Sharon is a mom and the co-founder of MeebleMail.com.
How many children do you have? Two children: ages 4½ and 5 months.
How did you come up with the idea for your company? I love paper stationery, but my main form of communication was email. I wanted the same style and sensibilty as paper stationery for my email and couldn’t find it in the marketplace.
What’s your favorite parenting tip? Sometimes you just have to let it go. My son has Celiac, and he has some major food issues. When he was first diagnosed, our doctor put me in touch with a “mentor” and she told me sometimes you just have to let them eat what they’ll eat and sometimes it’s the same thing for dinner several days in a row. While a perfectly balanced meal is ideal, a lot of times that just doesn’t happen.
How do you get your family to eat healthy food and/or exercise? Active play. My husband is best at this, whether it’s a pick up game of kickball with the neighborhood kids or running around the house playing chase, he keeps us all moving.
How do you recharge your batteries? These days, it’s the little things: a pedicure, sleeping in on the weekend, and trying to disconnect from the computer for several hours on the weekend. I am dreaming of a nice vacation in a remote spot without Internet access!
