Having It All

juggling

Many of us have heard of the “Mommy Wars” (the opposing forces between working mothers and stay-at-home mothers).  There is a wonderful article that sums it all up in New York Magazine.  Admittedly, during my stock broker days, I used to look down on stay-at-home moms, looking at them with an air of superiority and thinking, “You couldn’t make it in the corporate world and this is why you’re at home.”  How things have shifted.  Funny how your opinions change when you’re in the situation yourself.

D and I have agreed that I would be a stay-at-home mother (at least until our child is school age).  We think that it’s the best way for our situation and the way we want to raise our child.  With that said, I still plan on working on AVIVA but just focusing more on the blog and advising people remotely instead of going on in-person shopping trips.

In addition to the above, I would also like to focus on writing more.  Not just about day-to-day stuff like this entry but more creative writing.  Stephen King has inspired me to release my inner fiction author.

Bring it on, Brave New World.
