About 10 days ago I had the community meetup for Ovenderful Mom Bakers Community which is a 23,000 member healthy baking community that I started in November 2014.
As with most events, I almost always take my little ones along. My son has been at many events, presentations, client meetings with me. And now so is my daughter.
It’s not as effortless as it seems to hold a baby in one arm and speak about a variety of things particularly in front of many people. A baby is usually unpredictable and might decide to play with you in the middle of your talk. She might get unnerved with the crowd in front and cry. She might also decide to join the discussion by interspersing it with baby chatter. And you have to learn to smile through it. Even as your arm aches and the shoulder becomes frozen. Because you truly want to be in two places at the same time – with your baby and in the place you are speaking at. And you can make it work with such steps 🙂 but it’s never effortless. Never an easy way to do this. But always fun!
And because women play such versatile roles and many of them at that, let me share a healthy and super versatile snack.
