On this last day before our son starts his first day of public education, I look back and realize 5 years have passed in a blink of an eye. Project management can be a challenging profession but nothing can compare to being a parent. Sure, I feel guilt if I screw something up on a project, but in the end it’s just money. What if we screw up our kids!? Because my wife and I figured family was more important than work (and money), my wife put her career on hold to ensure our son got the attention and nurturing he deserved. Our perspective and optimism of the future is represented in an awesome video created for the AARP U@50 video contest. You may have seen it before. It’s worth the 2 minutes.
If anyone is looking for a technical writer, armed with a masters degree and years of experience, my wife may consider some part-time work. One thing is for certain, you know she has her priorities straight.
