The Moms of CFRP

Mother's Day

We, those of us with older kids anyway, joke around here that the one thing we really want for Mother’s Day is to get a break from being a mom. Our newest moms, however, don’t have that feeling yet so we wanted to bask in their joy of the newness of parenthood. We’ve been fortunate to have several new and soon-to-be additions to the CFRP family, and we wanted to share the happy news as we celebrate Mother’s Day this year. To all the moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day from CFRP! We hope you do get a break and find some time to recharge your mom batteries.

Allison Dubin, CFRP research associate, and her husband got the best Christmas gift of all – Sam! At four months, Sam has acquired the skill of waking up in the middle of the night ready to play with mom and dad, which is just what Allison needed having returned from maternity leave. But Allison now also knows the joys of getting baby cuddles after a busy day at the office.

Abby Lane, CFRP research assistant and LBJ School of Public Affairs doctoral candidate, gets to enjoy the pleasures of being pregnant during our awesome Texas summers. During her last trimester (in air conditioning), Abby strives to get much of her dissertation proposal completed before Baby Gerber arrives. She and her husband are currently enjoying each baby kick, which are getting stronger and stronger!
