I call BS on anyone who asserts that we must abandon our personhood for motherhood. They can and should coexist.

The choice to start or expand a family will, without question, have the largest impact on the mother's career.
Being a mom is really hard sometimes and I feel like it's important to say it in these times when it is and feels especially true.
There really isn’t a great, non-awkward way of telling a stranger you see kicking ass at being a parent that they are kicking ass at being a parent.
I rely on coffee the way I rely on my car, my shower, my refrigerator: to make my life infinitely easier and functional.
