Mother's Day Reflections (#CorporateCulture)

I was blessed with an idyllic Mother's Day. It began with a breakfast prepared by my family, which included presents. A few hours later, we got ready for the day and had a wonderful brunch at Capital Grille. We also visited my mother-in-law, who I like. So, by all accounts, my day was epic!

On Monday, I went to work early, worked an extended day and went to the grocery store. It was the day after Mother's Day that got me thinking about the state of the working mom in America and helped me appreciate the dichotomy between our exaltation of mothers and the lives working moms. My hope is that this past Mother's Day motivates a conversation in this country about what working mothers truly need and that we see real change.

Thinking About a Disney Cruise? Disney Wonder Launch Party is EVERYTHING! #DisneySMMC

Cruising is an ideal vacation choice for working moms because you can book it and just wait for the fun to begin. We went on a Disney cruise last winter and had a great time. It started with an amazing launch party!

Working Mom Tip: Organize Your Car (#PrimpMyRide)

My ride #PrimpMyRide

Working moms are in search of tips to make their lives easier. One thing that we all tend to do in our increasingly busy lives is to spend lots of time in our cars. Without proper planning, our cars can get really messy. Indeed, early this AM I was cleaning out my own car so that it looks like an automobile a scarp book/garbage can.

A Book Review: Back To Work After Baby

Back to Work After Baby Lori K, Mihalich-Levin is a book that gives advice to working mothers returning to the work. It gives it to mamas raw and honest. It doesn't try to sugarcoat it and some moms may be grateful for it. However, for moms who want more and crave hope at the end of the mundane tunnel, it may fall flat.

Before concluding that the author failed to achieve her goal, keep its purpose in mind. 

The book says describes its purpose as "How to Plan and Navigate a Mindful Return From Maternity Leave". 

So, it is really a textbook.
