A Peek Into the Life of a Working Mom: At the Playground in Stilettos

After work yesterday I grabbed the toddler and went to the Post Office . Tis the season for preschool applications and I had one that I wanted to mail yesterday. After the Post Office I decided to stop at the playground . Even though it was overcast it was over fifty degrees in Pittsburgh , a veritable heat wave. The toddler loves the playground. It’s like swinging is in her blood or something. She can go back and forth all day long. It’s probably because we relied on the swing so heavily when she was an infant.   I swear, our Fisher-Price swing was the secret to my sanity as a new mom. If you’re pregnant, buy one. Working moms have to be flexible if they want to do it all... The funny thing about the trip to the playground is that I went in my work clothes.

A Working Mom Has What Rachel Zoe Craves!

Rachel Zoe is a celebrity stylist. Some of her previous clients include Nicole Richie , Demi Moore and Cameron Diaz .  Some people criticize Rachel Zoe for her weight. Some may even call her vapid.  However, even among her critics it is widely accepted that she is a force in fashion and considered to be one of the premier stylists. She even has her own reality TV show called, "The Rachel Zoe Project". I tend to like her style. The big glasses, long pants and big hair appeal to me.  Also, Rachel Zoe is a mom. And if you haven't noticed, I hold all moms in high esteem. I consider myself to be a relatively stylish person. However, I am a realist. I am a little Black girl from Rochester, New York , which is not necessarily known as fashion forward.  I now live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania , which is widely known for football, food, and fun.  However, it is not generally discussed in the same breath as Manhattan , Milan or Paris  when it comes to fashion, not even by
