Motherhood comes naturally.Working motherhood doesn't.

So admit it. You need some help. Though there's not a full-time nanny inside this book, there's information on how to find one. This is the book for you if you can't spare even five minutes to use your common sense. It's all laid out for you in how-to, when-to lists -- and plenty of stories from mothers like you -- that will help you get it all together.

Well . . . as together as it's ever going to be.

Here's where you'll learn everything you need to get your life in order:

  • How to create a home where people actually hang up their jackets
  • What to do with all those indispensable spelling tests and toddler works of art
  • How to decide which type of child care is best for you at any given moment
  • How to sort out the times you really have to be at your child's school
  • How a time-crazed mother can make, keep and entertain friends
  • How to sign up for and transport children to after-school activities, sports, music lessons and play dates when you can't be at any of them
  • What to tell your boss when you don't want to travel so much
  • The lost art of raising respectful children
  • The best way to date your husband
  • The first rule of convenience for birthday parties
  • Eleven ways to take care of yourself without taking any extra time
  • And, finally, delegating responsibilities you thought were yours and yours alone

This practical strategy is for the millions of working mothers struggling to make it all work.Don't let your guilt slow you down. Katherine Wyse Goldman interviewed hundreds of mothers to come up with the tips, plans of action and decisions that have worked for career women around the country. Here's everything you need when you want to get control of your time, your life and your future. Here's how to make your home run as smoothly as a Fortune 500 corporation.
