Tonight I am going to be part of
a panel discussion for a doctoral-level seminar on Work, Identity and Adult Development. Specifically, those mothers who decided to stop working temporarily or permanently after they had children. What we’re
interested in exploring is how identity changes during these
at George Washington University.*
That’s right. You heard me. I am an expert on being a stay-at-home-mom. (Well, that and Pundit Mom couldn’t make it, so I was the back up plan.)
So, what should I wear to sit on a panel about being a SAHM? Sweatpants? Business casual? My jammies? Should I wear something my children have vomited on (just for authenticity) or should I wear something clean?
* Don’t worry about the doctoral students, Devra will be on the panel too, and she really IS an expert on this kind of thing.
