Hello to our CT Working Moms family! It’s been about 3 years since we wrote our last post in 2019 announcing that we were ending the website after an amazing 8 years with you. At that time, priorities took us to other projects, and I think we were a little burnt out after writing for… Read More We’re Coming Back!
A little over three years ago I started talking to this guy. I had written a post on my Facebook page about a trip to the fair, and somehow it was decided between him and I that he would send it to his friend who wrote for a blog called CT Working Moms. He sent… Read More The End of Something Special
I have an excellent idea for a post. Tragically, that idea will go unused for tonight, because I lack the fortitude to battle my current state of exhaustion. This was a weekend known in this house as “drill weekend,” when DH spends both Saturday and Sunday up at the Guard base. I, in contrast, spend… Read More Home With the Kids: Make a “Got-Done” List
Last Friday, I had the opportunity to appear on NBC Connecticut with Melanie to talk about World Breastfeeding Week! The whole thing was pretty unreal.

As of today, I will have been writing a weekly blog post for CTWM for one year – and what a great experience it’s been!

I volunteered to take Kriste’s weekly post today, because she had a schedule snafu, and why not? Help a mom and blogger out, that’s what we’re all about. Only problem is that I’m a bit short on time myself. Blogging during the middle of the workday is hard, because, you know, work. But then, blogging… Read More Parenting In a Hurry: Three Tips to Save You Time and Make Life Awesome
I know we are all about to be inundated with Thanksgiving related gratitude posts (I’m not complaining, I love gratitude stuff!), but lately I’ve been thinking a lot about this blogging shindig. Sometimes we CTWM’s bloggers talk to each other about how hard it is to blog. I think it’s a common perception that blogging… Read More #ThankaBlogger
1. SOMETIMES YOU FEEL LIKE A NUT … I know Melissa just posted about this frequent CTWM topic, but it turns out that my three year old has food allergies. So my brain has been dwelling on her and the myriad forms I’m being required to fill out (for two separate school-day/child care programs).… Read More Five for Friday: Five Reasons I Have Writer’s Block Right Now (Hint: They Have Something to Do with Being a Mom)
Since the list format for blogging seems to be so popular lately, here is another stab I am taking at itemizing the jumbled thoughts in my brain into quick-fix entries that are at least loosely organized under a specific theme. This week: what are some of the many, many (many …) things that I’m no longer… Read More Parenting Reality: Five Things that Are Currently Not Priorities for Me
It’s Sunday night and I’m pretty sure every parent everywhere is thinking the same thing – how do we get up tomorrow morning and start our normal work day routine when we can’t stop thinking about the horrible tragedy that just occurred in Newtown? I have no answers other than to say that we… Read More We Have to Go to Work Tomorrow?
