When we were wrapping up around 7pm the woman who was leading things from the vendor side, who was the picture of confidence, intelligence and diligence all day, said she was going home to crash because she had been up all night with her daughter who had croup. Not only had she been up all night, she had been at the emergency room all night. Honestly, I never would have guessed. I can only imagine how completely shattered she felt, but she never let it slip during the course of our very long day.
This morning as I was juggling an 8am webex/conference call and getting Zoe up, ready for school, and out to the bus stop (hardly comparable to a night spent in the ER) I was reminded of her and all of the times I have simultaneously juggled motherhood and work. Good to be reminded that I am far from alone in this juggling act.
