For every mom who has to leave her babies for out of the home obligations…have this book, read this book and give this book. Nearly 18 months ago, as I approached maternity leave wrapping up with our youngest, Anika, my friend Julie sent me this book along with a few other favorites. It gives me peace with the balls I keep in the air as a mother and working professional every time I read it to my young girls.

There is also a book for Daddys.
My working mom routine is rigorous at times and a grind. There is no glory in business travel. It’s a fine balance and that’s commitment and coordination from my husband and entire family. But the most important role I will ever have is my role as a mother to my dear three children. I am especially thankful after a long day of work to rock the girls before bed and read them this book. And even if I don’t rock my big teenager anymore, he still knows his mama comes home tonight.
What are you thankful for this Thursday?
