As a part of our Strong As A Mother celebration, we are sharing the stories of moms on Moxie who do it all.

Today we have the opportunity to celebrate Jennifer Blackburn and Heather Curran. We hope you enjoy these encouraging words from them.

Jennifer Blackburn

What does being a mom mean to you?

Having the ability to be a mother is a gift that I am very lucky to have. Being a mom gives me joy like no other but don't get me wrong, its not easy. As a mom, we are timeless teachers of life. I have learned to accept the difficult moments and sit in the space where I cannot help them heal faster. I have become patient by watching them grow and loving them. What a gift it is to see the triumph of our children, to watch them rise from failure, to see them love others, to hold their hand as they experience loss and pain. They are my true loves, my best friends, and hopefully the best humans I could possibly put out into the world.

What are some challenges you face with balancing motherhood and work? How do you work through them?

It is very challenging to have children that range from 27 to 4 years old. Their needs, development, responsibilities are so varied that it's important as a mom you stay "on top of them". The best advice I can share is stay organized! The more organized you are, the better equipped you are to deal with all the chaos the day-to-day may bring you.

Heather Curran

What does being a mom mean to you?

Being a mother is the best and hardest job title I've ever had! It means putting our children continually before our own needs and desires. Being a nurse, professional hugger, teacher, and sometimes the strict one. It means cuddles and laughs, and it means I learn more through my kids than I believe they learn from me.

What are some challenges you face with balancing motherhood and work? How do you work through them?

It's hard to work and find self-care time. I make sure to have my days scheduled just like the kids so that we know who is doing what and when. They get used to it, and I have dedicated time for them and no work!
