I was not one of those “glowing” pregnant women.  Not even close.  The only potential for glowing would have had to come from the millions of highly combustible particles orbiting my miserable, furious, fat head.

My pregnancy gave rise to the greatest joy of my life, but the months up to the arrival of my son were the most stressful I have yet to experience.  Little man is now turning 2, which I hear means I’m in for a world of hurt in the very near future.  As of this moment, however, pregnancy was the hardest thing I’ve been through, both physically and emotionally.

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.

Why Can’t Our Leaders Be More Like Kids

Dec 11, 2015 by

21-2016ers1

Last night I attended my son’s middle school concert. Kids from the band, orchestra, and chorus performed Christmas, Chanukah, and African songs in celebration of the Holidays. As I watched the 7th and 8th graders make their way on and off the stage, I was in awe of the diversity of the student body. As a school and a district, I truly believe that is our greatest strength. Our kids have the rare opportunity to learn about different cultures, religions, and lifestyles in a non-judgemental environment that welcomes everyone equally. And I wonder, why can’t our country, as a whole, be more like that.

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.
