Upcoming Surgery

I rarely post on my blog (this one or my personal one actually) because frankly I’m because keeping up with all the work, plus coaching soccer, plus LIFE.

Parenting at the Law Office

I read a great article thanks to a tweet by @lisasolomon today about a law office where parents can bring their babies to work with them – not just occasionally either!! Now that’s work-life balance for sure.
