Creative Thinking: Managing a legal department requires patience, understanding and the ability to think outside the box

Back in January, when I gave birth to my first child, I honestly thought, "How hard can this really be?" I enjoy feeding him when he's hungry, soothing him when he's fussy and changing his diaper when it's dirty. And that certainly helps with regard to how much is "work" and how much is "fun" to me as a mom.

But sometimes (drum roll, please), it isn't as easy as I originally thought. Sometimes he wakes up so hungry that it's hard to get him to settle down. Sometimes he's fussy for no reason and nothing seems to calm him down. As for his diaper, I'll leave that to the imagination.
