Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too

Updated: Aug 24, 2018

The creativity of the moms I interview inspires me daily. My recent favorite mom super-move: schedule standing conference calls with your kids. 

Sherice Torres, Marketing Director at Google, does this every day for 3:15 pick-up. The kids are on speaker on their ride home. They share a highlight of the day and reflect on whether the day was a thumbs up, down or in the middle and why. The great thing is that the entire family -- kids, mom, and dad now have a forum to connect truly.

What I love about this ritual is that she was thoughtful in identifying the underlying value she was missing out by not picking up her kids in person (the everyday connection). Then she figured out how to get this within her constraints (needing to be at the office). 

Is there something you feel like you are missing out on? Can you get creative to get it?
