Mother's Day countdown: 3 days to go. My wish: your wishlist.
Here's the plan: You email me with your Mother's Day wishlist (include anything from "glass of Merlot" to "one day where my siblings don't try to poke each other's eyes out"), and I'll pick my two favorite responses this Sunday. Winners will receive one signed copy of I Love Mondays: And other confessions from devoted working moms (Seal Press, 2012)--made out to whomever you wish--plus my advice (via email or a phone call, your choice) on any issue you're struggling with in the tug of war between working and motherhood. Or you can give the book and opportunity for advice to a working mom in your life who's having a hard time.
Easy breezy, right? Happy Mother's Day!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
In I Love Mondays: And Other Confessions from Devoted Working Moms (Seal Press, November 2012), Michelle Cove—bestselling author, journalist, director, and producer of the award-winning documentary Seeking Happily Ever After--shares the most common confessions she hears from working moms. From “I’m tired of apologizing when I try so hard to please everyone” to “I stress about falling behind at work when my kid needs extra attention,” Cove explores the difficulties faced by working moms—and provides real-life anecdotes, helpful new perspectives, and mom-tested strategies for dealing with each and every problem. The book has been featured in numerous media outlets including Katie Couric's talk show Katie, Parenting.com, Working Mother magazine, Psychology Today and The New York Times.
I am a journalist, filmmaker, author, wife, and mom to an 8-year-old daughter. My most recent project is I Love Mondays: And other confessions from devoted working moms. Other projects explore raising only children, happily ever after, raising strong girls, and hot topics for Jewish women.
