Letting Go of Perfection

the-motherhood-women-time.jpgI am many levels below my mother's golden standard of housekeeping (for example, she used to iron my father's boxer shorts...I, on the other hand, cannot recall the last time I wielded an iron), but I do -- like many (all?) women -- wrestle with issues related to home and work and time. So I'm thrilled and honored to be co-hosting a live chat on The Motherhood tomorrow (noon EST) with Kristin Van Ogtrop (Real Simple) and Ellen Galinsky (Families & Work Institute), in addition to a group of talented and inspiring featured guests, to talk about women and time -- specifically, how to let go of perfection and allow yourself to relax and enjoy more free time at home.
Participating in live chats at The Motherhood is basically like status updating and commenting on Facebook. Be sure to set up a login in advance of the chat so you can dive right in at noon and learn about ways to release yourself from the perfectionist beast!
