Huge thanks to +Scary Mommy  for sharing my thoughts on why we have our cameras ready at all of the wrong moments.   #lessonslearned   #parenting  
I photographed my children at every big moment in their lives, the staged spectacles that seem so important at the time. We know that we will want to see weddings and showers, births and birthdays, school performances and graduations again and again.

For years the Mommy Track has had a bad name as a career path of last resort.  But was it a bad idea, or just good idea that needed to be done right?  Here is the argument for brining the Mommy Track back.

From the +The New York Times Motherlode.  Why our insane push for passion, driven our insecurities and the college admissions process, does real damage. #parenting   #parentingtips  
Passion has become life’s magic pixie dust, but the fake passions that children adopt drive out real opportunities.

Introduction
I am a New York TImes bestselling business book author, writer and blogger.  Mom of three grown and nearly grown sons, I have stumbled through parenting and only now, staring into the soon-to-be empty nest, is any of it becoming clear. I have been a stay-at-home mom (and told the world about my misgivings!), a working mom and a work-at-home mom and have come to learn all have their advantages.

I am a Valley Girl by birth, a New Yorker by choice and but have lived around indiscriminately.
