Just loved the below zero temps over the weekend-nothing like a great glimpse of spring. Oh, and the biggest winter storm of the season was enough to keep my sis and her son from visiting this weekend. Gee, aren't we lucky to live in Minnesota?
Okay, my obligatory weather whining for the day is over now, back to more interesting things! It is supposed to hit 40 by Friday, so I need to dig out my sandals.
Today I want to highlight those women in my life who are not only incredible moms, but small business women too! It isn't enough for them to manage a home, and their children's lives, they also bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan too. (or not, if they are vegetarians...)
And not coincidentally, they are both named Tracy!
Tracy has 3 children, and has run an in-home day care for more years than I can count. Imagine turning your home into a business that five days a week is full of small children, that you need to not only nurture and care for, but provide learning to as well. I don't know that Tracy has EVER had a sick day, even though I am sure there are many days she wishes she had. Having an off day? Sorry, those little kiddies need you, and the parents are depending on you. I am continually impressed, and amazed, and she just makes me tired. The woman should be wearing a crown, and getting regular massages.
Tracy has 2 sweet girls, and is expecting her third this summer. She has her own Ebay store, and is a trunk keeper for Matilda Jane.
She just had a show over the weekend, that I am quite sure had to be a sales record for the entire company! She used to be a corporate woman, with Imation, but now she is her OWN corporation! In between making lunch for her girls, bringing them to school, and managing her home, she has record sales days!
Talk about multi-taskers, these two women ARE the phrase.
I am honored to be their friends! I could never work that hard.
