Bio: Marie and her husband are enjoying all of the fun and exciting things being a parent has to offer, thanks to the Valentine’s Day arrival of Jacob Michael Schweitzer on February 14, 2011. She has been keeping up as best she can post-baby with my running, baking, and sewing. Now, the running, baking, and sewing is done between nap times, with Jake strapped into the Baby Bjorn, or jumping around in his new favorite, the Jumperoo. She says it’s funny that the baking is now making pureed veggies in the Beaba, the sewing is diaper bags and play quilts, and the running is done with an iPod shuffle on one side, and the baby monitor on the other while on the treadmill. Oh, yes, and she works full-time as a lawyer for the House Republican Office in the Connecticut General Assembly.

Tip for Other Working Moms: “Motherhood is a funny thing. Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where all you can do is throw up your hands and just go with it. You learn to accept things, and you learn to laugh at the irony of it all. I love that this blog puts it all out there- the good, the bad, and the funny- because you just gotta enjoy the ride.”
