I’m a single mom, and I work a low-wage job, but I know I am not alone because two-thirds of low-wage workers are women, and many U.S. households depend solely or heavily on the income of a working mom. I’m here to share my #NoShameParenting story on how judgement runs thick for me and thousands of women like me.
A funny, but really awesome thing happened a few months ago when I stood on stage in front of a crowd of strangers and shared my motherhood story. I finally found my voice.

Last week I had the opportunity to chaperone my son’s field trip to the Farmers Market. It was such a fabulous experience for all of us. My first stop was the library, I decided to grab some books for the kids about the Farmers Market and fresh food. The librarian was very helpful. I left with four books, ready to tackle the K4 and K5 field trip.
