Last week, Robbi and I were interviewed for the It’s Working Project, an initiative that aims to “help the private sector successfully bring new parents back to work with ease, as a matter of course and with a sense of pride.”
Basically, the project interviews and profiles a bunch of different families in order to show how people from various circumstances and walks of life approach the question of how and when to return to work after having kids.
Most of the interviews we’ve done in the past have centered on our creative work and our family life has been a sub-plot. This time around, the priorities were inverted, and so we encountered questions we hadn’t previously thought about.
How did our work change after we became parents?
Who was our biggest source of support in returning to work?
What was our biggest back-to-work, post-baby challenge?
That sort of thing. Answering the questions took looking at our story in a new light. It was challenging. It was fun. The interview is posted here if you’re curious to read the answers to the above, plus gain insight into Robbi’s “greatest pregnancy indulgence.”
Here’s the family photo that accompanies the article. I always look for opportunities to showcase the work of the wonderful Jennifer Trovato of Horace and Mae Photography.
