Geographers, analysts, and programming professionals call her Benita. Her former students were fond of calling her Mrs. Staples (…and a lot of other names she won’t mention here). Her husband, family and friends call her BJ. And her newest moniker, which she hears over and over again from the most adorable and inquisitive little girls on this rotating earth, is Mom.
As a contributor to Working Moms Against Guilt, Benita brings a little bit of all these versions of herself to the party. She happily shares her experiences, opinions and analysis of what life is like for a woman who loves to work just as much as she loves being a mom.
Benita also writes for Charlotte Moms Blog and Mothers and Daughters.
