I just found this site called Hybrid Mom and nearly fell out of my chair. Did they read my mind?? Their tagline is "Mother your ambitions". And furthermore, the header of their site says "What is a Hybrid Mom? We've evolved into a new generation of moms who embrace their multiple identities."
So, apparently this is not a new and original idea that I have about motherhood. Damn.
Check this out, love it:
What is a Hybrid Mom?
If you have ever:
…owned a purse that functions as a diaper bag, laptop case, tote and/or contains both a cell phone and some stray Cheerios
… prayed that your mute button is not broken while on a conference call
…had a great idea for a business, but no clue what to do with it
… worked from a local coffeehouse to have more peace and quiet then at the home office
…had to make the choice between a big meeting and a little league game
…thought “balance” is overrated, yet strived for some form of it each day.
Then now is the time to declare yourself. For you my friend, are a Hybrid Mom!
From Entrepreneurs to Executives. From Bloggers to Volunteers. From Consultants to Students. We Hybrid Moms are everywhere – and we are actively pursuing our personal and professional goals on terms that still allow us a fulfilling family life. We are strong. We are resourceful.

I just ordered a subscription to their magazine, signed up for their mailing lists, joined their FB group, am following them on Twitter, etc...
I am a little excited.
If anyone has any more of these enlightening types of groups they can tell me about, I am all ears!
