How to get your career baby ready?

One of my daily pleasures is the walk the girls and I take to school, or nowadays to camp, in the mornings.

I used to be physically fit. I spent a lot of time in the gym. I ran road races and even finished a half-marathon once. I did yoga and walked almost everywhere, even up stairs. I ran up until my sixth month of my first pregnancy and got back out there shortly after she was […]
