So did you see this movie? In ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It,’ Jessica Parker plays a super mom doing it all. She has a high powered career in finance, two babies, a nice Boston home, and a cutie pie hubby. I thought it was a cute movie. But I became very irritated at the moron director and ignorant writer who portrayed the stay at home moms in the movie as complete airheads. One SAHM was at the gym working out and she said she gets there every day at 7:45 and leaves at around 2pm. Really? Do any of you know any SAHMs who have the time for that? In the movie Sarah’s character has to travel a lot. She leaves her children. Her daughter resents it. Her baby is just two-years-old. And yet, she is sleeping in NY, going out to dinner with her boss, and while they show her feeling a little guilty, they are sure to point out how much she loves her career. In the end she finds a way to not work on the weekends and tell her boss no to going on last minute trips. Hooray for her! It is so much more important I think to give the best years of your baby’s life to your boss. Parker does say in the end, “There will always be another big deal but not another first haircut.” And she is right about that.
