I agree. No one has it all. And a major life choice is to be happy with what you have, in the moment, instead of seeking the mythical beast of “having it all” right now.
Ms. Mayer should be congratulated for landing her new job. Not because she is a woman, or pregnant, but because she has been recognized for her achievements and potential to achieve even more. She will have the power to shape the Internet experiences of billions of people. She will also have the power to shape the life of a single person, her son. Her job will allow her to buy him the best nannies and external child care available, but it will not buy him time with her. If she feels comfortable with that, that is her choice. But she won’t be having it all. She will just be doing what men have done for centuries: creating children, and staying on the job.
Altogether too sensible, that Tasha.
