In 2017, while trying to balance the roles of working full time, being a wife to a firefighter husband that was at the station half the month, and raising two young girls; I had terrible working mom guilt. My facebook feed displayed photos and videos of my stay-at-home mom and teacher friends creating magical memories for their children such as St. Patrick’s Day of Leprechauns, birthday breakfasts I would like to wake up to, and Tooth Fairy experiences I had no idea existed for their children. I searched Amazon, Target, and Etsy looking for an easy button where can I order a box that came with everything I needed to create moments like this for my little ladies.
I couldn’t find a conveniently packaged product, like my 3 dinners I make at home each week with all the ingredients in just the right portions delivered right to my door. I thought to myself, this is ridiculous, working parents should be able to create these magical moments with a click of a button and have it be delivered to our doors. After speaking to my sister who raised her oldest daughter alone until the age of 8, then got married, pregnant, worked full time, and got her MBA she agreed we need to help. We came up with the concept and realized…we don’t do these things for our children we needed someone who was already doing them and well. That is when Mary, my fellow fire wife, stay at home mom, and former elementary school teacher came into the picture. Her background gave us the imaginative ideas we needed to fill the boxes. She enlightened us with stories of enchanted moments she assembled for her children, that we could have never have imagined. We quickly went to work on designing, testing, and creating the Tooth Fairy Box in our “Factory” or as we refer to it “The She Shed”. Now all parents, regardless of how busy we are with work, multiple children, lack of creativity, etc. can make magical memories for their little loves!
