Going back to work.
OK moms, this weekly column is your place to speak out about issues that mater to you. Patch has assembled a Moms Council comprised of local mothers who will suggest topics and get the discussion started. Shihoko Goto is a mother of a seven- and four-year-old. Robin Ferrier is the mother of a seven-month-old. Gail Norris is the mother of 4-year-old twins. So to get things started off, here is this week's topic: The first week back at work: After being out for a few months on maternity leave, what tricks or techniques did you use to get yourself ready to face the office? What was it like during your first week back? What lessons did you learn or what would you do differently?
