Although I secretly do love the fact that my boys usually come to me first for everything, sometimes I'm just plain exhausted (emotionally and/or physically).  I recently read an interview in the Wall Street Journal with Sallie Krawcheck, the president of global wealth and investment management for Bank of America discussing how she balances a high power job with motherhood.  One of the things she said really stuck out to me and I of course shared it with my husband.  =)  This is what she had to say...

My breakthrough moment was when I convinced my husband that when the toddler woke up in the middle of the night and screamed, "Mommy!", he actually meant, "Parent of either sex".

I don't know why, but that quote had my laughing and thinking...oh so true!!!

  1. I wish it meant that! Phillip loves Daddy during the day but he throws a huge fit if it's anyone but me at night. Hopefully that will change!
