Keep On Rockin' and Talkin'

I am grateful my husband frequently listened at work to your program 25 years ago.  With you on his shoulder, he mapped out our budget so that I could be a stay-at-home mom once our new baby arrived.  My own mother had been a working mom and I had never imagined myself in a different role.  Being my daughter's mom, however, became my best job ever.  While simultaneously demanding and enriching, it was a life-changing experience.

I have great memories of spending constant-companion time with her, including listening to her mimicking you from her back-seat booster in my car: "Hi, welcome to the program!  How can I help you today?"  We listened to you whenever we were on the go in my car. 

Next, I made a career choice while she was in grade school.  As I helped out as the "room mom," I decided to return to school for my degree in education.  I've now taught fifth grade for 15 years.

I can see how my at-home experience was great role-modeling for my daughter too.  She's getting married soon, and she's planned her career choices around the goal of being a stay-at-home mom in the future. 

Keep on rockin' and talkin' about those of us who raise our kidlets!


Remember that you can either read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands," or you can take my video course based on the book.  To find out more about the course, go to marriage one oh one dot com.
