The Easiest Tough Decision
There are two big milestones coming up this fall for me. First, this is my fourth anniversary with Metaverse Mod Squad. I came aboard this amazing company and worked to build out the digital marketing department. Four years later and we are doing everything from moderating and engaging with fortune 500 company social media channels, to supporting the launch efforts of some of the hottest startups. Our team is made up of a wonderful Director of Digital Engagement, creative social media managers, and enthusiastic social media specialists.
Secondly, this fall will be the first birthday of my ridiculously large and bursting with personality daughter (you might remember her from my blog posts My Virtual Baby Shower and The New Generation of Stay-at-Home Moms, or from the post introducing the new Baby Genius Devision).
In the footsteps of your typical proud mom, I am always excited to show off some of my favorite summer-time pictures of my Madeline! Over the course of the last few weeks, the primary problem I have encountered when sharing these pictures is the knowledge that I did not take them. Instead, I received them via text message from our fantastic nanny. She is truly a great help! But, she’s not me. I’m missing out on some crucial moments with Madeline.
This brings me to the easiest, tough decision I’ve ever made. It came to me like a heartbreaking epiphany after I received a video text of Madeline playing with bubbles at her first Gymboree class. For as much as I love my day-to-day as the VP of Digital Media, I decided I needed to shift focus a bit, and really embrace this new title my little girl graced me with: “Mama ma ma da ma.”
Let me be perfectly clear: I’m not going anywhere! I am still going to stay with Metaverse Mod Squad and manage my current awesome pool of clients. Amy, Mike, and team have been amazingly supportive of this move. I could not ask for a better company! So, never fear, I’m still here!
