Moms can make things happen!
At Jersey Family Fun we are often invited to amazing, family fun activities. It’s rare that we are able to step into an important adult conversation with other amazing working moms, but recently we did just that. Hosted by Chime by Sittercity, we were invited to a lunch at Sarabeth’s in NYC to speak with other bloggers, journalists, and women in the know about policies, parenting and more. Leading the discussion was Genevieve Thiers, mom of 4 year old twins and the founder of Sittercity.
If you haven’t heard of or used Sittercity, know that they are the pioneer in online childcare! You can find nannies, after school sitters, date night sitters and more through this trusted and essential website. They have served over 8 million members, provided free memberships to over 100,000 military families, not to mention given thousands of childcare providers access to paid work! The motivated and successful Genevieve Thiers didn’t stop there; more about her latest innovation, Chime by Sittercity, in a bit.
Our lively conversation covered mommy brain, childcare, women in tech and politics, and just how great Sarabeth’s food was (seriously, the velvety cream of tomato soup – wow!) But the discussions didn’t stop with the dining. We all gathered up our ideas and walked to the offices of Working Mother magazine to participate in a Facebook live chat with Jennifer Owen, the magazine’s editor in chief. These two working moms in the know shared some great information about the candidates and their policies on childcare and family leave. Watch below:

I returned home to the world of homework, hungry dogs, and crockpots that weren’t turned on, but was encouraged by the power of moms!
