Dear Dr. Laura,
Mother’s Day is a very appropriate time for me to thank you for your life-changing advice that has enriched our lives. I am incredibly grateful my husband frequently listened at work to your program 25 years ago! With your advocating in mind, he mapped out our budget for me to be stay-at-home mom once our new baby arrived.
My own mother had been a working mom, and I had never imagined myself in a different role. Being my daughter’s mom became my best job ever! While simultaneously demanding and enriching, it was a life-changing experience in many ways. First, I have great memories of spending constant-companion time with her, including listening to her mimicking you from her backseat booster, “Hi, welcome to the program. How can I help you today?” as we listened to your program whenever we were on the go for play dates.
Next, I made a new career choice while she was in grade school. As I helped as room mom, I decided to return to school for my degree – in education. I have been a 5th grade teacher for 15 years now. I can see how my at-home experience was great role modeling for her. She spoke up in college classes about the importance of a mom’s role at home.
I am my kid’s mom, and she is getting married this summer! She has planned her career choices around the goal of being a stay-at-home mom in the future. We’re so proud of her choices and accomplishments.
My husband, my daughter, and I are grateful to you for broadcasting your positive ideals. Keep on rockin’ and talkin’ Dr. Laura! HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to you!
With adoration and respect,
P.S. Since my husband listens to your program, he heard me call in “anonymously” as Jeanine for your advice. We laugh about that still.
