What is a Working Mother?

What is a Working Mother?

Just recently Moms Pump Here was featured as a top App for working mothers. There are so many great Apps listed that make life a lot easier for moms. This made me think, "What is a Working Mother?"

Immediately you think of a woman that gets up to take care of her kids in the morning, maybe breast pump to have breast milk ready for her baby while she's gone and then hustle off to her 9-5 desk job. This is definitley the traditional scenerio of a working mom but the term "working mom" now takes on a whole new meaning.

Oh, the Places You'll Nurse

Oh, the Places You'll Nurse

There’s nothing in your life quite like the experience of breastfeeding your children. You’ll create this profound bond with the little life you brought into the world, but you’ll also experience sore nipples, tender breasts and grumpy people who think you shouldn’t be exposing their delicate sensibilities to the concept of feeding babies in public.

Whether you’re nestled in the corner with a newborn or juggling an energetic 1-year-old who wants to see the world while breastfeeding, you never know the kinds of places that you’ll end up nursing.

5 Ways to OWN Your Body Like Ashley Graham This Summer

So I have this major insecurity....my arms. They're huge! Well not really. They could use some work. BUT kids happened and life happened. I no longer excercise the way I used to and my eating habits could be better.

Recently I've been looking at Instagram accounts of plus size models and famous model Ashley Graham trying to drum up the courage to wear what I want to wear this summer. Ashley is owning her cellulite like it's no body's business. So this summer I am owning who I am and what my body looks like.

Babies in the Workplace

Babies in the Workplace

When I moved to Miami my daughter was about 15 months old and my olest 3. We didn't know anyone and had to quickly find solutions for daycare. We were still getting to know neighbors and couldn't trust anyone with our treasure. One day for some reason (mommy brain...don't remember) I had to bring my daughter into work with me. I was working at a university and had my own office. So I figured I could close the door and I wouldn't bother my co-workers. What I couldn't predict is how my boss would respond. He had always been great about me working from home when I needed to but bringing a toddler to work? 

I got to the office early and he was not in yet. I had time to get her settled, start work and answer some emails. When he arrived he was definitley surprised to see her. I explained why I had to bring her in (still don't remember) and said I would keep her in the office with me. No one would hear a peep from her. His response was brief but he seemed ok with it. I knew I was pushing it by bringing her in but in my mind at that time I wanted them to know I was committed to my work. And committed to my children. Besides he hired me before I moved to Miami so he knew our childcare situation was dismal.
