A funny thing happened after I had my first kid—my income doubled. I had taken time off work for a couple months after Evan was born, and wanted badly to phase back into a work routine. But I also knew that my new life as a mother had changed things.
With Mother’s Day around the corner, moms everywhere can rejoice in knowing that they tend to leave a positive impact on their children’s financial lives.

There it was, staring at me right in the face. That thing I always heard existed, but didn’t personally feel until it hit me (quite intensely) last week while traveling for work: MOMMY GUILT.
Sorry I’ve been MIA from my blog the past couple months. As many of you know, I’ve taken on a very new, very exciting role in life: Mom. Evan was born on the first day of summer, June 21. He’s a happy baby who loves bath time and his Sharknado robe.
