As I prepare to return to the office, there are two things I have promised my family: I will leave work at work and not bring the worry home.
With that said, I still fear how little time I'll have with my son during the week. I'm not the first parent to struggle with work/family balance. And I know I'll eventually create the perfect cocktail: one part mom, one part wife, one part staff. And like the vermouth in a martini (or so I hear) just enough daughter, sister and friend to bring it to taste. But until I find the right mix, I will fret that I'm adding too much of one ingredient and not enough of another.
