This most certainly is what it looks like — for women — and some men, much less by compare until you hit the weekend. And those weekly extracurriculars? activities, sports, music, art, academic classes, friend play dates, keeping connected to school communities, fellow moms on the carpool circuit, events at school, music performances.
Oh yes, and juggling all this with the years invested in careers, advanced degrees, accolades + professional association events.
Somewhere in this wilderness burning the candle at both ends of these worlds leads to burnout.
