We are starting this blog with a vision: Find a way to support attachment parenting (AP), working moms.
There are so many places out there that would have you believe that attachment parenting and having both parents working full time are two notions that are just not compatible. Mainstream media attention would have people believe that attachment parenting has that building strong attachment with your children is only possible if you follow a prescriptive list of rules, foremost of which seems to be that you must stay home with your children.
We know from our own lives and the lives of our circle of friends that this is simply not the case. There are countless parents out there working at the office and practicing AP at home. For many, working outside the home is not a choice they can make because the current economy has made it for them. For others, working outside the home fills a need they have to follow their own passions. Whichever path is your path, we choose to honor that and work within the parameters that life has given us.
We created this blog to offer support and information for moms who, whether by choice or circumstance, find themselves working in an office. We look forward to helping you find new ways to strengthen your bonds with your children and find balance between your work and home life by sharing our personal experiences…our journey as we conquer motherhood and corporate life.
On this blog you can expect to see articles about:
- Breastfeeding and pumping
- Frugal Living
- Gentle Parenting and Discipline
- Quick, easy, and healthy recipes
- Kid-friendly activities
- Family Organization
- Our favorite things
- and much more!
We are excited about the prospect of hosting guest articles from other working moms like ourselves who have found creative ways to make attachment parenting work in their own busy lives.
We welcome you to join us as we follow our paths. Thank you so much!
