Happy New Year!
My name is Jen McGrath and I am a Wommy. What's a Wommy? A Wommy is a working mommy. Before we get any further, I want to make sure no one is offended. I know that stay-at-home moms are working moms and work incredibly hard. However, I'm going to be sharing my personal stories and experiences about balancing motherhood with a corporate job (8-10 hours a day), a commute, daycare, attempting to squeeze in a trip to the gym, etc. These are purely my stories and not meant to compare the pros/cons of moms who work at home versus outside the home.
That said - how was everyone's New Year celebration? As a mom of a six-month old baby (sweet baby girl Piper), I stayed at home, rented bad movies and ate pizza. Oh yes, times have changed. In fact, it was at a crazy NYE party at a hotel on Michigan Avenue in 2002 where I met my hubby, Ryan, also know as Piper's baby daddy. And you know what - I loved every moment of staying at home with Piper and Ryan. Well, maybe I didn't love the part where I had to change an explosive diaper, but the rest was pretty good. Yes, I may be getting old and boring, but I am okay with that.
Stay tuned for more stories in 2011. Now off to watch some football.
