So just when I finally gathered the courage to start the sleep training process, and succeeded in getting the baby to fall asleep in his crib during his naps, he woke up with a terrible cold and cough. And so once again children teach us that life is always unpredictable. Back in the swing we go until everyone is feeling better.
Ok, I’m sorry about the title. I couldn’t resist. It just felt too perfect. Moving on…
It seems that I only blog once every two years. I was shocked to see that some people were still reading my old posts. So I’ve decided to revive my blog, this time with two kids and a full time career. I’m in my mid-thirties;the digital revolution is sprinting past and I refuse to be left behind. The goal is to write, promote and maybe even podcast. These are grand dreams for someone who barely has time to go to the bathroom in peace. Time will tell how far I get.
The focus of my blog will continue to be motherhood and career. It’s something that’s become a major focus over the last few years thanks to the likes of Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter. Can I have it all? Should I lean in? What does having it all even mean? And how far should one lean in before falling over and crashing? These are grand discussions. What I really want to know is how parents manage going work after months of sleepless nights with a new baby? I’d also like to figure out how to motivate myself to become fit again. I’m always healthiest when I’m pregnant because I have gestational diabetes. But as soon as those babies are out, the slide backwards begins. These topics and many more still to come.
I hope you’ll keep reading and tell me what you think.
