I owe you all an update.
From the photos and the baby product reviews that I've posted, you've probably learned by now that I'm a mom with twins, so yes, that's new, but I haven't shared what I've been doing professionally these days. Although technically I did do that one post about my new bosses.
I chose not to return to WWE after my maternity leave. With twins it didn't make sense for us. The boys were only 2-months-old and it was not the right time. I returned for a week to help transition my role though, but with the babies still waking up in the middle of the night then, I felt like a walking zombie.
Yet, being home full-time wasn't a cake walk either, especially being cooped inside all winter. Luckily, I now have the best of both worlds. I'm working from home as an independent PR contractor and Social Media maven for several clients. I clock around 20hrs a week. I have a nice woman who helps me during the day so I can work upstairs from 11a-5p (minus when I have to step away to help with feedings, etc.) and I then log-on again after the boys go to sleep at 10 p.m. -- like I'm doing now. I'm also able to blog more and attend the during the day media events that I always had to pass on while at an office. I also started TOTRunway.com, which has been fun writing for.
Plus, in between pitching and calls, I get to play with these two happy guys, who get so excited when I re-enter the room:
So, that's that. Hopefully I can make a real go of it. Wish me luck!
