I didn't really ever want to get married or have children. I never dreamt of having a big wedding or anything. My dreams were career based only, until after college and I moved in with my boyfriend.... Maybe it was they whole internal clock thing but mid twenties started thinking about marriage and babies.
Even after having my first baby I wasn't ready to be a stay at home mom. I did cut my hours to part time but I felt I needed to work... I think it was because my mom was a sahm and hated it but looking back she had "issues". My first was such a handful, just so unhappy as a baby! Although I remember the stresses of balancing everything or trying anyway. Yuck!
It took adjusting but I am SO SO happy to be home with the kids!!!!
