I cover breaking news related to mismanagement of our yard, making mix tapes, being perpetually late, and breaking up a with a beloved daycare. All posts can be viewed here: http://ctworkingmoms.com/author/shawna/
I've been a big fan of the site since we moved here. I don't even remember how I discovered it...probably some random internet browsing brought me to the treasure trove of diverse, honest, ridiculous, hopeful tales of working motherhood. There's always something new to read and many bloggers mean exposure to an array of perspectives, all in one place. The overarching goal of the site and the women affiliated with is for a judgement-free motherhood. Coming from a family where judging is a recreational sport, I appreciate the approach of live and let live, and am trying to infuse more acceptance into my life. It can't hurt to try.
If for some reason you can't make it over to the blog site (summer time laziness?), here's a quick recap of recent news:
- Dave got a job! He'll be the Assistant Principal at the middle school in Berlin, CT. We are very excited for this new adventure, and thrilled he got a job a month after graduation. He is talented, driven, and has credentials for days, but I swear that guy's resume is dipped in gold.
- I'm taking an online graduate course, in urban planning. This is the first phase of my plan to go to grad school. It's a long time goal, and despite the challenges, I really want to get a formal education in planning, and am trying to make it happen.
- Summer! We've started going to the lake, eating watermelon, staying up late, and sleeping in. Yep, seems to be no need for an alarm anymore, because I flat out ignore it...who do I think I am? A school kid?
- We are going to Seattle in a few weeks for Becky and Vince's wedding. I'm both elated at the thought of a vacation, and dreading the cross-country flight with two kids. We learned lessons from our Austin trip, though, and will put those to the test. Plus, prosecco.
