The Spy Next Door (

"The Spy Next Door
Valerie Wilson, Ideal Mom, Was Also the Ideal Cover "

No matter what you think about women and mothers having careers (and, as you might have noticed from my stay-at-homeness, I'm fine with it), being an undercover CIA agent, using your parenthood as a cover, disqualifies you from being considered an "ideal mom." Anything that uses the children to advance the parent is, ipso facto, less than ideal, even if it turns out to be acceptable. And, from the limited stories I have seen, this particular situation falls pretty far short of that ideal.
