3:57 PM

This is the sixth installment of my MommyTasker Interview Series (see MommyTasker Interviews) wherein I ambush my friends, colleagues, and random strangers, hold them hostage for roughly three minutes, and ask them to share with us, off the cuff, what they do to "MommyTask" their way through work, life and parenting.

This point of these "interviews" is to broaden the perspective on the issues I am discussing here at MommyTasker. I love hearing how others are fitting it all in, and especially how they are engaging their kids in living active and healthy lifestyles. With each of these interviews I am learning things that I am applying in my own life, and hope they become a source of inspiration for you too.

In order of appearance, and in their own words:

The Environmental Engineer

Basic stats: Environmental engineer, mother of one, amazing artist of the painter variety
What I learned from her: Working out while your baby and husband nap is a win, win, win situation.

The Research Scientist
Basic stats: Molecular biologist, mother of two, hosts the most amazing kid birthday parties ever
What I learned from her: Prioritization is key - decide each day what the most important thing is for you to accomplish, do it, and then everything else will work out too.

The City Official
Basic stats: Deputy Director of the Water Department, mother of (almost) two, a woman who changes your conception of who a public sector employee is
What I learned from her: Sometimes you can take the lead in encouraging your kids to be active, and sometimes they can be the ones that take the lead.

Please let me know if there are questions you wish I was asking, or if you have a perspective that you would be willing to share. If any of these interviews inspired you to do something new and different, I (and I am sure the interviewee) would love that feedback too.
