Chicago moms share how they balance baby and career

Home details Two children, 3 and 6

Work details Editor and project manager

Hours per week 25

How I got the job I moved to Chicago when my oldest was 10 months old, and the company I worked for didn't have an editorial office here. So I started working for them on a project basis and became a freelancer.

How I juggle My oldest is in school, I have two babysitters and my parents help out. I also find myself working nights and weekends. I'm always juggling and it's exhausting.

Why I do it I wanted to be able to spend time with my children but continue to work. This allows me to do both.

Why I love it I was able to build good relationships and I have a good reputation. Even though I'm part-time and a freelancer, I'm committed and reliable and I'm good at what I do.
