When you have a 2 1/2-month-old, you're too freaking tired to even think about anything of that stuff.
I'm not complaining. We got over it around five to six months in.
I had this very conversation on Tuesday with a parent of a boy in my kid's class. He and his wife were in the exact situation as my wife and I were, right around the same time, feeling the very same way, except they lived a few blocks from the beach in Santa Monica.
It's the type of brutal honesty few people talk about, but it makes for one heck of a Louie C. K. comedy routine.
Belkin thinks it "will probably be best" if Mayer sticks to her promise to not talk about the life-work balance.
Maybe it would make Belkin feel better if Mayer
speak up in a few weeks. If things are no longer "easy," she can tell us what a wicked task it can be caring for this thing you cannot effectively communicate with.
I'm certain if Mayer gave us such brutal honesty, women -- maybe not Belkin, but others like her -- would line up to scold Mayer for being this cold, heartless, selfish, type-A CEO Mom. Public enemy No. 1 to inadequate women everywhere.
