There are plenty of blogs out there about parenting, but I've yet to find many good ones for working parents. Here's one that is definitely worth bookmarking: Deloitte & Touche USA's Women's Initiative Blog.

Deloitte, the consulting firm, is notable for its outstanding effort to retain working moms. Leading the charge is Cathy Benko, who is Deloitte's National Managing Director of the Initiative for the Retention and Advancement of Women. Now she's blogging about her experiences and insights.

In a recent entry called "Compulsively Transparent", Benko admits that she once missed a partner's meeting so she could go to a Nordstrom's sale. And she actually confessed this deep, dark secret during a partners' meeting!

Now here's my secret: If you are reading this entry between 9:00 a.m. and 11 a.m. on a Wednesday, chances are I'll be at yoga. Since I work from home on Wednesdays, I like to get up early, do a bit of work, and then go to a morning class. Working Parents readers: What have you done on the sly while you are supposed to be working? Do tell!

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
