(but for which i really appreciate your input because some of you know much more than i do.)
straight up, please don't be offended or think that i am in ANY way casting judgment on ANYONE'S choices. the reality of every person's life is different, as is what their family decides. it's personal. it's guided by, most of the time, the best intentions and the desire to do what's right and best for the entire family. were circumstances different, i really might be considering something else entirely. there may come a day when those decisions are presented to me. i am down with considering everything equally.
one of the major annoyances of my life is what i call the flip side of feminism, where people don't support equally the decisions women make. there's a lot of judgment on both sides of the stay at home/work outside the home/be a hybrid mom debate (okay, that's three sides but whatever).
there's no judgment whatsoever here. please know that.
okay. i feel better now.
