Welcome to NEWS MOMS!

Welcome to our blog!!! We're a couple of working moms in the TV news business who want to share our experiences about working, mothering and how the two connect. Hopefully it'll be as entertaining for you as it is cathartic for us.

I don't know about your office, but here it seems not a day goes by that -- between covering the day's news -- we don't have a conversation about the triumphs and tribulations of working motherhood. What's unique about this blog is how often two of the most important areas of our lives overlap, and sometimes we find ourselves reporting ABOUT ourselves:

* child care
* health issues
* women in the workforce
* education

We're constantly and increasingly finding that many of the stories that cross our desk are about US!!!

So here's a forum where we can share -- and hear from you -- about what matters, what's important, what makes us laugh, what makes us cry, what we don't understand and what we hope to accomplish -- as journalists and more importantly, as mothers. I think you'll find that you don't have to be in the news business at all to identify with the thoughts and experiences we share.

We're excited about connecting, and hope you enjoy the journey.
