Email of the Day: A Heart-Tugging Note From the Child of a Working Mom

Recently, I was listening to the audio of the Today Show on my SiriusXM radio. They interviewed the former CEO of Pepsi on how she β€œjuggled” family life and work.

 

Two minutes and forty seconds into the interview, my heart shattered for her children. One of her young children wrote her a note that said, β€œMom, I would really appreciate it if you would please, please, please come home early. I will love you more if you come home.”

 

And the response from this working mom? She said β€œIt broke my heart, but that’s reality!” That’s when MY heart broke, because the interviewer and the rest of the Today Show on-air staff were all praising her and saying how amazing she is.
