    Loved the article–very timely for me as a full-time scientist and mom to whom the lion’s share of the kid care, feeding, transport, etc. still falls. I’m sitting at home with a sick daughter right now, thinking about all the work waiting for me at the lab and the massive deadlines converging on the end of this month, and how long it’s been since her last dose of Ibuprofen, and how likely it is that this is strep throat. “Juggling act” is an inadequate descriptor. Most days when I can get in a morning run, crank out brilliant (well, competent, anyway) science, get both kids to from soccer practice in two places at the same time, help with homework, have dinner on the table by 7 and run a school fundraising meeting can feel like a well-executed Rubenstein’s Revenge, but most days it feels more like dodgeball. :-/

    Sometimes, they’re called upon to be police officer, detective, and judge.

    This made me giggle!
