Perrine The creative#23weeks
Perrine, the 34 year-old artistic director, began her career in the press. In 2010, she created Les Confettis, an online notebook like platform for discovering and sharing notebook like inspirations of her favourites. Last June she launched a semi-annual magazine of the same name, driven by the desire to highlight inspiriting women. Already a mother to a little Ninon, she is expecting her second child and shares her life between her family and her graphic design projects within her agency and the animation of her webzine.
How would you describe your tribe?
For the moment, I would say that the three of us are rather merged. Sometimes the dad and I feel we don’t get to enjoy our little girl as much as we’d like during the week because of how busy our lives are. However the weekends give us an opportunity to catch up and enjoy our time at a leisurely pace. But all this may soon be turned upside down by the arrival of a little brother.
What values would you like to pass on to your children?
I really want them to be curious about everything, open and have a mindset that everything is possible.
How would you describe yourself as a mom?
I think I'm a pretty cool mom ... or at least I hope so! Our family functions on 2 gears, during the week we are a pretty efficient team of dad, nanny and I. And in the evenings and on the weekends I am completely dedicated to my little girl.
What inspires you as a mom every day?
Seeing my daughter grow and evolve every day is a tremendous happiness. I am very proud of her. I am very impressed by how independent she is. She is already a real person with her own personality. I am curious to see what kind of a person she will become but at the same time I do not want time to fly. I want to remember every moment.
What passions do you share with your little one?
For now it’s music, drawing and discovering new things. I am hoping soon we can travel as a family.
9 months of pregnancy, too short or too long?
I would say that 9 months are needed for the idea of becoming a mother to sink in and to prepare psychologically. The two pregnancy experiences have been very different. The first time I was pregnant everything was a discovery, we were attentive to everything. I also had the chance to be particularly fit, which allowed me to work throughout the entire pregnancy. This time I feel physically more experienced but it's probably because I already have a little girl who asks me a lot of attention.
Is there anything you are currently craving that you cannot have?
Ah, yes ... I would say, it is the red wine and the good cheese that I am seriously starting to miss. It is so synonymous with conviviality!
Fun family moments?
In daily life, it is the three of us waking up together in bed, the moments of hugs and kisses. Otherwise in general, as soon as she laughs, I am in heaven. I also love to hear her sing or invent little stories.
A few words for your baby?
I can’t wait to get to know you. You have a fabulous big sister and as the first boy in the family, you are very much awaited!
