My toddler likes to make appearances. My coworkers have learned that if they schedule a meeting before 9 or after 4, it will likely be accompanied by one of my children. It's just the reality of working mom life.

AMEN to that, Leshelle!
Laarni Dacanay

SAY IT LOUDER, Leshelle! Yes, building relationships across ALL press is open for everyone. Do not limit yourself or ourselves.
Elena Bosch
