Over the last few years it has been wonderful to watch my business and my family grow. Not only do I have a successful expanding business with my first baby, Green Hip, I also have a beautiful three year old girl who is the light of my life. I am also very pleased to announce our baby boy arrived last week! My husband and I feel so happy with the arrival of our son and while the Green Hip family is growing I’m enjoying as many cuddles as I can possibly get!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my husband and family for the wonderful support you have given me while I recover and thank-you Angie for holding the reins in the Green Hip office!
Now, as all working mothers know, trying to find the time to be a perfect mother, wife, sister, daughter and career women is no easy feat. The pressure we put on ourselves day in and day out to do everything is shocking. It is a struggle I deal with every day. We all want to watch our children grow and be there for every new experience but at the same time our careers are important to us and can’t be forgotten. This is a balancing act that many women face but the juggle can be done!
We working mothers must remember that we are strong, empowered and intelligent women who can do anything we set out minds to and surrounding ourselves with supportive and like minded people is a key part to managing both a business and family well.
To all the working mothers out there, we are women and like Helen Reddy says ‘I am strong, I am invincible, I am women’ and after my recent 36 hour labour I feel like I can achieve anything!
