Headless Mom

I didn't realize your mom had a masters! Go Mom!


Since my husband was recently diagnosed with a lung disease, how could I not comment? Great interview with your mom!

My comment sadly won't get a donation (outside the US), but I wanted to add my admiration and appreciation of your Mum. We tend to assume the nurses will be there when we need them, without truly appreciating their hard work and compassion, exhibited day in and day out.

Education gave me a career I loved until I, too, felt called to stay home with my children (at least until they are older). Your story reminds me that a sincere thank you note goes a long way.

Your Mom is a wonderful person who genuinely cares about people, you can see it in her smile.

We can learn so much by listening to our mothers. Funny how we realize that after our teen rebellion years!

Your mother gives good advice. In fact, I'm sending my daughter a link to this column as she's looking into nursing school.

Thanks for sharing!

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
