Honoring Motherhood

Women-authored submissions to scientific magazines have declined significantly since the start of Covid-19. Are you asking why? Hahahahahahahaha. C'mon, we're all doing about quadruple duty. As one woman said in an article in Lily, "My husband takes care of our son during defined times. I take care of my son… always and forever."

I've been a working mom my entire adult life. It has always felt like a house of cards, with childcare being the bottom card on which the edifice of my life is built.


Now that card has been pulled for many of us. No wonder we're feeling overwhelmed, bored, restless, exuberant and angry. Oftentimes on the same day!


Well, mama, I'm with you. If your kids are still breathing, I say you're doing a damn fine job.

I will continue to offer tips, tricks and laughter in our private Facebook Group: 100%THATMOM. All of you are welcome to join! It’s a place to vent, show support and get that cheer-leading that you need.


Mother’s Day should run for the entire month of May, IMHO. As my small gesture of respect and solidarity, I'm offering you 15% off the ENTIRE Farm&Oven website. Use code MOTHERSDAY from today, Tuessday, May 5 through this Sunday, May 10.


I only do this type of sale once or twice a year. Sending love to you and yours. Hang in there.


Warmly,

Kay
