How can it be that I have been out of law school for more than 20 years? I feel like it was just last week that I was starting my position as a first-year associate at a major Chicago law firm.

Actually, although my three daughters are now ages 13, 11 and 2, I also feel like it was just yesterday that I was in labor and giving birth to my oldest beauty. As I am recollecting all of these special moments, I am thinking that perhaps having an exceptionally accurate memory is not always such a good thing. While I cherish my vivid images of childbearing (a labor of love), I certainly could stand to repress my still crystal-clear recollections of those initial days of “associatehood” at a private law firm (where no love was lost).
