Cupid’s Advice:

It’s hard enough being a parent, and it’s even harder having both a job and child(ren). Cupid has some tips on how to juggle the two:

1. Know what’s important, and show up: Have your priorities in order. If it’s your child’s second birthday, tonight is the night to miss the office networking at the Chili’s downtown.
