mom who works

the joys and challenges of being a working mom trying to find "balance"

about me June 17, 2009

Hi there, my name is Deborah and I’m your “typical” working mom.

I’m 45 years old, and by day I’m an attorney at a large Midwest corporation. By night I’m a wife of 20 years, mom to a fabulous 11-year-old daughter and owner of a crazy German Shorthaired Pointer and two crabby cats. Of course, you never really stop being a mom, do you? So I can’t really say that “by night” I’m a mom because I’m a mom 24-hours-a-day. And a wife, and an attorney.

I also sit on the boards of two amazing non-profit organizations, volunteer on two board committees at my daughter’s school and serve on a committee at the State Bar.

Oh, and I still want to look good, feel good, and do it all to the best of my ability.

Balance, what balance?
