Chronicles of a Working Mom: When Your Son Gets Staples in His Head While you’re on a Business Trip


Hubby routinely accuses me of joyfully whisking off to business trips because, rightly so, sometimes they feel like mini-vacations. Hotel rooms are like spas to working mothers. You can pee without people sitting in your lap, you’re only responsible for wiping one person, and you wake up with the same number of people in the bed as when you fell asleep. I have been notorious for jumping on planes and telling my family “see you…

This Mom Ain’t Afraid to Ask for Help


Why do we have three kids? I mean, Hubby left this morning for a business trip, and I had no other choice but to spend my morning arranging support for the week.

A True Working Mom


I normally don’t post pictures that I don’t personally take, but this one made me so proud. European Member of Parliament, Licia Ronzulli (an MEP from Italy), took her seven-week old daughter, Victoria, to work at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. [It was not a ‘Take-Your-Child-to-Work’ event.] She kept her baby carefully cradled against her in a wrap and occasionally leant to kiss her on the forehead. This photo was taken as she voted on…
