Yes, being a work-from-home mom is not for the faint-hearted. And I’m not even getting started on the bad days when schools are shut, or the children fall ill or the help mysteriously disappear to their gaons (villages) for vague, unexplained reasons. So the next time, someone you know tells you she’s a work-from-home mom, give her an encouraging pat on the back. Even better, take her out for coffee or offer to watch her kids while she takes a luxurious ten minute shower. Trust me,…Continue

Really glad it's Monday after a crazy weekend of non-stop kid activities and sports. Even though I'm working, I'm actually sitting down as opposed to any given day on the weekend. Read more about it on my blog...Room for One More

Yesterday I shared with you my Child Care Woes. The day care we use will be closed until August 13th for a suspected mold they found in one of the rooms. On one hand I am happy they take any concerns like this seriously and promptly. On the other hand I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to find child care for the days I work. Right now we do not live close to family or friends. I…Continue

Yeah, pump it up! If you're a child of the 80's like me (yes I'm a nerd, and a music nerd)- than this might be the first song that comes to mind and it's totally okay if you sing along:
But I wasn't really talking about that type of pumping it up- I'm talking about the working mom! The mom who's gotta nurse her baby even though she works 8-5, kind of pump-it-up. If you don't nurse, or have boobs, you can…Continue

"Mommy guilt", I don't want my baby in day care, I don't want anyone else to raise my baby, and finally going back to work just isn't worth it. Each year more and more new Mothers are leaving the Corporate Life in search of the ever elusive, "Work Life Balance." Mompreneurs, with our new companies and our new inventions are driven and motivated to change the business World and create the ideal family work structure. I'm not going to use the word balance, because truly are you never really…Continue

Last Friday was the last day of Camp Runamuk (the affectionate name we call life at my house when the kids are off school and fun is involved) and I decided to host the First Annual Dugdale Trifecta Easter Egg Hunt.
Here’s what you get when you have 4 mommies + 14 kids + 225 eggs + 12 tons of sugar =

. . . was the question from the Dish Network installer at my house today as we were entertaining 14 yes, I said FOURTEEN, children.
. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot! “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response.

A little over a year ago I took the leap and went back into the workforce.
For seven years prior to that I was an English Professor. I spent the last 3 years teaching online only so I worked at home. Now I work outside the home and I LOVE my job.
I was worried about the effect it would have on my kids though. Big Brother was halfway through kindergarden and Little Brother had always been at home with me.
What I found is that my kids like school, most of the time. They…Continue

Hi, it’s me standing on my soap box. Yes… again.
Moms make difficult decisions every day: Should I buy the generic diapers on sale or should I splurge on name brand? Breast or bottle? Is my child crying because he really needs something or is he crying because he’s a little fussy? Despite the unsolicited advice and lectures I have endured regarding my…Continue

In case you’re wondering why I look a little taller today, it’s because I’m standing on my mommy soap box. Check out Mommy DIY if you don’t want to read my statement, otherwise, read on.
I want to be a good mom, I really do, but I have no idea what I am doing! While I was pregnant I studied parenting literature, questioned other moms, and prepared myself for baby. Lately, people just tell me what to do when I’m…Continue

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 started perusing the internet and well, procrastinating, and came upon an article placing the blame for teenage obesity on moms, specifically improper toddler/mom bonding. The author vehemently wondered why all the blame is…Continue

I have a number of working mothers in my marketing department and several have arranged flexible work schedules to accommodate their changing work/life demands. Flexible work schedules are becoming much more common as employers recognize it as valuable tool for retaining their top talent and promoting work/life balance. In my department we have a number of different kinds of…
