Over the Christmas break I was sent “I Don’t Know How She Does it” on DVD to review! Since I had a 3 hour car ride, I knew I wanted to watch it then! I loved this movie! In this movie, there is the eternal battle that all working moms face…work success vs. family time. This comes out TOMORROW, Jan 3rd, on DVD and BluRay.
I loved the story line for more then one reason. First I loved that Kate, the mom, was working to move up the ladder at work and giving it 100%, yet while at home still trying to be the best mom ever. I loved all of the funny things she did to try to “measure up” with other moms! I must admit that the store bought pie placed in a glass dish and then rolled with a rolling pin to “fit the dish” is not one I had thought of. As moms and women, we all do…constantly trying to make everyone think we can keep the world turning…even when we feel quite the opposite inside.

I loved that thruout this movie there were marital stresses caused by two working parents, yet they worked them out. I loved that there was opportunity for affairs, yet Kate held strong to her marriage vows. This is a must see!
