Consider this crazy idea…children want to be loved independently?!

December 5, 2014

I just gave myself and my oldest son the most amazing gift: a week long holiday together; just the two of us. We chose to go to London because he was born there and was also turning 6. It was important to me to share his birth experience with him now that he’s old enough More

When’s the last time YOU jumped in puddles?

November 10, 2014

We live in LA, and I can hardly remember the last time it rained prior to yesterday. This is bizarre for me because I grew up in Seattle, where it rains all the time I have been nostalgic for seasons, particularly the rain, absolutely craving every element it delivers: grey sky, sweaters, wet grass, and, More

It Happened…I Missed School Drop Off & Pick Up

September 18, 2014

My oldest son started Kindergarten. Actually, that’s not what created the pit in my stomach and the weepy eyes three days into the new school year. It was something else, and it was something that I’ve been dreading for a while. I knew it was bound to happen because I work full time, and the More

Do You Secretly Love To Travel For Work Or Do You Dread It?

July 23, 2014

I use to LOVE getting on planes. It almost didn’t matter where the plane was headed, I would settle in to my seat with a People magazine and away I’d go. Fast forward to life as a working mom with three boys at home, and I now have very mixed feelings about it.  Can you More

Wait! What Does It Mean To Be ‘Conscious Working Mama?’

July 1, 2014

When I was 7 months pregnant with my 3rd son, I decided I wanted more out of my life. I was feeling very stagnant. On a bit of a whim, I applied and was accepted to the University of Santa Monica. Two years later, I’m on the tail-end of receiving my Masters degree in Spiritual More

Is There Such A Thing As Boundaries When You’re A Working Mom?

June 13, 2014

“Just this morning, I was thinking about all that I accomplish in 24 hours. Most of the time, I’m incredibly thankful to be a working Mom in the 21st century for one main reason: flexibility. But with flexibility, I found, comes this crazy idea that I can cram in even more into my day because, More

Can A Working Mom Really Work From Home?

June 13, 2014

I get asked this question at least twice a week, and it goes something like this, “ How on earth do you get anything done from home?” Now remember, I’m an extreme case, because I have 3 boys, 5 years old and under, two of whom are still at home. We live in a modest More

How Do you Work The 2nd Shift?

April 24, 2014

Can you relate to this? You’ve put in a full day in the office, you’re rushing home to start dinner, and you really have to pee-but the second you walk into front door, you’re faced with a screaming toddler (or two or three) and a partner you have had a great conversation with in days….welcome More
