When we ran our very first contest for a Mother reader to be featured on these very pages (along with winning $1,000 to Old Navy), we lucked out randomly choosing Seattle-based freelance stylist Mary Elizabeth Ford. Not only did the youngster mama of three under three totally deserve the cash—at the time, she was incredibly pregnant with twins—she’s also natural Mother material, thanks to her admirable style and relatable motherhood M.O. Meet the mama of nearly 3-year-old Theodore Scout and nearly 5-month-old twins Ruby James and Walter Wilde, right here.

I love this! So refreshing to read about real-life moms and creatives making it all work.

Cheers to a real-life mom with a no-bullshit attitude.
Mother, I enjoy all your profiles, but this one is edging the others out.
Props to you, Mary!

I can sympathize – I have a 2 year old and 8 month old twins. But while I was able to keep adult spaces with one (or even with non-mobile twins), that so changed when they started crawling. I gave up my living area for the meantime for a baby jail (aka play pen). It’s the only way to survive two crawling in opposite directions and an energetic toddler who still can get into lots of trouble unsupervised.

I LOVE this profile! It is so refreshing to see a mom who is just being a mom right now. I love that she is pursuing her career, but her babies are her priority right now and she’ll get to her work later. Its OK and good to not be busy out of your mind. This really speaks to me!
