Supermama Unmasked

Jan 27, 2016 by

As an avid reader and lover of books, I am often found with my son at the library or bookstore one to two times a week. Sometimes it is for borrowing or purchasing and sometimes just browsing. As I was browsing the discount aisle at my favorite bookstore I noticed a ton of planners and calendars being that the New Year had just started. They had a planner for everyone and everything! (Clever marketing indeed!). The one that I was most upset about by is pictured here. It showed a cute mom and her adorable cartoon daughter on the cover and says Do It All Mom Planner. I laughed and picked it up. I saw that they gave you stickers, To-Do lists, tear off shopping lists and other additional features.

Need a Valentine? We’ve Got You Covered

Jan 21, 2016 by

Untitled

Some of us (cough, cough) will be alone on Valentine’s Day this year. Valentine’s Day is actually my FAVORITE holiday because I view it as a celebration of ALL the love in my life. The day doesn’t necessarily have to be tied only to romantic love. I love to remind everyone in my life how important they are to me and Valentine’s Day is an extra special day to do that!

As an extension of our Hug-O-Grams, you can order yourself a Valentine’s Day card that will arrive from one of our CT Working Moms writers with a special personal note. For free. For realz. We are a community and a community supports its members. Feeling down about not having a significant other for V-Day? Don’t fret! Let us lift you up and remind you that you are loved.

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.

Navigating Abuse

Jul 13, 2015 by

My inaugural blog post here was going to be an introduction to my life as a mom who is disabled and sometimes works, sometimes can’t, and who sometimes has a funny story to share about trying to chase small children from a wheelchair. But something is weighing on my heart, and I think it’s worth talking about. Baby Aaden lost his life last week, allegedly at the hands of his suicidal father, after his mother attempted and failed to get a protective order renewed for herself and her baby in the Middletown court system.

#DontHateNewEngland…reasons for winter-haters to love our home

Jan 28, 2015 by

I can’t pretend to like winter. I just cannot. Every year I try so hard to psych myself up for it…it’s cozy! There’s cocoa! And sledding! And all of that! But then it arrives, and I just cannot muster any fondness for it. Every single winter I ask myself (and my husband) why we live in this cold, cold place, where we have to stock up on supplies for a possible multi-day power outage (which thank heavens, didn’t happen…this time…) without heat or water. Why. Not. Move?
