Silly: That is so awesome your hubby gets a shower! What does he think of it?
Zub: Oh the career. I feel truly blessed to be home with my babies. I know that is the most important thing for our family right now. That said, I worked my butt off to get to the point I was in in my career when DD was born - and I absolutely loved my job! I was a stock research analyst at an investment bank, covering real estate and homebuilding companies. It was a crazy demanding job. I worked 5am to 4 or 5 pm almost every day of my last pregnancy, including the day I went into labor. I had originally planned to go back after taking 4 mos off but I thought I would work from home a few days. I knew I'd still need a nanny those days but I thought I would be home to see and nurse my baby. Then my boss changed his mind. Had it not been for the insane hours, I probably would have gone back. I made almost double what my husbad makes! But there is definitely a reason why it's mostly men in investment banking! The few women who were higher up than me either chose not to have kids or barely saw them. I do plan to return to work in some capactiy when this one is in school. I just know I won't ever be able to go back to the exact same tyype of job I was doing - it's just not conducive to how I want to live my life with my family. So I'm not sure what I will go back to. If it will still be in the investment field or something finance related in a totally different field. No idea. It is frustrating though to have worked so hard and to have basically given it up. My sister gave up a law career to be home with her 3 girls. Now that her youngest is in school, she is writing for a paper and sort of tying to decide what or if she wants more of a career a gain.
My DD was wide awake from like 4-6. Thankfully for me she went back to sleep and is still asleep at almost 10! Poor DH though. She wasn't upset - you woulnd't stop talking to us.
I am officially more pregnant than I have ever been! LOL!
