moms: pay attention, creative stress relief!

Happy Monday Morning Readers!  Yes, it is Monday…back to work, back to school, back to the grind.  For moms, this is sometimes a relief after an exhausting weekend of playdates, activities, errands, cooking, and fingers crossed – a date night.  I am particularly slow-moving today after a very stressful few days, and I am determined to have a tiny bit of fun and letting go on the blog today.  Introducing a fun way to get rid of the stress —

Daily Life for moms is extremely hectic and often times, STRESSFUL.  No shit, you say.  I just wanted to make sure that we were on the same page.  I have talked about relieving stress (yoga, exercise, all the usual suspects) before, but today I wanted to take a new angle.  Today’s topic is SEX! Come on Backngroove-readers, I write about 3 topics:  mommies, mompreneurs, and my work on lingerie-related products.  The Sex Talk was bound to happen sooner than later.

prototypes & the attack of the bra-zilla

Time – 5:00 a.m.

Have you ever been so excited that you cannot even get the words out?  I am!  I am not suffering from writer’s block, but rather an overflow of what wants to come out of my brain…A little crazy!!  I always have A LOT to say about everything, but this time, I cannot organize the thoughts to create a blog.  I considered shooting a quick video, but then decided that could become a long video of me rambling and rambling and rambling.  Obviously, that would not be very EFFECTIVE.  So, I am trying to organize the blog this morning, but I cannot say what time I will finish……I am “Bra-zilla” gone mad! (thanks again to a friend for yet another bra related nickname).

Time – 10:30 a.m.

I know that many of you have been waiting for the big reveal of the prototype, and I just wanted to bring you up to speed.  I have had so many comments & questions: What are you doing playing with bras all the time?;  Are you making a bra?; I wear a 36C; I wear an A cup; What is a “braduct?”; Can I See your prototype?  So, here you go with some answers.  Backngroovemom is working hard behind the scenes on lingerie-related products. At the moment, I am focusing on a bra related item.  That is all I can say for now, but very soon our bra-related products will be available for test marketing!  Who knows?  I may call on YOU to test market.

This week also involved a quick shopping trip to Victoria’s Secret.  We needed a few size B bras for “prototype playtime.”  I took advantage of the moment to pick up a few items for myself.  I have to put a little plug in for the new Incredible Racerback Demi Bra by V.S.  I figured since I have been spending so much time in the company of bras, I would occasionally give a quick review.  The Incredible Racer Back is a new style by V.S., and incredibly smooth.  It is perfect for under a tight fighting shirt because it shapes smoothly without creating any lines. I have tried the Incredible Bra out, and it is now Backngroovemom- Recommended.

Which brings me back to the Backngroovemom “Braduct”…..Braduct evolved out of a conversation with my 10-year-old (JB) about my upcoming product.  Yes, he did sign a non-disclosure, and we have not dared share any information with my 7-year-old (BB).  If you know BB, you know that he cannot keep his lips zipped on anything.  However, JB expertly identified that Backngroovemom was not creating a product, but rather a Braduct.  Braduct is a very important piece of our marketing!

uninhibited

@backngroovemom just met a guy that I never met before at a coffee place in polish hill to discuss my bra project – good thing I am #uninhibited

For some reason…in the last 2 weeks, I have now broadened my adventure to 2 projects….

whew!

I have been distracted for a few days by a website based project that I have been investigating (details to remain vague).  Today, I had to get back on track with my bra project (details still to remain vague).  My 9 year old has been required to sign a non-disclosure after discussing the idea.  He now affectionately calls my bra related product a “braduct”.  Maybe I should hire him for marketing?

Anyway, as a woman entrepreneur, I think that it is important to be uninhibited?  Why?  There is no room for blushing when trying to start a company.  So, today I met an artist to discuss bra related prototypes in a local artist area at a coffee shop that looked like a bar from the outside.

whew!

I skipped the blushing, got right down to business, and hope that I have found the guy to make my prototype! And, I did before having to go pick up my kids from school…even better!

just a short little thought for today.
