Gah! Reader of the day Emilia has an awesome mom who's heading back to work next week. Coming home to this face every night is going to be pure bliss, @lindseyjpalmer! 😘💛 #fifthtrimesterbaby
When I was writing my book and thinking back on being two weeks postpartum and sitting on my couch crying, I realized for the first time how privileged I was...just to have that couch to sit on and a job to go back to. 25% of American working moms take less than 2 weeks of leave...because that's all they can afford. @roomtogroworg gives new parents in poverty the coaching and supplies and continuous support they need to give their kids a great start, from the 3rd trimester to the 3rd bday. I'm honored beyond belief to speak at Room to Grow's annual Power Breakfast alongside Deborah Roberts and @lvanderkam. Tix and sponsorship info are below... #Repost @roomtogroworg (@get_repost)

A lot of @mindrnyc babies stole my heart today, but I've got a special spot for this little lady, Ramona (and her mom Natalie, who dressed her in 💛💛💛). #thoseeyes #fifthtrimesterbaby
All the yellow hearts for @emilybarnacle! #1000 (and thank you, @darosales00, for sending so many awesome #thefifthtrimester parents I met today my way!)
The calm before the baby storm at my @mindrnyc event today...40 babies, 40 moms and dads, and many tears and gurgles (mostly from the infants!). This work is such a joy. Ps: Thank you to @wordbookstores for managing this 🏔 of 📒📒📒 and to @bumkinsbaby for the heartfelt support.
Wild fact: One day your baby will be old enough to want to iron his own shirt for the 3rd grade party! 🎈
Such an extraordinary honor to be interviewed for The UN Foundation's @globalmomschall. (📸 @nancyborowick, of course!). Link in bio!

We interviewed tomorrow's Mindr speaker Lauren Smith Brody of @thefifthtrimester for the UN Foundation's @globalmomschall blog, and you're going to want to check out what she has to say. In one of our favorite parts, Lauren talks about gender dynamics in the home: "This generation of men was brought up to want to share equally in parenting, but this generation of women was brought up to believe we should be able to do everything ourselves. These things fight each other, particularly when dad takes a shorter parental leave than mom does. Try not to let parental leave set up unequal parenting patterns. Make sure there are parenting duties that only your partner knows how to do (and you don’t!), and remember that your work at home – keeping a human baby alive – really IS work." Check out the rest through the link in our bio. #mindrmama (📸: @nancyborowick)
So excited for this one!

Tonight at dinner, we talked about the "days of awe," the 10 days at the start of the Jewish New Year when we take stock, and make amends, and look forward. This year, from a mountain. Thank you, @rupikaur_ for this perfect expression of hope.
Just me, @randizinn, and a mannequin! JK, the #beyondmom book launch tonight at @athletanyc was packed with so many incredible women entrepreneurs. On my way home to go manifest something, starting with a burger!
