Both my 12-year-old daughter and her 19-year-old brother grew up with Dr. Laura on the car radio whenever I'd pick them up from school in the afternoons. Thank you for conveying the lessons that I was teaching at home, with that much more authority! Listen to mom? Maybe. Listen to Dr. Laura on the radio? You bet!
I also want to thank you for helping me feel so much better about becoming a stay-at-home mom nearly 20 years ago. Once I saw my newborn baby boy for the first time, there was no way I was going to leave him behind for my work. No matter how exciting, rewarding, and financially lucrative work was, he was better. A switch inside of me was irreversibly thrown and I became a stay-at-mommy in heart and in deed.
Thank you, though, for making me feel good about it when everyone else but my husband and parents told me that I was wasting my talents. It was difficult for this 'type A', ambitious woman to let go of my corporate identity, but I have NEVER regretted it.
