Dear Working Moms,
Today, you’re all on my mind. Whether your office is in a professional building or in the comfort of your own home, I’ve been thinking about you. Whether you’re a married mom or a single mom, whether you dress up in a suit to go into the city or slide on your yoga pants in the morning to take care of your kids for the day, it’s important to say:
We’re all working moms.
Hot moms, with wrinkle-free foreheads and perky derrieres, are strange and fascinating creatures. They don’t seem to live in the same world as the rest of us. What’s their secret? Pampering oneself into a blissful state of constant beauty looks fun, but all that plucking and waxing must be exhausting....more
I’ve wanted to write this post since I created my blog. I started this post on multiple occasions, only to stop because it just wasn’t “ready.” I was ready to talk about it, but for some reason the right words weren’t there yet. Since it is something I feel so passionate about, I made myself wait until the post essentially came to me, wrote itself....more

His last playdate was two months ago. Want to know what Cian does?...more
Working from home makes it easier to care for my son Soon after the Navigator’s Autism diagnosis I left a full-time job to become a work-at-home mom. My job required a great deal of travel and while Autism Dad did a terrific job when I was on the road, the Navigator ...more
I said a lot of dumb things when I was in my 20s. As I am now older and (presumably) wiser, I take comfort in the fact that everyone says dumb things in their 20s. In your 20s you suffer from an optimistic idealistic attitude about...well, everything. ...more
Around this time last year, I was totally exhausted; I had spent the last two years working 60-70 hours a week. I was often up at 5 a.m. with a cup of coffee in hand, answering emails, solving problems, and generally just getting stuff done before showering, taking the kids to school, and heading into the office.
