|... I don't think you can decide to be a parent and refuse to do what's necessary to be the best parent. Choices to me is being able to decide when I want to leave my career to have children or whether I want to have them at all. You can have it all but there's good, better and best. It seems to me that AP and NFL is all about being the best and in tune to what's natural to use as your guide. It is not natural to abandon babies and children at such a young age even though many people now believe it is.|
I will be a good mother, as AP as I can be. I will carefully choose the best caregivers I can afford. I will be a mom, and I refuse to feel guilty about working to support my child!
I come here (and have lurked for years) to learn and to grow. I will continue to come here for those same reasons.
I respect sahm's, and I think wohm's deserve EQUAL respect, no matter what their situation is. All of us here do the best we can, and shouldn't be made to feel guilty for that. We are not in any way "abandoning" our children!
