Vincent is everything NYC! He loves to dance, ride his scooter outside, swim, ride the big boy bus to school, and sneak as many slices of pizza, cupcakes, and cookies as he possibly can in any given day. He enjoys every second of his new role as a big brother, and can’t stand shoes that he can’t put on himself (ahem, laces!!), mommy combing through his curly hair at the end of each bath. Eyana, his mother, has worn multiple hats in the corporate industry — working in management consulting, investment banking, and the beauty industry until she assumed her role of motherhood. She now owns STORK, a children’s retail boutique in Brooklyn.

Zoe is a world traveler, a pink lover, a daydreamer who wants to be a princess and can not live without her bunny “Pinpin”. Born in NYC from a French/German + a Belgian father, she carries three passports. She loves many things in life, but her dislikes are funny ones : having water in her eyes, anything green in her plate, socks, sparkling water, spicy food and having to count backwards from 10 to one for school.
With a child like Iris at home, we feel we don’t need to go to the theatre or to the circus anymore. She’s a real entertainer and a comic, and we laugh for a whole evening when she starts a show. But her true passion is drawing and she can spend hours with a pencil in hand. It feels very strange to me, the usual interviewer to be part of the game…But it’s fun! Florence/Pirouette
