I grew up with Mom having one job title: "Mom." Her job involved cooking, cleaning, handling "toxic waste," taxiing, and television refereeing . Fixing, mending, counseling, encouraging and shopping. Baking, hiring, entertaining and tutoring. Dad: occupation: Businessman. Mom: occupation: Mom. (or the more professional sounding term: "Homemaker.")
I think my mom sensed a call to be mom... She loved that job and couldn't imagine doing something else... and with a son like me, trust me, that was a full-time job!
However, I've had to wrestle with something over the last few decades that's been a constant underlying theme in my head and in daily routines: MY WIFE IS
How does our family balance work, home, kids, activities? Carpools, cleaning and cleanup?
What about the mom across the street who even does the yard work and is always available to pick up the kids?
How will I respond when her meeting runs late and my panicked son begs me to leave my office to get him after practice?
How will I respond when she gets home too late to get dinner on the table before I must leave for an evening meeting?
How will I respond when my own parents question my sanity as they learn that my wife accepted speaking opportunities in Virginia, Texas, Canada, South Africa and Australia?
The truth is, I love my wife and love that she loves what she does. Always simple? No. Sometimes stressful. Yes. But, loving her means freeing her to dance .... even @work.
