The Disgruntled Chick
"All work and no play makes
mommy a disgruntled chick."

I'm Elle of See Mom Work and I live/work/mom in Orange County, California.

As a working mom, I tend to be a bit disgruntled and sarcastic at times. But I try to find the humor in the daily grind. 

I started this blog with the intent of providing support and resources to fellow working moms. It has evolved from vents about my boss to more upbeat topics like vents about my three kids and the ongoing struggle for work/life balance.

I also gather and share other working moms' stories who experience similar angst. I encourage you to share yours with me - it will remain anonymous.

Find me on Twitter: @SeeMomWork dropping hashtags like #workingmom, #wohm, #worklifebalance and #seemomwork.

  • I can gleek on demand
  • The Running Man is used to be my go-to dance (see below)
