“This month on the MyMommyVents blog, we’ve been taking a look at the moms who are juggling it all. You may look at them and think, “I bet she doesn’t have a pair of little boys dirty underwear in the middle of her living room floor.” Or, “She’s never gotten to work and realized one of her shoes is brown and the other is black.“
Last Friday, a group of New York city moms, bloggers, and supporters gathered to learn the “secrets” of multitasking women at MyMommyVents’ 2nd annual Mommy Vent panel discussion.
Over savory appetizers from TriniSoul Cooking, MyMommyVents readers were able to mix and mingle with other women while being inspired, empowered, and informed in signature MMV style.
Panelists Schnelle Acevedo of BrooklynActiveMama.com; clinical psychologist and fashionista at RealityTVFashion.com Dr Yakini Etheridge; and dynamic media practitioner and host of the CocoaPreneur Web Series on CocoaFab.com Khalilah Webster shared their insights on time management, motherhood, family, and “Claire Huxtable Syndrome” with the audience.
Fashion, self care, and reality television were just a few of the topics we discussed.
This year’s panel discussion was sponsored by the ultimate beauty guide for the modern woman, Sheen Magazine, who was generous to gift everyone with a copy. Urban Sitter, the online resource for parents to find and book babysitters recommended by people they know, provided us all with one month’s membership so that we could get out of the house for Sunday brunch with our girls or for date night with bae, and Gett, New York city’s newest black car app, donated $30 worth of rides to each MyMommyVents guest.
It was great to connect with so many of the women who read MyMommyVents each day.
Each woman learned that the panelists were just like them–moms doing the best that they can every single day. At the end of our discussion, everyone was able to recognize that anyone can be a multitasking mama.
I’m so excited to host next year’s panel–maybe even more often than once a year. Look out for more amazing events like this one by following MyMommyVents on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
