I talk about myself a lot. But then again, this is the place to do so. This is MY blog.
On Twitter I am known as DCWorkingMommy. Why? Because I am a mommy who works in Washington, D.C. Clever, no?
I don’t talk about the specifics of what I do, however I share some of the drama that I sometimes encounter.

When I sat down to blog this morning I was all set to write some funny anecdote about Jenna “frowing” up. Seriously she’s eight and genuinely thinks it’s called frowing up. I can’t bear to correct her; it was a beautiful glimpse of the little girl she still is.

I used to be a madwoman on the weekends. Dr. D. avoided me Saturday mornings as I rode around on my broom frantically trying to cram in as many tasks before noon as possible. As a busy working mother, I found that my weekends were consumed with catching up on all of the stuff I couldn't get done during the week -- laundry, cooking, errands, you name it. Even before…Continue

At school I studied hard, tried really hard, got good grades and helped my teachers after school. I was such a good girl that during the planning of my high school’s (unsanctioned) senior skip day I was asked to collect my classmate’s money…Continue
