Is balance what all of us working parents, and parents and people in general, strive for? Leslie Walker’s post on the Washington Post’s Parenting Blog “On Balance” brings up that very point.

In my case, I am very fortunate to work for such a great firm. I have a tremendous amount of flexibility and I appreciate it so much.
