I am posting this on a Tuesday morning, when I am 36 weeks pregnant, about to hop on a plane (leaving behind my husband with our 2 year old, potty-training daughter) so that I can fly across the country to chase down the biggest career opportunity I’ve been presented with thus far. Talk about walking the tight rope.
It’s impossible to be SuperMom. But some days we have to dust off the cape, give ourselves a pep talk, arm ourselves with kindness (mostly towards ourselves) and dive into life head first. This is one of those days. And for all you working mamas out there, I salute you.
Saralyn Ward is an award-winning writer, wellness advocate, and mountain mama. She is the founder of The Mama Sagas, writes for several publications and hosts a regular parenting TV segment on Colorado's Everyday Show. When she's not huddled over edits, you're likely to find Saralyn climbing peaks or skiing down them, and reminding herself that the two little girls that call her mom are not the boss of her.
