If you are a working mother, please take a few minutes to read my thorough list of things you need to do ASAP! You do NOT want to run the risk that your employer looks at you as a corporate-ladder-climber with a lot of potential – that only leads to bigger paychecks and longer titles.
Instead, be sure you get the “on mommy track” stamp as soon as possible. It is important that you get bypassed for promotions, recognition and other corporate celebrations because once you are a working mom there is simply no turning back. Clearly you are only part of the job force to be able to pee alone and eat your lunch in peace and quiet.
Follow my proven 15 step program to let everyone know that you are a mom first and foremost. All of these should be completed within the first two week timespan for the full effect!
1. Bring PB&J sandwiches for lunch – on white bread with the crust cut off.
2. Carry documents into a meeting in a LEGO Chima folder.
3. Sign your name with a purple crayon that you pulled out of your purse (along with a pack of baby wipes, two diapers, a ziplock bag with crumbled goldfish, a bouncy ball, a hairy pacifier and an old Dora toothbrush)
4. Wear suits with snot wiped on your left shoulder and at knee-height on your slacks.
