Hi all, just wanted to welcome you to the Working Moms Support Blog. This is a new interface that we are trying in lieu of face to face lunch and learns, knowing that so many of you are trying prioritize your work, your homes, activities, families, etc.
This is a forum where we can openly and respectfully discuss concerns, problems, ideas, questions and thoughts about everything from infants to elders, work and family, and all life's other components.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your time, advice and expertise with us!

I know this post won't apply to you all but for those of you who are new moms, or just returning to work after having your baby, or have a colleague needing a clean, private, safe space to pump, I just wanted to remind you that we have several (24 to be exact) lactation spaces here on OSU's main campus. To view the list, you can visit http://hr.osu.edu/worklife/lactationrooms.pdf and if you would like to establish a lactation space in your building, don't hesitate to contact me and we can work through the details!!

Hello Fellow OSU Mom's :)
Is anyone else out there dealing with a child with dyslexia? I recently found out that my eight year old daughter has this diagnosis.
This entire process of educational testing and setting up an IEP with the school has been emotional & trying for my family.
When my daughter becomes frustrated she has an emotional response or she completely shuts down and wont try.
Is anyone else going through this and what has worked?
I look forward to your feedback & suggestions.

I plan to enroll the six year old in a few weeks of camp so that he can have some structured, enriching experiences, but mostly, I'd like him to experience a bit of the "lazy summer" I have such fond memories -- sleeping in, riding bikes, going to the pool.
Ideally, I would love to hire part-time (three days a week). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to hire a sitter?

I was just talking about RAISING GIRLS with a fellow OSU soon-to-be working mom. She is determined not to raise any prissy, ready-for-princely-rescue offspring, and I remembered the "Anti-Princess Reading List." I'm posting it for all, courtesy Mommy Tracked.
(this is my first blog post ever, so I hope the link comes through...)
