    Team Spotlight: The Moms of BB Dakota

    In the spirit of Mother’s Day, we talk all things motherhood with some of our team’s most talented boss mamas. 

    "Motherhood revealed that I have more patience and empathy than I knew." - Whitney L., Director of Production
    Tell Us About Your Daughter! 

    WL: Ava Jaymes is 19 months old. Named after her dad “AJ”.  She loves the beach and playing outside-especially if dirt and rocks are involved. Love her silly, happy go lucky personality. She's very outgoing!

    What has motherhood taught you about yourself?

    Motherhood revealed that I have more patience and empathy than I knew!

    What is the most rewarding part about being a mom?

    WL: Feeling the unconditional love we have for each other.

    Thoughts on balancing a career and family?

    WL: What a challenge! But having a career that I love makes it easier since going to work is fulfilling for me personally. And when I am home with her I do my best to be fully present and enjoy all the moments I do get to be with her.

    What impact has being a mom had on your personal style?

    WL: I dress more for comfort than before! Its hard to wear short dresses when having to pick her up all the time! Also definitely no heels anymore ; ) My ideal mom go-to would be slip on vans, jeans and a knit simple top! I wear a few more pieces of jewelry than I used to just to keep the simplicity stylish.

    One thing you hope Ava learns from you?

    WL: Happiness comes from within and to be nice to everyone, all the time.

    One thing you’ve learned from Ava?
    WL: When seen with fresh eyes the world is truly an awe inspiring place-enjoy it! 

    "Unconditional love. It's hard to understand the concept until you have kids." - Gwen L., Sr. Production Manager

    Tell Us About Your Girls! 

    GL: Natalie is 6 and is obsessed with LOL dolls. She loves singing and dancing. She is outgoing and charismatic. Madison is 2 and loves Muppet Babies. She loves to eat and has a strong mind of her own.

    What has motherhood taught you about yourself?

    GL: I’ve learned that I am more like my mom than I thought.

    What is the most rewarding part about being a mom?

    GL: Watching your children shape into independent individuals, making the right decisions on their own.

    Thoughts on balancing a career and family?

    GL: Days are long, but the years are short. In the hustle and bustle, its important to cherish the moments we have as a family.

    What impact has being a mom had on your personal style?

    GL: I try to balance being comfort and style. Being a mom, my clothes often get dirty, so I prefer machine washable clothes.

    One thing you hope your girls learn from you?

    GL: I hope they learn not to be entitled and the virtue of earning something through hard work.

    One thing you’ve learned from them?

    GL: Unconditional love. It's hard to understand the concept until you have kids.

    "Motherhood has taught me patience and to stop and smell the roses." - Brittany D., CS Account Coordinator
    Tell Us About Your Son! 

    BD: My little love Caleb is 4 years old (almost 5). He is the light of my life. He loves adventure and exploring the outdoors. It’s never a dull moment. From his amazing dance moves to building Lego cities. Our house is full of laughter and love. With his curiosity, creativity and old soul I’m so proud to be called Mama.

    What has motherhood taught you about yourself?

    BD: Motherhood has taught me patience and to stop and smell the roses.

    What is the most rewarding part about being a mom?

    BD: The most rewarding part about being Caleb’s mom is watching him lend out his hand if a classmate falls. Having a kind heart.

    Thoughts on balancing a career and family?

    BD: Balancing a career and family is difficult at times. Cherish those moments you are together.

    What impact has being a mom had on your personal style?

    BD: Me personally my wardrobe hasn’t really changed. I’ve always picked out clothes that allowed me to move and groove.

    One thing you hope Caleb learns from you?

    BD: One thing I hope Caleb learns from me is to never give up. “Just keep swimming”.

    One thing you’ve learned from him?

    BD: One thing I’ve learned from him is to not sweat the small stuff. Enjoy each moment like it’s the last.

    "He makes me so happy. I love just running around with him all the time, he keeps me on my toes. Teaching him all sorts of new tricks and seeing how quickly he picks it up just makes my heart melt." - Rochelle W., Customer Service Manager

    Tell Us About Your Pup! 

    RW: Onyx is my 3 month old black lab puppy!  Cute as heck, but definitely a land shark.  Also, a super Mama’s boy.  He knows where to go for love ❤  You can’t make this guy go anywhere. If he wants lazy time instead of a walk, he will just sit his butt down until you basically have to drag him.

    What has motherhood taught you about yourself?

    RW: Patience! I feel like puppies are so cute in order for them to be able to get away with all the trouble they possibly can find.

    What is the most rewarding part about being a dog mom?

    RW: He makes me so happy. I love just running around with him all the time, he keeps me on my toes. Teaching him all sorts of new tricks and seeing how quickly he picks it up just makes my heart melt.

    Thoughts on balancing your career and pup care?

    RW: Haha…this one isn’t too bad for me.  I get to bring him in to hang out. He is one lucky guy!

    What impact has having a dog had on your personal style?

    RW: Comfort is key!

    One thing you hope Onyx learns from you?

    RW: Arms are not chew toys  haha.  But really, I just want him to be sweet and get along with everyone.  Hoping to explore all over with this little dude.

    One thing you’ve learned from him?

    RW: It doesn’t matter how expensive the toy, they will always just want to play with the cardboard tag.
     

    "Motherhood has taught me that the happiest moments of my life were in the “small” things... I cherish every beautiful moment." - Joanne L., Office Administrator

    Tell Us About Your Kids! 

    JL: Chris, 18, is almost 6 ft. tall, but he has a gentle spirit and a deeply kind soul. Loves to play video games and eat ramen. If you ever need someone to just kick it with…he’ll always be down. Catie, 14, loves to take pics of people and landscapes, to play all sports (including flag football with the boys) and to bake! She even has a home baking business. You can follow her @lilcatiecakes.

    What has motherhood taught you about yourself?

    JL: Motherhood has taught me SO much! Patience, forgiveness, self-awareness, empathy, unconditional love…but most importantly, to appreciate the small things. I always thought the defining moments in life were the big ones. Going to prom, graduating high school, going to college, getting married, etc. But motherhood has taught me that the happiest moments of my life were in the “small” things: hearing my babies say “I wuv woo”; feeling their hands in mine; seeing them chatting and laughing as we walk down the grocery aisles. I cherish every beautiful moment.

    What is the most rewarding part about being a mom?

    JL: I hear from people all the time that my kids are so amazing. Not because of any scholastic or athletic accomplishment, but because they are such loving, genuine, grounded kids. I feel so much pride knowing that I raised my children to be good human beings. I blink back tears as I think about them…they truly are the best parts of me.

    Thoughts on balancing your career and family?

    JL: Balancing a career and a family is exceptionally difficult. Splitting your focus, your attention…trying to be the best you can be in both areas of life. But when you find a healthy balance, it is so rewarding.  Just need to make sure you also find time for yourself! Self-care is vital.

    What impact has being a mom had on your personal style?

    JL: Haha I’m a mom…doesn’t impact my personal style at all. I am still ME. My kids will attest that I would wear high heels to soccer games, dresses to Chuck E. Cheese, blazers to parent-teacher conferences.  I always have my lipstick on even when I’m just running to the grocery. My kids would complain that I didn’t look like the other moms, but I didn’t want to look like anybody else but me!

    One thing you hope your kids learn from you?

    JL: I hope that my kids will learn resilience from me.  No matter what happens, get through it with grace and humility.  And always know that mommy is here to wipe away the tears, give hugs, and to listen.
