It’s Our 4 Year Anniversary (& we have an awesome giveaway!) #Foxwoods

Sep 1, 2015 by

Today, Sept 1st of 2015 is CT Working Moms 4-year anniversary. On this day 4 years ago, after developing the site while out on maternity leave with my daughter, the site went live! I am so proud of how much we’ve grown over the years and that we’ve really become this little spot on the internet where you can come read out the reality of our lives in a non-judgmental space. All of our writers are phenomenal human beings and they make this space the loving, supportive place that it is. I really want to say a public thank you to all of them for being so courageous in sharing details of their lives with all of us. We’ve said for a while now that when we tell the truth about our lives it helps other people to realize they aren’t alone. And I’m so happy that each of us continually challenge ourselves to be more vulnerable in our writing.

Sibling Love

Aug 4, 2015 by

For the past 6-7 weeks I’ve been living with my friend (and fellow writer) Kriste as I wait to close on my new place. It’s been an interesting experience since both our kids are only children. I figured they’d probably get tired of each other pretty fast but to my surprise my girl has never, not once, gotten tired of being around her new “sister.”

I say sister because that’s what Lills (my daughter) calls Zoey. She walks around telling everyone about her sister, to the point that her daycare teacher asked me what was going on! It’s so, so cute (at least I think so, Zoey not so much, although I think it grew on her even if she won’t admit it!).

I’m about two weeks from finalizing my divorce and it’s been 6 months since we started this process. I’m not going to sugar coat it, this has been the hardest period of my life. Between navigating life as a now single mom, helping my daughter through all the changes, selling our family home, mediating our divorce and living in transition while we wait to close on a new place, I have experienced a multitude of emotions – anger, deep sadness, relief, confusion and clarity.

Hello there lovely mamas! We have a somewhat rare opportunity to add some new guest writers to the mix so we’re putting out an open call. As you hopefully know, we highly value kindness, compassion and non-judgment and we make every effort to write in a way that stays true to those values. So we’d ask the same of any new guest writers. We’d love to add some more diverse voices to our community so if you’ve got something unique about yourself or your family let us know!

5 Things That Suck About Parenting #Unfiltered

Jun 1, 2015 by

Alright, alright, I’m starting this post with the requisite I absolutely love being a parent and wouldn’t change that for anything. That is totally true – I love my girl more than anything in the world and would do anything for her. BUT – there are still some aspects of parenting that make me want to scream at the top of my fucking lungs. And we like to keep it real here.

Let’s get started shall we?! This list is in no particular order.

1. Baths. OMFG people I hate that I have to bathe or shower this kid. I hate it. Most days I hope that the fact that there’s bubble bath in the water means that she’ll get clean. If she dunks under once or twice we’re good. I also hate that I then have to clean the bath tub. No thank you.
