Being a mom is never easy no matter how you slice it. Being a working mom is no exception. Daycare or not, working from home or not, part time, full time, there’s no magic formula for balancing work and family.

A photo of a very special working mom going viral right now has us hopeful that more employers will do their part to accommodate their employees who are trying to strike that balance.

The sweet photo was taken at Maryland Farms Chiropractic, in Brentwood, Tennessee. When the owner of the practice, Dr. Elizabeth Baker, happened to walk by the front desk, she just had to snap a photo of this heartwarming scene and share her message with the world.

Workin' mamas.????She makes it look easy. It helps that Baby Nora-Jo is so sweet and content just being with and near her…

Posted by Maryland Farms Chiropractic on Thursday, 13 December 2018

As she takes a phone call while cradling her tiny, adorable daughter, Melody Blackwell, the practice’s billing specialist, is shown enjoying a peaceful moment in which she seems to have found that perfect family/work balance.

When the photo was taken, Blackwell had just returned from a 3-month maternity leave only a little while earlier. Blackwell now works from home four days per week and comes to the office, with baby Nora-Jo in tow, once each week.

Nora-Jo, Dr. Baker said in her post, is a “sweet and content” baby, and her mom “makes it look easy.”

She also encouraged social media users to share the photo to help make an important statement: “We need more small and large businesses to see this is doable and should be allowed more often! The newborn months are so short.”

Dr. Baker, looking to be as accommodating as she could be, first proposed that Blackwell work from home and be allowed to bring Nora-Jo to work once a week so she could be there for weekly staff meetings:

“Once she got pregnant I knew we needed to figure out a way to make this work,” Dr. Baker said in an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle. “We had nine months to plan, at least!”

“I was excited when she said that [working from home] was a possibility,” Blackwell shared with Yahoo. “I didn’t know if it would be.”

If Dr. Baker hadn’t been flexible and determined to retain her valuable employees, Blackwell would have had limited options. “I knew it was going to be hard for me to leave her when she was so young,” she said.

Blackwell knows for sure how blessed she is, and she sympathizes with moms who don’t have this same opportunity and have to utilize childcare so soon after birth: “I know it’s hard to drop them off at daycare when they’re just 2 or 3 months old.”

New York Court Tells Woman to Get Rid of Confederate Flag Garden Rock or Lose Her Daughter

A New York court has ruled that a woman must remove a rock painted with the C.S. flag or officials would come in and take her child away.

A New York court has ruled that a woman must immediately remove a garden rock painted with the Confederate flag or jack-booted state officials would come in and take her child away. The ruling was handed down Thursday by the appellate justices in Albany who warned that if the woman didn’t remove the rock in her yard painted with a Confederate flag, then she risked a “change of circumstances” in the custody of her multiracial daughter, the Times Union reported. In its unanimous, 5-0 ruling, the judges learned in a state “fact-finding” mission that the woman had “a rock with a Confederate flag painted on it at her home.” Justice Stanley Pritzker, who authored the appalling, fascist-like decision, decided that the woman who owned the rock simply must be a raving racist who is a danger to her own child. “Given that the child is of mixed race, it would seem apparent that the presence of the flag is not in the child’s best interests, as the mother must encourage and teach the child to embrace her mixed race identity, rather than thrust her into a world that only makes sense through the tortured lens of cognitive dissonance,” Pritzker wrote. Pritzker went on to say that since they think the woman is a raving racist, she has no First Amendment rights. “Further, and viewed pragmatically, the presence of the Confederate flag is a symbol inflaming the already strained relationship between the parties,” Pritzker added. “As such, while recognizing that the First Amendment protects the mother’s right to display the flag if it is not removed by June 1, 2021, its continued presence shall constitute a change in circumstances and Family Court shall factor this into any future best interests analysis.” Outrageously, the only evidence that this woman was racist was…

Biden’s Rambling Train Story was Filled with False Statements

Last week, when Joe Biden an appearance at the 50-year anniversary of Amtrak, he delivered a rambling story about his travels on the rails that was filled with lies. And the media ignored it. Biden, of course, is famous as “Amtrak Joe” for using the rail line to travel from his home in Delaware to get to Washington D.C. over the many, many, many decades he has been a useless Democrat politician. So, it was a natural to have him show up to help the wasteful, expensive rail service celebrate 50 years of profligate spending of tax dollars. During the event, Biden launched into a rambling, confused, tale about his escapades on Amtrak that turned out to be filled with lies, mistruths, and fake claims. Now, if Trump had delivered such a mess of a speech filled with lies it would have been “fact checked” for weeks and would have led every single news cast for months. But here it is, nearly a week since the speech was delivered and few news outlets have bothered with it. In any case, many of the claims that Biden made were simply not true. And these weren’t just muffed facts. They were lies about his personal experiences. https://youtu.be/d_GGqKnRvp8 Per the Daily Mail: President Joe Biden’s strange anecdote about reaching 1.5 million miles on Amtrak has come under scrutiny after key inconsistencies emerged that make it impossible to have occurred as he told it. On Friday, delivering a speech in Philadelphia commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, Biden launched into the tale of a certain conductor congratulating him on reaching the milestone as he traveled to visit his sick mother. Biden said the incident occurred in his ‘fourth or fifth year as vice president’, or around 2014-2015, at which time the conductor he named…
