M. Gary Neuman encourages Corretta to embrace her new lifestyle.
Despite Sean's best efforts, Corretta says she needs him to understand that she's having a hard time adjusting to life at home. "I just told him last night. I was laying there and I said, 'Do you realize having a job right now would be easier for me every day than what is required of me here with our 3-year-old and just all of the responsibility of the house?'" she says. "I just need him to understand it is a very drastic, big difference for me from being a corporate executive."

The adjustment may not be easy, Gary says, but it could be one of the best things to happen to her family. "This will hopefully be one of those spiritual changing moments for you," he says. "You're going to have to realize that, gosh, maybe this is how the universe has come to you, that your child is going to grow with her mother there showing her how to live life."
