Vera, For a while we had good babysitters. Then, we had “the babysitter from hell.” It was then that I decided that if anyone was going to mess up my kids…it was going to be me! I quit my job and decided to be a stay-at-home-mom . It was then that I decided to begin to trust my abilities to parent because what else could I do and what else could I give them, but who I was? I was there, and in end, I believe for me, it was the right choice.
I am not judging anyone else’s choice.
My last post was mixed with a little wine, and perhaps with a little truth. We only have one life to live. I made my choices based on the truth that I knew I couldn’t give equally to both my career and my family. I chose what was most important to me. I am grateful I had that choice.
I have seen many women who can balance the two. I couldn’t do it.
