Working Mommy Wednesday...

This week our Working Mommy Wednesday prompt is Thanks!

I have a rich and full life with lots of people and things I am Thankful for, so to narrow the field,  I decided to approach this as...

Things this Working Mom is Thankful For...
in no particular order...
  • Working in a building full of working moms who understand
  • Grandparents who understand our desire to always have our children with people who love them...and who have bent over backwards to help us achieve that goal
  • Coffee
  • A husband who understands my (infrequent) ranting and raving about working and thoughts of being a stay-at-home-mom
  • My husband's schedule which allows him to be a 75% stay-at-home-dad
  • Email and my iPhone
  • Friends who meet me at the gym at 5:00 in the morning so working out can be social also
  • Being a my work schedule is compatible with my children's school schedule
  • Friends who organize Girls Night Out
  • Having a second income, which allows us opportunities that we wouldn't otherwise have
  • Wine
  • Fantastic, amazing, wonderful children 


  1. What a great list of wonderful things to be thankful for :)
    Have a super great day!!

  2. Wine and Coffee...sigh.

    I didn't realize until my friend cancelled yesterday how much I was looking forward to girl's night out! Hopefully next Tuesday will be easier!

  3. I need to go back and add coffee to my list!

    Stopping by from Working Mommy Wednesday, have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Great list! Love the first two! Grandparents and other working moms... Ah...

  5. Couldn't agree with your list more. Especially about having grandparents that understand! Have a great Turkey Day!

  6. Great post! :)

    Girls Nights Out are wonderful! Much as I love spending time with my husband and family, I do so look forward to nights with my friends, where I can let my hair down and have FUN!! (Dancing round handbags and catching up on all the goss is a great way to unwind!)

  7. great list!! so many things that I, too, should be thankful for!! happy thanksgiving Jen
