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.

When you send a man to the store, part II

After my last post about my husband coming home with "groceries" that weren't exactly the basics I had asked for, a co-worker sent me this cartoon, which I think is quite fitting.

Although if my daughter were with him on this shopping trip, my husband probably would have picked up more "dinnery" stuff, as she tends to keep the boys in line when I'm not around.

My husband did laugh when I pointed out the lack of nutritional value in the choices he and our son made that evening. "It looks like two guys went to the store," he chuckled.

And since I am still on this tangent: I left two "basics" off the list of groceries he picked up that night.
1.) A large container of French onion dip.
2.) A container of sour cream and onion dip.

These two items apparently make a meal out of the five bags of potato chips he bought.
