"It's people skills, but imagine that compounded, like, when you really need your people skills at your weakest, most vulnerable, your most tired, you [can] call upon skills that no one else in the corporate world would ever be able to summon, because it's your child and because [your reactions] basically inform everything they're going to do for the rest of your life."
Being a stay-at-home mom is the toughest job in the world, Sarah says. "It's incredibly, incredibly difficult. And I'm so admiring of people who have more than one and do it well," she says.
