My oldest is in 1st grade and as type A as I am. It’s a real struggle to let him do it himself. Don’t worry he is a problem solver so he does them before I get home from work with the sitter and I have no chance to insert myself 😂

Lol. The struggle is real. Holiday arts and crafts projects and cookie decorating have reminded me just how bad I am at letting go of control

You are not the only one who has done this. 😔

What are the best things you did during pregnancy to feel better? Looking for any sort of treatments, diets, routines, supplements… whatever helped you. This is my 2nd pregnancy and it’s been so much harder than the first. I’m nearing third trimester and never got that 2nd tri glow/burst of energy. I’m exhausted, nauseous, have heartburn, IBS, constant sinus pressure, chronic cough. I’m considering acupuncture but never done it before. All suggestions welcome 🙏

Question for my Advertising Moms!

I recently came back from maternity leave after my first child. My team and bosses are super supportive, but I wish there was more support within the agency. For example, a Moms group to lean on for advice and support.

Do any agencies have Moms groups? If so, how do they support Moms transitioning back to work?
For those that don’t, what would you want from a Moms group?
