I feel like everyone I know lately has somehow been bringing up the debate of being a Stay At Home Mom or a Working Mom (I blame Marissa Mayer). I've discussed this with my friends, my family, my guy friends, my coworkers... the topic is relentless: What is the right way to raise your children?
The one thing I have determined is that there's no easy way to decide. My friends and I seem to narrow the dilemma down to two opposite yet negative ideas: We will either be scrapping all we've worked for educationally/career wise to spend all day every day with our kids, or we will continue to advance in our careers and lose out on the day-to-day preciousness of child rearing. Both options sound equally rough and stressful to commit to.
Either way: I guess it made me thankful that I don't have to make that decision right now. I'm not married, not pregnant and not planning to be in the immediate future- so I've got some time to just chill, enjoy my paychecks, bask in my evenings that include my agenda only and just enjoy being a young(ish) girl who can just focus on me right now. And have a house full of glass furniture.
Selfish or not- I know it won't always be this way. And I just feel grateful for the time. Especially as I listen in on the scary discourse surrounding the topic on the reg'. Makes me just want to take a big, 'ol nap and implode my uterus.
I hope St. Patty's Day "tiredness" is officially behind you now- have a wonderful Tuesday!
