People say motherhood is the most rewarding job in the world. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Enough with the sugar and spice.  It's about time we got down to the raw truth and talked about what really goes on, beyond what the parenting books tell us. Life isn't a Hallmark card.  A woman has to work hard for her mommy title.  But there's safety in numbers. Isn't it refreshing to know you're not alone?
You might be wondering why you should listen to me at all.  Well, my background as a TV news producer has been the perfect launching pad for a career in mommyhood: I spent nearly a decade working in a fast-paced, stress-inducing, adrenaline-rushed environment where failure to make a deadline, think on my feet, or be prepared for a catastrophic event would result in all hell breaking loose.  Sound familiar?
