A Mom is in Power at Last

There was a great op-ed in the Boston Globe today by Ellen Goodman about Nancy Pelosi, our new (and first female) speaker of the house. Goodman says: "She's the only speaker whose first career was as a stay-at-home mom." Goodman goes on to comment how rare it is for job applicants to put stay-at-home mother (or father) on a job application under "work experience." She wisely notes, however, that this experience makes people into excellent multitaskers, problem solvers, and mediators of those with conflicting personalities...

Be sure to check out Goodman's article. It's great!
