Rachel Zoe may have just ended her reality show run on The Rachel Zoe project, but with her fashion lines and other business endeavors, the stylish mom is keeping her empire in tact. She chatted with Crickets Circle about motherhood, and why her show came to an end after so many years, “The Rachel Zoe Project is officially over after 5 years. It was a good run! I just don’t want cameras inside my personal life with children around – they are sacred,” the 43-year-old explained.
When asked what the hardest part about being a mom Zoe said, “You lose the impulsiveness in your life. Pre-children, I would grab my stuff and hop on a plane to Paris with basically no notice. This is why I decided to have kids later in life. It totally changes the way you approach your life and travel. Now I either do short trips without them or longer trips where I bring them.”
The mother of sons, Skyler Morrison Berman, 3, and Kaius “Kai” Jagger Berman, 11 months, even offered advice for new parents: “Try to be there for the big moments because you can’t get them back. Once your baby takes the first step, you don’t see that again. I used to bring Skyler to work with me almost every day before he started school, but I think it’s easier and more efficient if you separate (mentally and physically) and give each thing your full attention at different times. I do dinner, bath, and bedtime with my kids 90% of the time.”
And, the holidays are in full-swing so the fashion designer offers advice on the essentials parents need when traveling with kids. “A soft pillow and blanket, the iPad, lots of coloring books, arts and crafts, and always pack your own food. Skyler’s favorite thing to eat is an avocado and cheese sandwich, so that’s a must.”
