Twitter Love! What’s YOUR Handle?

Sep 24, 2015 by

In case you haven’t noticed, our CT Working Moms Twitter page, CTWorkingMoms, has been a little bit chatty lately.  Yep.  I’m doing some stand up over there throughout the day.  You know, a favorite here, a re-tweet there, and occasionally, a picture of a giraffe hanging out the back of my SUV.  YOU KNOW, the USU.


I tweet on the regular under my personal handle, Marie5k, but now I’ll be helping to spread the MOM LOVE via Twitter .  If you haven’t looked us up in a while over there, I suggest you do!!  Give us a shout out, tweet us a picture of you and your kids picking apples, making a mess in the kitchen by trying a new family-friendly recipe, or just a simple HEY!!  We’d love to hear from you!!

True Confessions: I bought my kid’s old clothes back at a consignment store

Mar 6, 2014 by

After last week’s post about my not so secret obsession with Twitter, it should come as no surprise to you that I got my inspiration for this week’s installment from Twitter.  And, with this week marking #moms4moms day on March 4 with The Bump and CT Working Moms encouraging judgment free mothering, as well as allowing moms everywhere to air their true confessions, this post could not be more timely.  Here’s how it started…

One day last week, celeb Jeri Ryan tweeted this:

Mom Tweets

Feb 27, 2014 by


If someone asked my pre-kid self if my Twitter feed would be loaded with mom celebrities, diaper companies, and witty posts from the Honest Toddler, I’d laugh in their face.  If pressed further, if someone asked me if my tweets would be discussing #momproblems and not pics of a hot new bag I just bought, I’d still be laughing.  But, funny, that is now my reality, and I’m laughing over here at it.


Here’s the thing- being a mom is tough.  Sometimes being a mom is so ridiculously tough that you find yourself on the verge of laughter instead of tears, because really, sometimes there’s just nothing you can do about a situation but laugh.  And tweet about it, of course.  Finding an outlet for #momproblems helps to not go insane.  And that outlet, is Twitter.  Seriously!  If you don’t believe me, get yourself a Twitter account and start following some of my favorite moms.  You will find yourself scrolling your Twitter feed and randomly laughing to yourself (or out loud) throughout the day.  And when you’re feeling bold enough, throw your own tweets into the mix.  I guarantee you’ll strike a chord with another sister mother out there who will be glad you tweeted what you did.  You may even get a retweet or a favorite!

This is a shout out to all you online Moms out there. You, answering a first time mom’s question about whether her toddler’s cough is normal or if it’s time to see the doctor. You, offering advice at midnight to an inquiring mom 1,000 miles away about how to soothe mastitis. And yes, you too, sharing that kick ass deal that you saw on Zulily with other penny-pinching Mommas. My hat’s off to you.

I was 35 years old when I had my daughter. I had zero baby experience and although my daughter was planned, I never considered myself exceptionally maternal. Long story short, I was active on Twitter during my pregnancy and through the miracle of hash tags, discovered a slew of other women who were pregnant. We all “followed” each other, and one of these ladies had the brilliant idea of creating a Facebook page where we could “meet” and guide each other through the highs and lows of pregnancy. We compared experiences, asked questions. Three years later, and a handful of these women have become my IRL friends. They live all across the country. And we’re all pretty different, with slightly different parenting styles. We send cards, gifts, make phone calls, text constantly, share kid videos. I even met up with one of these wonderful women in Washington, DC – a halfway point for us – to run a half marathon. (Bless our husbands’ souls for sitting across from each other at a pre-race dinner arranged by a couple of kooky ladies.)
