Report Cards

Yesterday was Report Card Day (drumroll please)…actually a week late because of Snowmageddon 2011. Despite my absolute certainty at jinxing myself, I will go on record as saying my kiddos are doing great in school (ever the proud mama). But report cards actually got me thinking…what kind of grades would I make if I received a progress report?? Oh yes, I went there. And it’s not an easy question. Because if I’m being totally honest, I’m juggling mommyhood, lawyer stuff, and church volunteer work and feeling like I’m doing good but not great. A nice solid B. And I’ve never been happy with just B’s. (And please don’t grade me on my creativity in the kitchen-I’ve really been struggling there and would be lucky just to get a C. Seriously.) And between my fitness goals (like actually, ahem, GOING to the gym) and intellectual goals (read 1 grownup book for every 5 kid books I read), it ain’t easy. I’m not saying anything novel or groundbreaking here, but it’s nice to know I’m not alone in this. So, I’m curious, are you “making the grade”? And if you’re having some success with juggling everything, PLEASE share your tips. Especially if they relate to cleaning and cooking. (And I don’t mean telling me to hire someone!)

    I have absolutely no tips or words of wisdom on juggling. Nada. Zilch. I will, however, recommend a book written by lawyer mom Susan DiMickele called Chasing Superwoman. Here’s a link to her blog: and there you’ll also find a link to her book.

    I stink at math, but I wonder if B + B = A ? 🙂
