So this is my second week back to work. I was standing in my coworkers office talking about family, and since I am the youngest in my department I usally get a lot of advice from the other ladies. Today I was showing the ladies my pictures from Easter (I have to post those) and they were asking how my transition back to work has been going. I explained that it has been going very well, I cried the first night before going back but there havent been any tears since then (well except for today). I can say there probably havent been more tears because Im not gone for a full day, only for a couple of hours at the most! At first I felt weird because I didnt cry that much and I wondered if it was because I secretly wanted to go back to work. Then I thought that was crazy, but honestly I never wanted to be a stay at home mom. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my child, and I want at least one more child, however, I never wanted to be a stay at home mom…I wanted the husband, children, career, social life…I WANT IT ALL!
But is it possible to have it all and be good at it all…can I have the career , the kids, home cooked meals on a daily basis for my family, a chance to go to all their school events, and be a good wife to my soon to be husband. Is it wrong to want it all??? Or by being a woman do you have to sacrifice something to have it all?!?!?
