Tracy Makes The Times


Share post:

Most days, Tracy Bermeo is writing for us about making dinner with a slow cooker or evaluating pre-school options in Verona. But Monday, while she was writing the party planning story, she dropped an e-mail to New York Times reporter Lisa Belkin about her frustrations with Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day, which is tomorrow.

Today, Belkin published a story on the problems that many people are having with the day and quoted heavily from Tracy’s e-mail, introducing it this way:

Those who stay at home or work from home or come home to a loaded “second shift” are wondering what, exactly, the “to work” part of the day means for them. Tracey Bermeo, a stay-at-home mom of three children between the ages of 2 and 8, and a contributing writer for her hometown news site in Verona, N.J., is asking herself a lot of these questions.
