What a debate! I had no idea that I would spend so much time as a parent thinking about, talking about, and considering who should take care of my children while I spent my time working on other people’s legal problems. Of course, why wouldn’t my husband and I spend so much time debating and worrying about the quality of care we would be providing for the most precious people in our lives—our children?
It is finally Friday! This hilarious article, Lawyer Moms are the Scariest Moms, has been making its way through social media this week, and when I read it, I couldn’t help but giggle:
“[t]he scariest moms of all are the Lawyer Moms — no contest. And more power to them! Lawyer Moms make excellent parents, and the world a better place.”
I can’t deny it, I may identify with this article way too much. I once rejected a perfectly wonderful babysitting service because I felt like their release form was way too broad. And its true, I find way too much excitement in folding massive piles of laundry into the wee hours of the night (I mean come on, I can fold laundry while catching up on the DVR…what isn’t fun about that? It is way more fun than staying up all night briefing cases, that’s for sure!)
So let’s hear it for all the moms out there, who somehow manage to do it all…often with perfectly coiffed hair and three inch heels!
