I was the subject of last week’s Manic Mommies podcast, which you can download by going to the ManicMommies website.
Two main take-aways from this interview. First, the idea of changing the language from “I don’t have time” to “it’s not a priority” really resonates with people. And second, I wish parents in general would be honest about their childcare situations. Erin asked me when I found time to write 168 Hours with little kids, and I was quick to clear up any idea that I wrote it during nap time. Most fathers do not expect to do their work only during nap time, though I had a brief fantasy about people starting to ask men in Big Important Jobs this question. (“Wow, that was quite an investment portfolio you put together! And you have three little kids! Tell me, when did you find the time?”)
