Mother Of Three Works As Baker On Nights, Weekends To Provide For Children

Mother Lynette Slaton works night shifts and weekends as a baker in order to provide for her family and care for her young children during the day. Between motherhood and late night bread baking, Slaton finds herself busy around the clock. She says of balancing work and family, "I'm a proud mother of three, so that sometimes can be a little bit harder for me, because I have to deal with colds, school appointments...and at the same time, maintain a certain level of professionalism."

While the long hours are difficult, Slaton explains she and her husband gladly sacrifice personal time to provide the best life they can for their son and two young daughters.
