Rachel Griffiths Covers Cookie Magazine's Last November Issue

Cookie's Swan Song With Rachel Griffiths

Cookie magazine promises "All the best for your family" and this month, they were right on the money with mama Rachel Griffiths gracing their final cover. While the Australian beauty looks classy and beautiful in the glossy print, it is her outlook on parenting that has me in awe of the career mama. The laid-back yet hardworking mommy shares a beautiful life with her husband, son and two young daughters. As the sage sister on her popular television show, Brothers and Sisters, it is only fitting that she imparts words of wisdom on parenting that every mum should hear:

Motherhood is defined differently here... Child rearing reaches a different level of stress and self-immolation. In Australia, I don't think women stay up all night baking cupcakes for their kids' bake sales when they're a lawyer working an 80-hour week, just to prove they're a good mommy. You just stop at the 7-Eleven and buy the cupcakes. And no one would judge you for it.

The woman from down under could teach a lot of us a thing or two about motherhood. Make sure to check out Cookie's last November issue for tips on a stress-free Thanksgiving!
