A Mommy on Assignment

A Mommy on Assignment

- in Parenting

Hello from Summit County! I’m Lindsay McCoy and I’m so excited to be joining the team of Northeast Ohio parent bloggers!

I’m a full time working mommy on the go. I can’t wait to share ideas and tips as I navigate parenthood. It’s truly a balancing act.

My husband and I welcomed our daughter Allison in 2018. She’s a toddler now — almost 2! While I brace for what could come with this next year, I’m so thrilled to be her mom and I love our adventures all over the Northeast Ohio region.

I make a point to spend my days off with Allison exploring new places in the Akron and Youngstown area, working in fun ways to stay fit and trying new activities to keep her busy.

We love to dance, attend baby gym classes at the Little Gym in Twinsburg, and read! I can’t believe I gave birth to a little book worm!

I mention the Youngstown area, because that’s where I work as an anchor and reporter for 21 News. I have more than a decade of experience working in local radio and television news.

I anchor WFMJ Weekend Today every Saturday and Sunday morning, where I dive deep into live local interviews that focus on the big stories of the week and local politics. During the week, I report on the latest top stories and dig up breaking news.

I’m also a political news junkie. I report heavily on the latest issues locally and out of Columbus. 

The campaign trail is a familiar place for me. I traveled to several states covering former Ohio Governor John Kasich’s bid for the 2016 republican presidential nomination. My coverage of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and President Donald Trump’s inauguration followed that assignment.

So as you can imagine, changing diapers was not on the list when it came to my skill sets.

Becoming a mom comes with a big learning curve and sometimes it’s hard to find others you can relate with.

But it’s so worth it!

My job is definitely exciting, that’s why pacing myself is the best way to enjoy life with my family.

I’m a big routine person, but sometimes it’s fun to shake things up!

I started my mom blog website MommyonAssignment.com to share my experiences and ideas. I’ll admit, I’m also hoping to learn from other moms and bloggers in the area, too. 

I grew up in Cuyahoga Falls and Stow. I’ve always lived in Summit County and I know a lot of fun places for kids to check out in the area.

Be sure to follow us here for our latest adventures! I’m also always posting fun behind the scenes videos and pics from my mom life and work life on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Feel free to DM me and say hi!

We are all in this together as parents!
