"You have to have EVERYTHING figured out. I mean, COME on! These people are paying you MONEY!", my mom encouraged me in her own way.

A few rounds later, my husband and I are still adjusting. Now that I'm able to contribute financially, I'm cool, sassy, and entitled. I don't make 50 percent of the income, but still, as a working mom, I expect him to watch the kids 50 percent of the time, and take them off my hands so I can work. He no-like-it. I'm obligated to play the whole working-mom role everyday. It's a great experience for my children. Akinyemi helps my clients learn about cultured foods, the process of fermentation, and nutrition- he even hands them samples. I just wish my husband were there to intervene when Akinyemi gets distracted and rides his bike through my office, butt-naked.

Working to integrate yet another identity into my practice, relationship, and daily life has been the biggest struggle for me. I thought it would just fall into place, like everything else had. I can't predict where this transition will take us, but as my dear friend, Meadow says, "Take one step, and the universe takes a thousand more with you".
