Yolanda: “I bring my four-month-old to business meetings all the time. I cradle him with one hand while contributing to meetings. When he lets one rip into his diaper, I simply tie it into my presentation. Being a working mother is so simple. I barely ever need to tranquilize him.”

Carrie: “Some moms like to lounge around in yoga pants and sweatshirts. Not me. I get dressed up in my business suit and sit down the kitchen table with little Persephone every day at 9am sharp. While she sits in my lap, I talk to clients and fiddle around in Excel. Persephone loves the sound of my typing. I do it with one hand. It’s easy. I was fired two days ago.”

Madeline: “I’d rather not show my face as my boss doesn’t know I have kids, but I too find being a working mom very straightforward. Little Aiden will sometimes cry when I’m on the phone, but that’s just his way of supporting me. I don’t need any help. My advice to working moms is to put your hair in a bun, wear a collared shirt, and don’t forget to smile through it all.”

Molly: “I’ve never understood why some working moms put their children in daycare. I bring Ryder to work with me. Every day he sits, sockless, on my desk. I’m an expert at typing with only my left hand which leaves my other hand free to provide excellent childcare. My advice for working mothers is to dress their babies in overalls and to sit by a window.”

Heather: “I’m a busy professional, but I don’t let that get in the way of my #1 job- being a mommy. My three-month-old Sam sits in the crook of my arm every day and I wouldn’t have it any other way! While I go over papers and participate in conference call, he drools onto my forearm and I am so thankful for that. I’m 100% ok.”

Your job is to sleep like the heaviest rock.

Tonight I would like a piece of that bootie.
