About the Mamas

Corporate career women by day, attached mamas by night.  We want to have it all!  We started this blog to help support other working moms who might be struggling, like we do, to find the balance between motherhood and climbing the corporate ladder.  We want to show the world that it’s possible to practice attachment parenting and work full time outside the home.  We want to help other moms find ways to make attachment parenting work for them in their hectic lives.

Cynthia

Cynthia, a Texan, is married to a wonderful Navy Reservist, has two amazing children, and two dogs (one annoying and needy, the other super laid back).  She works full time in a corporate job and owns a wedding event planning business in beautiful Camarillo, CA.  She loves all things romantic, beautiful, and expensive (who doesn’t, right?).  In her free time, she spends it with her family doing different activities and exploring the world.

Brynn

Brynn, a native Mid-Westerner with California roots, currently lives in the Chicago suburbs with her wicked smart toddler, sweet hubs, and two terriers. Besides being a mom, She spends 50+ hours per week with her other dream-job at a Fortune 500 company so her husband can stay home to raise their daughter. If sleep didn’t get in the way, Brynn would spend every moment cooking new recipes, sewing little dresses, restoring her 1927 Craftsman home and teaching her daughter new songs. You can read about Brynn’s adventure in exploring yummy, easy meals for other working families at her blog Working Mommy Recipes. Enjoy!

  1. I would love to hear more about how you handle leaving your children everyday to go to work.

  2. i like reading about different parenting styles… we like taking what works for us from all the different styles.

  3. I’d like to read about making the decision to have kids when you have a steady job. I feel like a lot of couples try to “wait” for the right time in their careers. Any thoughts on this?

    • You know this is sort of interesting. I hadn’t really thought much about this until I read this question but maybe I have a unique perspective. Not many people have the experience of having children at different times in the career….but I do..lol. I am a physicist with a 19 year old and a 1 year old. When I just started out, I felt a ton a pressure since most college grads didn’t seem to have kids and were always available. Now that I’m older, I stress because I have so much more responsibility and I need to put in more time to take care of it. So, sure you have to consider you’re career but I wouldn’t let it be big driver. Just my unsolicited two cents I’ve learned. 🙂

    • Hi Donna! Stay tuned as we have some different DIY posts coming in the future. Are you interested in cooking, crafts, etc?

  4. I recently contemplated having a personal boudoir photo set taken of me. Being a mom of age 34 I’m not sure if it would be appropriate for someone like me to do that. What are your thoughts?
