Typically when I head over to the WGHP Fox 8 studios to appear on the Mommy Matters segment of the Morning Show, I set my alarm extra early so I have time to blow dry my hair, add extra makeup and pick out something nicer to wear. That's because when I'm not headed out for a TV appearance or face-to-face meeting, I work at home. At home, I can throw on jeggings, a t-shirt and a little eyeliner, and then let my hair air-dry.
But this morning, I had the opportunity to talk about how parents can move toward realizing their goal of working from home as a means to balance career and family. So, I decided I should wear pajama bottoms and slippers paired with a conservative black top and pearls. I thought the combination would be a great way to illustrate the topic. I've never been more comfortable or at ease on set. Was it the pajamas? They helped. Was it the topic? I do love working from home and am an advocate of doing do, so the topic was easy to discuss. Was it the opportunity to hang out with Cindy Farmer for a few minutes. That was certainly a perk, as well.
