In 2007, with Alex trying to crawl, I couldn’t believe that there was still nothing on the market like the little crawl suits I had in my head.
Every time I walked into a Mothercare store I would hold my breath in case another company had developed something like these. But there was still nothing on the market like it.
The more I thought about the suits, the more I wanted to develop them.
However, in early 2008, my world as I knew it shattered.
My marriage broke down.
Words can’t describe the resulting fall out from that. Suffice it to say that it took a huge toll on the emotional health of myself, my boys and my family. For anyone who has been through an experience like this, I’m sure you’ll identify.
So needless to say, my grand plans of developing a product and setting up a company went straight out the window! All my energy and focus was going into the boys to make sure they were ok and that they were emotionally supported and to try to keep things as normal as possible for them.
