At many primary schools around Sydney this week, kids and their nanas and pops, celebrated grandparents day. Our dad took time off from his work, getting the new Milly and Eugene premises ready, and he and mum headed down to the local public school where two of our littlies have just started in kindergarten this year. Our kids have a lot to do with their grandparents and have done since they were born, but even so they were still so excited to have their Nanny and Poppy come to their school to see them and visit their classroom. It was a beautiful thing to watch their excited little faces as they spotted them parking the car across the road and walking in through the school gates.
As I stood and watched them interact, I remembered something I read recently.....
that grandmothers make the best mothers......A huge generalisation, I know, but the point is that, today, we mothers are busy with so many different aspects of our lives, we don't always have the quality of time and the perspective to see our children as our parents do. Parenting is a hard and constant job and you can never take your eye off the ball, if you want them to become good little human beans. Grands are lucky, they can enjoy them just the way they are. Our mum and dad feel very privileged to have our children in their lives. And we're glad they are there too.
Here's to grandparents everywhere!!

Milly And Eugene was dreamt up by two young creative sisters with a passion for all things beautiful.
The decision to call their new venture, Milly and Eugene, evolved from the nicknames they were called as young girls. Hailey, was often referred to as Milly by Mum, Jude, as she named her after the famous 60's actress, Hayley Mills. Kate, was given the nickname Eugene, by her older brother, Martin, who thought it was funny to call her an "uncool name" (at the time) and enjoyed the torment and reaction he received whilst using it.
It was after an inspiring family holiday and both having recently completed home renovations, Hailey and Kate's desire to start a homewares company was in the making. Owning a chain of restaurants and retail businesses between them, the sisters are no strangers to hard work and the success that comes with it, so combining their passion and talent, it's no doubt, Milly and Eugene had captured the hearts of their fans. Milly and Eugene has evolved over the years, starting out as a small online business run from the garage of their homes, into their very own retail store and now into wholesaling, their beautiful wares to some of the best retailers around Australia.
It's Hailey and Kate's aspiration to bring you unique and desirable pieces, that have been hand selected from around the world, into your home.
Enjoy and shop often xx
