Anyone who says staying home with a child isn’t “work,” probably hasn’t done it themselves. Of course, it’s also one of the most rewarding (but under-appreciated) “jobs” a parent can have. Silver Lake-based mama Cheri Messerli knows this fact all too well, trading in her gig as the co-founder (along with her husband David Rager) of Weekends design studio for a less intense involvement in the company in order to raise her 2-year-old daughter Anouk.
