A female coworker of mine was asking me about my goals in life, whether i wanted any more children, etc. I told her how if i was to have another baby, I would probably quit my job. I want to devote all of my time to any children i have until they are old enough to be safely in school or such. That was the case with both of my children. I was a stay at home mom for 5 years. Until both my children were in school. My daughter in pre-school and my son in special ed. I would not want anything else for any new child i would have. I'd want to watch it grow, obviously breast feed until 1 year old (my son was breastfed until 18 months), and most importantly, carefully watch that it is developing normally and on time. With both my children having special needs, there is a VERY good chance that when we choose to have another child, that it would also have some special need. But I also love and cherish being a stay at home mom, and taking care of my family. And when I told my co-worker that (who is studying to be a para-legal), she said that i want to set women back hundreds of years!
Don't you love how women who are sooooooooo feminist that you can't tell them what to do and are so big on choosing things for themselves, but turn around and berate your choice because it does not line up with mainstream life? Women fought for the right to choose what they wanted, not to be told. And because of it, I CHOOSE to be a stay at home wife and mom, if and when that opportunity presents itself. What's so wrong with that?
