A week in review: Haute Multi-tasking Mommi’s!

OHM-Weekinreview

In cultured-media this week has been crazy! Just as we stop having heart palpitation’s from the ever so creative writings of Shonda Rhimes and her team of Gladiators

and realized that yes, we have to wait until February 27th to get our next fix of Scandal…. BOOM! Baddie Bey releases her fifth studio album and edgiest album yet! NO marketing. NO single. NO viral campaign. NO sneak peek. Not only did Beyoncé break the rules she made some new ones also. The bar is set. Who’s next? This should not only change music but how we start things in our lives…NO HYPE. Whatever you’re working on…Just drop it and fill in the spaces later. Thanks Bey for the inspiration! Let’s keep it real though, you still need Marketing! Don’t try this at home kids, Bey has a major following!

 

*Side note* She recorded this album, filmed the videos with no hype, on a world tour, all while being an Haute Mommi and wife. What’s my excuse!

 

This week Supermodel Gisele Bundchen shared a pic on her Instagram page of her breast feeling her 1-year old daughter while getting the full treatment by her glam squad. What a way to multi-task! I have breast-fed 2 little ones while doing many things, but a glam squad was not one of them. How blessed is she? When I first viewed this pic, I thought “Thank you!” This is real life…not the glam squad for most, but a glimpse into the life of a mother, replace the make-up artist, nail tech, and hair stylist, with a laptop, screaming 3-year old, and a bag of fries!
Have a great weekend!

Jay-Z New Song (Nothing like a father’s love)

There is nothing like a father’s love….

Jay-Z posted a new song on his blog today. An ode to his baby girl Blue Ivy Carter. Beautiful Song. Glory.

If you have a daughter or are a daddy’s little girl like me, you know how special a father’s love is and how important it is to your children.

Baby, I’ll paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.

Here’s Jay-Z’s Post:

Life just got REALLY good.

Hello Hello Baby Blue!

We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.

Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven.

She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives.

We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.

Does having kids kill your chance for a successful career?

Ever since Beyoncé announced her pregnancy in August at the VMA award’s the streets have been buzzing about whether having a baby would ruin her career. (on a side note) Congrats to Bey and Jay on their new baby girl Blue Ivy Carter born yesterday. This comment not only came from men but mainly women expressing disinterest in having kids or others having kids because their career would suffer. Being a working mother of two, I have to admit that it’s not easy working, going to school, and having kids….but it’s life for me. In my mind I can be only as successful as I allow myself to be. My question is why do many people have this misconception about having kids and careers? It’s not as if we haven’t seen healthy images of working women throughout our lifetime. Did you know that in 2010 61% of moms or moms-to-be were in the workforce and women owned 29% of all businesses in the U.S.? I just believe that women should be able to work, stay at home, run five businesses, run marathons, sing, help with homework, run for political office, preach, change diapers, write books, blog, model, rap, back flips, swim, teach, or whatever else they choose to do and be great mothers.

In the words of Sister Beyoncé…..

Who run the world? Girls

This goes out to all the women getting it in,
Get on your grind
To the other men that respect what I do
Please accept my shine

Boy you know you love it
How we’re smart enough to make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children
Then get back to business

What do you think? Does having kids kill your chance for a successful career?
