Mommy Diaries: Inside Arielle's Nonstop Daily Routine With Ruby and Esme

The moms of Team SN are real-life superheroes.

There are only 24 hours in a day, but these ladies somehow manage to fit their parenthood duties and a full workday (filled with back-to-back video meetings and non-stop emails) all in one. A moment of appreciation for the parents out there 👏 👏 👏 .

In our latest series "Mommy Diaries," we're diving in to see how these moms *really* make it all happen. We're starting off with a Q&A featuring Arielle. She walks us through a typical day with Ruby and Esme, shares her motherhood mantra, and lists the necessities she swears by for herself and for the kids.

Question: What does your daily routine look like with the girls?

Arielle Charnas: We wake up before the sun rises around 6:15 a.m. Then, we brush our teeth and have breakfast. After that, we get ready for school then drop them off. They both go to school and usually have an activity in the afternoon.

Q: What are the biggest challenges and rewards of being a working mom?

AC: The biggest challenge and reward is knowing that I can do both, and showing my girls that women are capable of it all.

Q: What’s the most surprising thing you have learned about motherhood?

AC: How much of it comes naturally!

Q: What is your motherhood mantra?

AC: Patience is key.
