The Working Mom’s Credo

As working moms we bear the burden of carrying our families on our backs. Indeed, this life is exquisite yet excruciating. Part of the reason it is so hard is because of the inequities at home and at work. While those inequities may make us weary, we can never give up.

Back to School Season!

The coolest kid in Kindergarten

My youngest kid is cool. This photo says it all. It was taken last year by his Montessori teacher. I found it on the class website. I have no reason why he was throwing up the deuces in a random class photo taken at his Catholic school. But there he is, in true, "I am being raised by people who know what's up" fashion.

The First Day of School is Coming

He, and his brother start school this week. I cannot believe that he'll be starting Kindergarten. I am surprised that I am emotional about it. It marks the end of an era. I have no more babies and I will have no more babies. From this time forward, I will be in child raising, child rearing, and child educating mode. The task now is preparing all of them for college and the real world. Where did the time go?!

I intend to post about the first day of school, our preparing for it, our executing it, and hopefully our enjoying it. That said, I wanted to share this photo of my youngest--the coolest kid starting Kindergarten this year. As the youngest, he often has to share. However, on this day, he has a post all of his own because he is staking his own claim on the world.
