Breastmilk and Conference Calls… Hard Truth About Working at Home with Baby

WAHM=Work at Home Mom. But how much work does one get done when working at home with baby? I was one of the lucky moms who got to work from home. I got to contribute financially to my family, and at the same time spend precious time with my baby. Dream come true, right? Well, it’s much harder than it sounds.

BBC Dad | Parenthood Considered at Odds with Professionalism. But Why?

Unless you’re living under a rock (and maybe even then if you have wifi), you’ve seen the video of professor/dad Robert Kelly that went viral this week.
