Hi,

I always love these links. This week I thought this was really interesting: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/11/style/where-are-all-the-nannies-on-instagram.html?ribbon-ad-idx=3&rref=fashion&module=Ribbon&version=context&region=Header&action=click&contentCollection=Fashion%20%26%20Style&pgtype=article

So many women, including many featured here, never speak about hired help. I find it frustrating and I wish women were more open and (in some ways honest?) about their mothering journey.
