Schools are a giant petri dish

When my son went to daycare for the very first time, he got sick. When he moved from the infant room to the next room, he got sick. When a new child joined his room, he got sick.…

Single Mom Working But Can't Afford Childcare

Here is my story…

I’m a single mother of three children ages 11, 3 and 1 years old. I was always the type of woman that worked and had a job. When I had my 1st child, my son, everything was fine. I was married but later got a divorce but things were still going well for my son and I. Fast forward a couple of years and here I am with three children. Even though both fathers wanted me to abort their child, I chose to keep my kids and raise them on my own with or without the fathers. Why…

The women with multiple jobs

After dinner one night, we were looking through some photos and videos of when our son was a one-year-old. Looking back at that age felt like a giant oxymoron: It seemed like forever ago; it seemed like it was only yesterday. I was marveling at how much he has grown up and how much fun he is now when I was struck by the thought about how much easier our life has become.…

Mom Guilt

I am currently writing this post, coffee in hand, from the comfort of Starbucks. Baby girl and I just left her first day of daycare. I desperately needed a coffee, and she desperately needed a nap. And so that is what is currently happening. 

Oh, yes, you read that right. I said daycare.

My 10 month, 18 day, 11 hour and 59 minute old daughter started daycare this…

Funding your maternity leave

When my son was in daycare, there would be a moment right before I would leave where he would cling extra tight to me. He wouldn't cry or beg me not to leave - it was just an extra hug that was hard to part from. His teacher would try to help the transition by saying something along the lines of, "Mommy has to go to work and make that toy money."…

Getting sick at daycare

My son started daycare at 6 weeks old. I remember the heartbreak of leaving him (he was so little!) and the relief of picking him up on that first day (he had gotten bigger!). I did love that facility - the nurturing attitude, the brightly lit rooms, the web cameras for me to check in on him throughout the day.…

Subject Line: WFH

It usually happens on a Friday or a Monday. I'll be in the office, waiting for my email program to start, and they will start to filter in: The Working From Home messages.

One or two emails that come in with the WFH subject line are common enough: Sick children, sick adult, work being done at the house and…

How often are you sick?

Before I had my son, I got a cold around twice a year. It would annoy me for a few days and maybe even cause me to take a day off work to rest at home. My husband would only get a cold maybe one time a year.…

The Hidden Benefits of Daycare

I grew up with live-in nannies. Not many nannies at once of course, I’m not a Kardashian, but one nanny at a time over the course of my childhood. My parents both worked full-time jobs and needed someone around the clock to help take care of me and my brother. I loved my nannies, they were like family to me and I cried as each one of them left to be closer to their real families.

So when it came time to make a decision for …

Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better....

Perhaps it started way back when in the prehistoric annals of domesticity, the 1950's. If one went by the media and popular accounts of daily life that were portrayed at the time, women wanted to do nothing more than to keep a beautiful home and cook a wonderful meal. The name of the game was perfection and the holy grail was a sparkling kitchen floor and a husband's shirt that was devoid of the feared "ring around the collar." Apparently women enjoyed just being able to please their husbands… Continue
