The Thank You For Being a Working Mom’s Toolkit

Published Tuesday, May 03, 2011 5:56 PM

Mother's Day is fast approaching with its glitter embellished cards and kitchen-wrecking breakfast creations. The sweet offerings of children (often aided and abetted by dad) make motherhood worth it. What makes it possible is a whole other story.

 Working moms pull double-duty, managing both paying work and labors of love. Pulling it all off requires patience, planning and frankly, luck. Well this is your lucky-day: we've assembled a list of our go-to resources that every parent can use in a pinch. It's our "Thank You for Being a Working Mom" Tookit.

 Finding Child Care for Sick Kids: A Working Mom's Guide to Sick Kids:  Daycare for sick kids? Yup, it exists; here's how to find it before a little one's fever coincides with a can't-miss-meeting.

 Stress Management Tools for Parents: Stress-free working moms don't exist. Come to think of it, stress-free stay-at-home moms don't exist either. So moms, take a deep breath and read on for stress-busting tips, everything from parental date-night to effective time management tools to help keep stress at bay.

 Working Parents: A clearinghouse of information from leading web resource BabyCenter providing tips for working parents on topics ranging from childcare to managing mom-guilt.

 25 Parent Productivity Tools for Busy Moms, Dads and Kids:  Comprehensive list of productivity resources ranging from pet care to allowance trackers. Offers a productivity overhaul for virtually every aspect of family life.

 Mom Puts Family on Her Meal Plan: Healthy, home-cooked dinners every weeknight? You heard me right. This helpful article takes you through the planning process for dishing up dinner after work. And a new favorite blog Dinner: A Love Story  is a charming, nightly walk through healthy, foodie home-cooked meals made by a pair of working parents every night.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment

(it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a colleague who had been conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast simply because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this matter here on your website.

Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am

a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have developed some

nice practices and we are looking to swap strategies with other folks,

why not shoot me an email if interested.
