We Now Bring You: Dinnertime and the Working Mom

10 years ago

And by "working mom" I mean a mom who has a career outside of raising her family. I am not implying that stay at home moms do not work. I do indeed understand that you are working all day long. Believe me when I say that I know you are not just sitting around the house gossiping with your girlfriends and getting manicures. I know that you are teaching your child and playing with him (or her) in between cleaning up the messes made, dealing with the phone calls and ringing doorbells, getting groceries, doing laundry, figuring out dinner, driving carpool, walking the dog and trying to find time for a shower. I am here to help you as well.

This particular post is NOT for you moms who have a nanny, a cook, and a maid. You don't know from our pain. And we kind of hate you.
