Dana became a mom later in life, having her son, Joey at 37, and her daughter, Charlee at 39. Dana and her husband are teachers, and although that affords them an amazing lifestyle, she faces the challenges of juggling motherhood, marriage, work, commuting, finances - the list seems overwhelming even as she types it. Although people tell her she makes it look easy, sometimes she is secretly more Lucille Ball than Superwoman. Her family and her students keep her laughing, and she considers myself blessed. She has two new mottos – we are what we think, and sometimes good enough is good. Enough!
