Earlier this summer, I got my first real paid writing assignment. I've been writing for a long time, unpaid - if you call blogging writing and I do. Ironically, the writing assignment was for a magazine article in which working moms share tips on surviving modern parenthood. The irony stems from the fact that some might say I am not a "real" working mom, based on what I just told you about my amateur status. So what could I know on the topic? Now we all know the "Real Housewives" on TV are not real housewives either so this sort of label confusion thing clearly happens all the time.
Regardless of my status, there were very real working moms contributing to this piece; I am just the messenger. I want to thank all the moms who contributed to the article. Your insight and ideas were so helpful. Even while working and juggling your family, you took time to respond to my email requests and phone calls - truly a testament to how much moms value helping other moms. Thank you!
