Textbooks and Toddlers

I began graduate school when my daughter was 3 months old. While I struggled with the idea internally, I didn’t think that in this day and age I would be met with external (and unwanted!) words that mirrored discouragement. These words came from men and women alike; the young and the older. These words did not take me off of the path I envisioned. It was the perfect time in my life to continue my education and explore my motherhood journey.

My daughter is now 20 months and I am graduating this spring with a Master of Public Administration (woo hoo!). I look forward to the next chapters of my blooming career and I hope that you will continue this journey with me.

Have you been met with resistance in deciding to embark on a demanding education or career move? How about words of encouragement?

Hello world! 2015 and beyond…

Happy New Year!

Welcome to a place where I share my musings, frustrations, fears, joys and more on the many hats I proudly wear. I am not a writer by trade or academics; I’m a woman who loves the beauty of words and how they paint life on paper (in this case your screen).

This blog is for us; ‘Millennial Parentals’. I decided to take my thoughts to a place where I can share the nitty gritty, a place where being a parent is not a compromise. Join me as I try to balance juggle (!) being a mom, wife, student and professional.

In this blog I will share my inner thoughts on it all. My words will ooze with wide array of emotions and yet, I am not here to offend or judge. My stories are shared with love.

I welcome comments, criticism, pretty much it all.

Thank you for tuning in!

P.S. Seriously, don’t be shy 🙂
