  1. I read the p’ost about working mom’s who work in the goverment, and it was VERY interesting. I hope to be a working mom soon, tho I need to get married and have a baby first. The other blog is very focused, Kat, and you have a nack for writing great blogs on the topic. I hope to be able to help out on that blog site as soon as I am a mother.
