#MAMASONFYRE: it’s an amazing time to be a working mother. Companies are changing, recognizing they need to do more to be a part of the village mamas need to raise their kids (hello, flexible hours and great benefits). They are realizing that moms are more productive, and that moms can get so much more accomplished with so much less (that Fyre fest drama would have been HANDLED if a mama were in charge). Companies are slowly realizing that moms are a huge asset to have on the team, not a liability. And they are realizing that in order to attract top talent, they have to KEEP their top talent - even after we have kids. Everyone is catching on: Moms simply get shit done. I’m proud to be a part of a community (and company) that helps make mamas more successful. Are you a #workingmom? Tell me why you think now is the right time to be working while raising your family ⤵️

❤️ Hey @mikeonsaturn I know you don’t get instagram notifications because you turned them off because my account is also on your phone and it is annoying but I just wanted all my followers to know (😂😂) that I love you so damn much and I’m so friggin lucky to wake up next to your stinky face every stupid day. Thanks for being my guy, and for letting me be your girl. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Last year we had THREE birthday cakes and over 70 people for #lebébécourtien’s first birthday!! Yup, Ivy is a huuuuge deal 😂😻🙌🏽. This year won’t be as extravagant, but will definitely be a whole lot of fun! Can’t. Believe. She. Will. Be. Two. 😭 • • • • #motherhoodinspired#acupofmotherhood#slowmotherhood#realmotherhood#holdthemoments#purusehappy#lifeasmom#stopdropmom#mymotherhood#workingmom#workingmama#workingmother#ohheymama#inspiremothers#mommydiaries#lifewithlittles#wifelife#strongwomen#momssupportingmom#strongasamother#ig_motherhood#motherhood#magicofchildhood#uniteinmotherhood#candidchildhood#dailyparenting

Best day with this little nugget. We watched the Lions dance, spent time with cousins, and ran into an old friend, too. It was my first time eating in Flushing (I AM EMBARRASSED) and my first time at the Queens Botanical Garden! We found this spot on accident walking towards a different restaurant but honestly it was the happiest accident ever. Hope your Saturday was fun, too! Happy New Year #chinesenewyear#gunghayfatchoy ❤️🎊 🐷 🧧❤️

🚕 So this is definitely not actually Times Square (its a few blocks down but it was too cold and crowded) and also THIS IS MY FIRST EVER FAKE HAILING A CAB PHOTO! 12 years a New Yorker and I finally got one of these! How’d I do? 🚕 • • • • photo by @jphilzzz who memorably told me “don’t try so hard” 😂

I spend a lot of time here talking about my own journey as a mom. But today is this fancy lady’s birthday - so here’s to my own mother. The woman who would be prepping for a board meeting while frying chicken while doing laundry while planning our next vacation. The woman with FOUR KIDS and a full time job who still made dinner every night. The woman who makes every meal from scratch (wtf) and also gives me all the anxiety because she is always 20 steps ahead of me 😰🤣. Happy Birthday, Momster. I love you more than all your other kids love you so please remember that even though I’m not your favorite 😘

I’ve finally found my groove as a working mom. 😱✨🙌🏽👏🏽What that means for each mama is different, but here what it means for me • • I don’t feel guilty for leaving her on workdays to get work done anymore. 👍🏽I realize how she is thriving without me being there at every turn and how it’s about making the moments we are together count • • The apartment is not a disaster. 🧼 🏡 This is a big one. I wasn’t able to keep the place clean when I first started because I would be so tired by the time I got home but I created strong morning, evening, and weekend routines that I stick to like glue • • I am making our dinner 4-5x a week. 👩🏻‍🍳 This is another big one. I’m queen of the crock pot and planning ahead now - and it feels good to be able to save money and feed my family • • I am starting to make my own lunches too! 🥘 I always made hers, but I would order almost ever. Day. So bad. My goal for all of Feb is to bring lunch to work and only buy coffee or a treat if I badly need an afternoon pick me up • • #MOMLIFE looks different for everyone but my new season in life is finally starting to feel familiar. I’m getting into the groove and no longer upset about all the ways I’m missing out. Because I’m not actually missing out. I’m as involved as ever, and Ivy is still my bestie. That’s what matters, right? 🙌🏽💕

My hubby is sick right now 💔😭 but we still managed to have a great day on Saturday. Between colds and fevers and King Kong and a toddler, there’s no one I’d rather blow my nose next to than you, @mikeonsaturn 😂😘😇

My King 👑 The hardest part about being your friend is choosing a photo to encompass our friendship. I have never loved anyone like I love you and EVERYONE KNOWS IT. Happy Birthday to my number one, my always and forever, the favorite, the KING. Here’s to a million more. 🥰 @jphilzzz

Got to drop off this nugget at her day care this morning! Normally it’s only daddy who does it but I got to join in today. So much fun watching her roll through that morning routine like a boss. Also.... If anyone knows how to edit out the people behind us lmk 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 • • • • #motherhoodinspired#acupofmotherhood#slowmotherhood#realmotherhood#holdthemoments#purusehappy#lifeasmom#stopdropmom#mymotherhood#workingmom#workingmama#workingmother#ohheymama#inspiremothers#mommydiaries#lifewithlittles#wifelife#strongwomen#momssupportingmom#strongasamother#ig_motherhood#motherhood#magicofchildhood#uniteinmotherhood#candidchildhood#dailyparenting

So yeah this weekend was pretty great. Not only did we get to see an Off Broadway play but little miss over here started ballet lessons! It was honestly the best mommy & me weekend. I cried because I am who I am and dance played such a formative role in my life.... I met my best friend in the dance studio when I was 2! She did so amazingly, following the instructor and figuring out the new moves. UGH. 😍 . . . . #motherhoodinspired#acupofmotherhood#slowmotherhood#realmotherhood#holdthemoments#purusehappy#lifeasmom#stopdropmom#mymotherhood#workingmom#workingmama#workingmother#ohheymama#inspiremothers#mommydiaries#lifewithlittles#wifelife#strongwomen#momssupportingmom#strongasamother#ig_motherhood#motherhood#magicofchildhood#uniteinmotherhood#candidchildhood#dailyparenting
