How to Balance Work and Family

"My mom taught me that you can be a work-outside-of-the-home mom and a present, involved mom. She balanced a full-time job, a husband and raising two daughters with grace and love, and managed to get dinner on the table each night and make it to every important school and sporting event of mine that I can remember. Now that I'm a working mom myself, the example she set inspires me." -- Erika
