I don't know about respect, but I am happy we chose to have more children than just two (which was the original plan). I am a geologist so I have a serious time committment to going out into the field and collecting data and then bringing it to the lab and processing it. I write scientific papers based on these data. For tenure, I made sure that I had checked all the boxes -- made sure I had enough papers, brought in enough grants, was at least an average teacher, did...
I earned tenure last year and had 5 children while on the tenure track. DH is a WOH parent. I'll say that I did enough to earn tenure but not much more and my productivity has tanked in the past 2 years. Two children were in elementary school, one was in preschool parttime and the 1 year old was shuttled between us (I lost the 5th one a couple of years ago and still struggle, hence the lack of productivity).

I would let them go back alone....   I live just outside of Tuscaloosa, one thing about a huge tornado roaring through and killing 200 people two days before class ends, no finals. Of course, that is sarcasm. My family and I were in the bunker of the department I work in (aka the basement). Thank goodness. I feel like that is the safest place in all of the city. The devastation is unbelieveable.

kaybee - my kids have been sick too for about a week. DH just took DS2 to the doctor, he has double ear infections. I'm actually relieved, I thought it was broncitius (sp?) or RSV.
