Supermom, isn’t she?  What you don’t see is her commuting from Virginia to NYC to finish rabbinical school while writing her dissertation in her eldest’s first year of life.  Or her traversing land and sea, from Israel to the States and back, multiple times a year with two small children by herself, often while simultaneously battling a sinus infection.  Lauren runs 8 km before her kids wake up in the morning, makes homemade popcorn, sets up a new educational theme weekly, brings so much love to the world as wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, rabbi, mentor and so, so much more.

So tomorrow I’m channeling her…her strength, thoughtfulness, and immense capability.  Our babe is in bed.  Clothes are washed.  Bags are packed.  Breasts are pumped.  And I even managed to review something about anti-epileptic drugs.  I am hoping that, despite studying painfully little these last couple weeks, I manage to not completely embarrass myself on the neuro shelf tomorrow.  Please wish me luck!

    I’m an old guy attracted to this blog by the NY Times, thank you Anna. But the thing about this supermom is that she is young and fit, as once we all once were or are now, as the case may be. More power to her! My sister had seven children and is still carrying on. Like me (sort of), she’s an old lady.

    And good luck tomorrow.
