I’m Amy Wierks, mom of two boys– Caleb, 3.5 years, and Bentley, 10 months, wife to Ryan. I live in beautiful Chilliwack, BC, about 1.5 hours away from Vancouver, BC. I am an elementary school teacher on maternity leave, currently!
How did you come up with the name Little Boy Blue? // When the idea for a business first started to take shape, my husband and I kept tossing around names. I wanted something boyish and classic that was easy to remember! We started looking at nursery rhymes for inspiration, recalled Little Boy Blue, and there was our name!
As a mom, how do you balance everything?! // Oh my, that is such a tough question and something I struggle with (as every mom I know does!). I do my best to work while my boys are napping or in bed for the night. If I have a deadline to meet, or just a few minutes of work, I’ll try to get it done quickly while the boys are occupied playing. I try to spend as much time of my day with the boys, and limit my iphone/computer use while they’re around (it’s definitely a challenge for me though!). My oldest goes to preschool two mornings a week, and I use that time for errands with just the baby, or doing work at home while baby naps.
When you’re not busy being super mom, what could we find you doing? // I always have a book (or 5!) on the go! I love spending time in the kitchen, prepping food, cooking, puttering, especially while listening to a podcast (Stuff You Should Know, or Serial, anyone?!?). I typically always have a craft going- I knit, crochet, sew, DIY…
What has been your favorite design so far? // I’m partial to the Hunter Green Stag Leggings. I love the stag silhouette, and the hunter green is so classic and wonderful on little boy legs!
Any sneak peeks or hints to new designs you’re thinking of? // I’m working on some fun summer products! I wish I could say more…. but I can’t!
Just for fun, If you were to try out for The Voice, what song would you pick to sing? // I would say that I would have to repeat my epic Mediterranean cruise karaoke singing experience in front of about 200 strangers and sing Bon Jovi’s “Living on a Prayer”.
