It's just perfect timing that while I was sharing with you awhile back how a tolerant and laid-back attitude helps me in order to parent my kids with a smile on my face, here comes Sarah Jessica Parker showing us how to embrace the fun, spontaneity and insanity that comes along with raising three kids - with style!

She is shown with husband, Matthew Broderick, their oldest son, and their twin daughters.  I am especially endeared with the shot of SJP and her two daughters, amidst all the mess in the kitchen.  It reminds me of the fun the kids and I have bonding in our own kitchen while we bake our fave sweet-treats. Now, if only I could rock those stilettos!
“Like a ship avoiding icebergs” is how she cheerfully describes the running of her life. “The internal lists, the children’s doctor’s appointments, the letters to write, the school projects. . . .” At night she lies in bed and does what she calls every mom’s “strategic planning” for the day ahead: “What you have to do and how to get the kids from A to B, and whatever is required of you at your work. And maybe you can toss in friendships that need to be attended to. . . . The thing that’s most surprising to me is how much we do in a day.”
