I've been coming across a great deal of stories, blogs, and blog posts about something called mommy guilt. For those of you not familiar with the term, it refers to the emotional repercussions that come about after any instance in which a woman feels that she has fallen short, under-delivered, or outright failed in her attempts to be a good mom.  

Of course I can relate. Who can't? Show me a mom and I'll show you someone who can think of a dozen experiences wherein she disappointed her children and herself.

I’m a third generation “working mom.” (Third generation with a job outside the home.  We all know that every mom works.) My grandmother worked for years at a bank and my mom worked at Hallmark here in Kansas City.

Jeannette started as an artist at Hallmark in 1939 after graduating from what is now UMKC.  She intended to work only a few years, expecting (as was common at the time) to eventually leave and have a family.  But it didn’t take long for her to decide that she could successfully manage a corporate career and family, and in 1946 she was named director of Hallmark’s creative art department.
