Updated CV: CEM, Chief Executive Mum at Household Inc.

**Employers please see Resume/CV at the bottom Word to the non-parents: Maternity leave is NOT a holiday. Pre-baby I honestly thought maternity leave would be a nice break from work. I knew that it was going to be hard, but on the flip side I thought…..I wouldn’t have any projects or deadlines, I wouldn’t have to deal with…

Raise Your Hand and Stand Like Superman

I am LITERALLY sick and tired. Like many of us parents say, I did not know what tired actually meant until I had the baby. It is never-ending. I still haven’t had a full nights sleep since the baby was born 4 months ago, and it is not looking like I will for a very long time. On…

Out-smarting a 4 Month Old

You’d think as a 27 year old woman, with various degrees, working to become CEO of Google, I would be smarter than a 4 month old. However since the arrival of my son, I feel like he has been controlling my every move. And in reality, he has. I was reading a post on This Mum’s Life about how…

Stay Classy Link Party #7

My days have been FLYING by, some may ask, what have you been doing while you are on maternity leave?

Awkward Places I have got my Boobs Out

Breast-pumping or hand expressing is a big part of my life now, and as many people are completely unaware of this feat, I thought I would share how awkward it is to be a breastfeeding mother. I know, I know, I shouldn’t complain, it is a magical experience between mother and baby and I should…

Stay Classy Link Party #6

This week has been horrendous. I’ve been trying to study for an exam while my 3 month old “naps” AKA a 20 minute power hour where I frantically try and absorb as much information in 17 minutes and 20 seconds so I have 2 minutes and 40 seconds for a wee and an apple. It feels as…

Pump Up the Jamz

I love music. I have always been passionate about music and I believe it can make anyone, even on the lowest of low days, feel better. I’ve put together a list of songs that inspire me and make me feel happy, motivated and pumped for the day! Songs that make you want to climb Mt. Everest and be…

My Version of “Knocked Up”

Almost a year ago today I found out I was pregnant. And as you can tell from the title, my pregnancy was unplanned. VERY unplanned. I say ‘very’ with umph because in my heart of hearts I don’t think I was ready. I was still running around all freshman-year-of-college-like doing Jagerbomb Thursdays, sexting my boyfriend, thinking…
