one of the many reasons why I love Mexico City - there are SO MANY DOGS everywhere 🙊 if you’ve been watching my insta-stories, you would have seen over 50+ dogs lying down in a row in the park 😍 (and also one pig 🐖) ✨ check out my highlights if you wanna see 😍🐕 #happyerin
I look forward to the day when I have my own family adventures - taking my kids on picnics at lakes, long drives through the mountains and exploring all Mother Nature has to offer - so they learn to appreciate this extraordinary place we call home.
Una plática placentera es cuando podes estar en compañía de tu esposo ♥️ y con un clima delicioso! 👏🏻🌟
By the way, you saw the face I’ve seeing my hubby 🙊
This would be sooo good for a day like today. I cannot stand the heat.
PSA: Score Pizza Rideau is having their grand opening event tomorrow (May 25)! They’re giving out free pizza and $5 beers all day!! Make sure to stop by if you’re in the area
We’ve been having such a great time in MTL. Spring has taken this city out of hibernation and you can feel the city buzzing with contagious optimism. We’ve had the chance to explore a bunch of neighborhoods (all with unique eye-catching style and vibes) and we were fortunate enough to get an “insider” tour (highly recommended) by @mynxbrom 🔥🙏 Currently posting this from an outdoor co-working space near Mile End @airecommune || just another reason to love Montreal 👌 #FacadeLovers#ChasingFacades#WindowsandDoors#MTLMoments
Naptime on the grandparents farm = work, rest, pecan butter tart and tea time! ☕
Prepping for an exciting meeting tomorrow with an organization interested in my business concept. Bringing the toddler and my preggo self along in full glory, so positive mindset, meeting objectives and a flexible schedule before and afterwards will be key. Also hoping I don't go into labour (35 weeks)! 🤞
I've brought my son to many traditionally adult-only events including:
💸 Pitching to a seed investor for feedback (while wearing him in a baby carrier)
📈 Presenting to and fielding questions from accelerator programs (in between feeding him snacks)
💼 Interviewing for a corporate mat leave contract (which I'm proud to say I was offered, happily accepted and recently completed)
📅 Business workshops about cash flow and income tax (wheeled him in stroller and all to the 7:30 a.m. sessions where I proceeded to feed him breakfast)
🎨 Creative Mornings Ottawa events (again, stroller and all to listen and be inspired) and the list goes on.
I will continue to compile these experiences as I build my business, because I believe that parenthood and professional development don't have to be mutually exclusive. 👶🤓 However, I also recognize that poop explosions, a lack of baby change facilities, snack supply shortages, distant parking facilities, cranky kids, inaccessible buildings, random rapid fire questions from said children and many more compromising and unpredictable scenarios are likely to happen in the lead up to, during and after each planned outing. But it's all part of the journey, I learn as I go and in the process my son gets to see me adulting, growing as an individual, embracing challenges and bringing him along for the ride. Plus I feel like a bad ass business momma and only recently at a women's breakfast networking event did I feel like I couldn't bring him with me. Luckily my lovely sister was with us so it was impromptu adventures with Auntie so I could still attend. 👊
Any and all ideas, tips, experiences (good and bad) are welcome! What have you done with your children to challenge norms, put aside fear and go for things you didn't think were meant for you?
