Moms of the '90s

	          Women are sometimes annoyed because their
                  families don't respect the commitment of
                 energy their work requires.  We come home
                exhausted, and we are supposed to be Mother
                   Of The Year and Playmate of the Year.
               Don't let them expect that. They can probably
                  get along with less in terms of glowing
                 performance if we give them a lot in terms
                  of presence.  There's nothing wrong with
                an exhausted mother cuddling her child after
                a dinner that came out of a can.  The cuddle
               will be remembered. The can will be forgotten.
