MiMi: How many children do you have, and what are their names and ages?

Laneic: I have 1 four year old, named Zion.

MiMi: What challenges do you face as a mom who works outside the home and takes care of family?

Laneic: Maintaining my energy to make sure I’m being of value at work, but still getting my mom duties done afterwards. Balancing my mental and physical energy can be a challenge.

MiMi: How have you been able to cope with these challenges?

Laneic: Practicing self-care and being mindful about…if i’m overthinking, or trying to be perfect at something. I had to learn that sometimes “good enough and done” is okay.

MiMi: What are some of the activities you like to engage in with your child when you find the time?

Laneic: We do a lot of messy play, like making slime, and making cloud dough at home. We also really enjoy cooking together (even though I’m not a chef).

MiMi: If you had 1 piece of advice to give a working mom on coping with the challenges of raising children and working outside the home what would it be?

Laneic: Don’t forget there are things outside of these 2 categories. Work and motherhood are huge aspects of our lives that can easily overshadow other things. Don’t let it! Find a hobby, nurture relationships with friends and family, and don’t keep waiting for the weekend to enjoy life!

MiMi: Thank you so much Laneic, for being a part of my Working Mom Series!
