Motherhood is many thing—joyful, life-changing, and hugely grounding rank high on the list of adjectives. But one word that's rarely used in the same breath as new parenthood? Restful. For Goop senior editor Megan O'Neill, each day with her one-year-old son, Lagos, is a juggling act between work, family, and the art of the unexpected.
