It's a story that countless mothers have become so familiar with over the past few decades: Woman wants job. Woman wants family. Woman wants it all – and woman gets it all. And as any have-it-all-mom success story can tell you: It's not easy. Nearly ten years ago, Allison Pearson's bestselling novel I Don't Know How She Does It turned this story into a publishing jackpot, and finally, this fall, the adaptation makes it to the big screen.

"I Don't Know How She Does It" will hit theaters in September and has an all-star cast that's left us completely dazzled: Sarah Jessica Parker as leading lady Kate Reddy, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Munn, "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Seth Meyers, Kelsey Grammer, Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men" fame, Emma Rayne Lyle, Jane Curtin, and Jessica Szohr from "Gossip Girl." We know your day is probably scheduled down to the minute, but take a moment to watch and then tell us: Did you read the book? Do you think SJP will do the character of Ms. Reddy justice?

    I read this book after having kids and while I was still gainfully employed. I laughed, I cried, I could totally relate. While this release is sure to spark the SAHM/Working Mom debate, I think all Moms take-away should be: Do what works for you and don't feel guilty about it. (SJP looks fabulous, as always!)
