as I do.
