Janet Stemwedel has a very well balanced post on the minefield that is work-life balance. It is an issue that I have grappled with as well and I have decided that there really is no optimal solution. I've had maid service before and would like to have it again. But I'd never thought through to the next step of who is liekly to be a amid and what the implications of that are.

But I suspect that the biggest insight that she has is how quick we are to judge the decisions of others.

My experience paying for skilled and loving childcare while I worked was that philosophers and career advisers do not lurk when it comes to such choices. They butt right in and tell you all the ways you are doing it wrong.

The whole article is a very good read and quite thought provoking. Definitely a blog worth checking out!
