With Mother’s Day around the corner, we’d love to introduce you to just a few of the amazing mums who are working behind the scenes for you at Jeanswest. We’ve captured some beautiful moments between our JW Mums and their loved ones, and caught up on all things motherhood!
Meet Vicki, Jeanswest Denim QA Technician and Product Developer for our maternity range…. And young, gorgeous mum & grandma to this sweet bunch!
Vicki, you look way too young to have grown up children! What’s one of your achievements as a mum, that you’re most proud of?
Learning to educate and raise my children to have great values, through listening to them first, and hearing them out. It helps to understand what they’re thinking and where they’re coming from. It can be super hard to do, but it’s rewarding.
Now that your children are grown up, what do they do that melts your heart?
They ask me, “Are you ok?”. That, along with watching the way they communicate with each other, makes my heart burst. Oh… and now we can all party together!
Your daughter looks so much like you – what is the biggest thing aside from looks that you see yourself and Samantha having in common?
A love for people… and our dog Charlie!
We also have the same hair, so we have this thing where I have to sing out and ask her every time we go somewhere together… Are you wearing it straight or natural? I must check so that I can do the opposite, so I don’t look like I’m trying to copy my daughter!
What has been one of your favourite moments watching your eldest son as a parent?
Watching the pride on Paul and Bianca’s face whenever Lucas does something or learns something new. This is why we’re here – it’s the simple things.
What’s one of your favourite things to do with your family?
Going away together to the river and getting on our wake skate! Everyone supports each other in doing there best, and we laugh. A lot.
As an amazing mum, can you leave us with us a top parenting tip?
One team one dream. Accept people for who they are, the good and the bad, and embrace it all because the good is always greater, and absolutely no one is perfect.
