Email of the Day: My Daughter Is a Professional Mom

My youngest daughter recently dropped off her two young children with me. We played with toys, read books, and took a long walk. When we got home, I started to prepare lunch for them when I noticed two lunch boxes on the counter. Inside were the most organized and nutritional lunches! I was surprised, but was happy to see this as I wasn’t that prepared to make their lunches. Then I had this thought about my daughter. She loves taking care of her family. Her husband is a great provider, father, and partner. When I looked at the packed lunches, I thought to myself, β€œshe is a professional mom!”



Although β€œstay-at-home mom” is a great title, I thought if someone were to ask her what she did for a living, a great response would be β€œI am a professional mom.” Being a real mom takes great ingenuity, patience, insight, forethought, planning, investigation, timing, budgeting, multitasking, and every other kind of skill on a moment’s notice, all without ever taking a vacation or sick day. I know a lot of professional moms, and I am in awe of them.
