Network.  Build connections.  Its not always what you know, but who you know.    These adages are well known in the workplace and equally if not more important for the job of mom.  Before I had kiddo one, I bought a handful of books on being a working mom.  An overriding theme in all was to invest time and prayer  in building your network of support: caregivers, cheer leaders, sanity savers.   A wealthy working mom is not measured by her bank account balance but by the depth of her support charts.  Now that we are enjoying kiddo two, it is proving all the more true.  I am so thankful for each person that makes up the “village” encouraging little Carmans!
