Life is a balancing act Dr. Seuss may not have been the first to recognize that life is a great balancing act, but he was the one who paired it with the admonition to "step with care and great tact."

That advice is no doubt familiar to many parents who juggle work and child-rearing -- but nobody ever said they couldn't get an assist from technology. To celebrate Mother's Day, Computerworld asked eight moms who work in tech about their own balancing acts, what gadgets or apps make managing their lives a bit easier, and if they have any advice for other parents or parents-to-be in the tech field.

The takeaway? Balancing work and parenting can result in some hilarious stories -- but it all works out with some good old-fashioned time management, enabled by some not so old-fashioned tech tools.
