We are two working mothers — Lauren Rose, the director of business development for Name Bubbles, and Betsy DeMars, the assistant managing editor at The Saratogian. Try as we may to be really good at both, balancing motherhood and career can get pretty messy. As professionals, work schedules and mommy schedules often collide. So, we plow through, hoping at the end of the day, our kids — Lauren's 5-year-old son and Betsy's 11-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter — know how much we love them.

Let's play "Where is Mommy's BlackBerry?"

When I got to work yesterday, I realized that my BlackBerry was missing. I immediately thought "Oh shoot, I left it at home". Since I didn't have time to go back home to get it (meetings galore), I decided I could live without it for one day.

So after attending a dinner with colleagues last night, I came home only to find out that my BlackBerry wasn't there. So, where was it? Ugh. I'd already riffled through my purse and office during the day, so it must be somewhere in the house or car, I thought. I went to bed determined to find it in the morning.

Slightly panicked and one good cup of coffee later, I began my search for the missing BlackBerry. After an hour of looking everywhere, I decided I'd ask our four year old if he'd seen it. Maybe he'll be helpful, I hoped. "I've seen it somewhere, mom", he replied. "Can you remember where, honey?", I asked. "No", he shrugged.

As we're hustling out the door for school and work, I put my son's yogurt and fresh fruit into his backpack and notice something at the bottom of the backpack.

Could it be? "It's my BlackBerry!", I screamed. "I told you I saw it, mom", my son said with a smile...
