On the subway on our way into town
Taking a selfie on the subway!!
Myleene was so friendly and absolutely beautiful - as you can see from the pics. She's stunning!
Despite the fact that things were running a little later than schedule (her little helper Jessica decided pulling silly faces was better than smiling for the camera!), Myleene and I chatted for a good while about single parenting, achieving a good work/life balance and Myleene's BabyK range that's now in its 12th season in store at Mothercare.
I asked Myleene what would be her advice to any new mums, and her response was concise:
"mama knows best"
We shared experiences about having the confidence to trust your own instinct and Myleene explained that all grown-ups are different and want different things, which is also applicable for children - it can't be expected for any two to behave/want the same. Makes perfect sense to me!
Myleene said for her the key to a good work/life balance is prioritisation and being organised, and I couldn't agree more. What I didn't realise was that Myleene did the nursery/school run for her two daughters herself - it's reassuring to hear that a hugely successful single working parent can manage it all.
Myleene complimented the littlest's impeccable behaviour - proud mummy moment for me!
And here we are... let's get the 35 at 35 list updated. What to tick off next??
