Homemaker, Mother of Five

“I’m not just the mother of my children. I’ve found that I’m their PR person, personal assistant, and agent all wrapped into one. I’m their ‘Momager’ - Mom plus Manager. That’s what it comes down to. I know I take it way too seriously. I should chill, but I feel like this is an investment. If I do it right the first 20 years, they’re not on my couch for the next 30, you know? So this is my full-time job. The day is completely jammed up from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to bed. There’s school, but then there is homework, football practice, softball clinic, etc. I’m their personal trainer, tutor and driver. My husband gets done with his workday, and asks, ‘Where are you?’ I tell him, ‘I’m still working.’”
