Celebrating our Goldie Moms 

 As we approach Mother's Day, we are filled with appreciation for the remarkable women who have supported us along the way. We interviewed Arielle Watlington, Website Developer for Goldie Tees, and Crystal Orraca, Director of Production at Goldie Tees. To commemorate this occasion, we've reached out to these inspiring women, seeking their insights on navigating the challenges of motherhood. Through their experiences, lessons learned, and parenting philosophies, we hope to gain a deeper understanding of the joys and complexities that come with this extraordinary journey.

What are some of the greatest lessons you’ve learned as a mom?

Unconditional love, patience, prioritizing, adaptability, selflessness, forgiveness, and gratitude.

How do you balance your career while being a mom?

Prioritize and organize. Setting boundaries between work and personal life. Asking for help or delegating tasks at work or at home. Taking breaks, practicing mindfulness or meditation, and getting enough sleep. Communication is key! This helps create a supportive work environment and ensures that both career and personal needs are met.

What is your daily mama uniform?

Goldie Tees are essential to my everyday uniform. From school drop off / pick up to date night, I can wear a Goldie Tee for every occasion!

What advice would you give to new moms? 

Never wake a sleeping baby! Ha - but also, it's very easy to forget yourself as a new mom. Take care of yourself, and speak kindly to yourself. Make sure to set time aside for the things you enjoy - it's important for children to see/know that their mother has a full life outside of motherhood.

What are some of the greatest lessons you’ve learned as a mom?

That there is no limit to love and patience.

What has motherhood taught you about yourself? 

That when it feels like there is no more left in you, somehow the mother in me can always get back up. 

What is your favorite activity to do with your child? 

We love to go shopping together - having a teenager is so much fun!
