As a child, I remember looking forward to summer vacation all year. Two months without responsibilities, roaming free until the leaves began to change color. It never occurred to me that I wouldn’t get the same time off as an adult!

We’ve all seen them… maybe we’ve even BEEN them. People walking around New York, Rome, Barcelona, Paris, London, or (insert city), and everything about them screams, “I’M A TOURIST!” My name is Chris… and I was a tourist.

The idea of a “working mom” is a bit of a redundancy. Motherhood, by its very nature, is work. Whether it’s at home, in an office, on the subway, or anywhere in between, being a mom is an arduous task. There is, after all, a reason it’s called going into labor, never going out of. So, to salute all the moms out there, and pay homage to the hard work they do on our behalf, we’ve compiled a list of...
