We love today’s mama, Surya Kishi Grover, for so many reasons. For starters, we have been long-time fans of her company, Tosan, which offers up thoughtful, ethical, and beautifully designed items for members of the second-coolest club on the planet: dads. Then there’s her incredible home—a century-old beach shack that she and her husband redesigned from the ground up, moving in with just weeks to spare before she birthed her second son there (right in the pretty playroom, we might add). But what really gets us is the raw-yet-insightful way she talks about motherhood. With three handsome sons, a gorgeous house on the beach, and well, that hair, she could very easily be one of those Insta mothers who makes it all look easy—who insists that her kids really do just want to play with those handcrafted wooden toys. Instead, she never backs down from the chance to take a hard look at herself, her kids, and her life, and express the joys and challenges in ways that makes the Internet stand up and shout “YESSSSS! THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT.” So today, we asked her about all of it—the surprise third kid, the postpartum anxiety, the pressure to do it all right, and the grace in getting it wrong sometimes. Plus, we check out her house and bananas new backyard oasis. Click through for the full tour, and to get to know one hell of a woman.
