Wow

Bossman and I had a little chat today, tieing up loose ends before my last few days pass.  He looked right at me and said point blank...

"You're really not going to just be a stay at home mom are you?" said with disdain.

Wow.  Don't hold back bossman.  Is that such a horrible thing that I would put my career on a temporary hold to raise my own children? What a crazy idea right? To want to be home with my own children (I say children because we plan to try for anther next year).

I told him that I plan to do consulting and find a part time teaching job as an adjunct and that seemed to calm his fears for poor Jen wasting her education to raise her kids.

So it is better to pay someone to do it for you? I don't understand some people. I have never gotten anything negative about being a SAHM. If anything it says something good about you.
