Last Mother’s Day morning, my little men did not awaken me with giggles, hugs, or even soppy cereal. Instead, I started the day in the hair and make-up room at 30 Rockefeller Center, preparing for one of the biggest moments in my professional life. My Good Enough Is the New Perfect co-author and I had […]
In the second chapter of Good Enough Is the New Perfect, my co-author and I conclude that the baby boomers left our generation of moms with two primary inheritances: guilt and inspiration.

As I look to 2012 and ponder what kind of life I’d like to lead, a blend of satisfying professional work and quality family time tops my list. But […]
I don’t surf. But I envy the other moms here in Hawaii who keep surfboards in the back of the minivan, just in case the waves look good. A mom friend says that one good session in the water energizes her for the day, keeps her body in shape and sets her priorities straight. “It […]
In the course of researching my book on modern motherhood, I interviewed hundreds of parents and pored over data reported by nearly a thousand American mothers. But one woman’s observation stopped me in my tracks. When I asked about how she made time for herself, she paused, scratched her head, and studied the floor. A […]
