I hope that when my girls are grown they choose to make parenting a priority. I feel that I am setting a great example by being a stay at home mom.
I went to college and grad school. I had a great career. I was president of my professional society and I've traveled all over the world. But there isn't anything that I would rather do that curl up with a good book with my kids, or play with them at the park.
If this is such a great life for us and for our kids while they are little, why would it be a horrid thing for our kids to choose when they are raising our grandbabies?
I think it would be great if my kids choose a similar path to mine -- doing all the very fun things first and then focusing on their kids when the time it right. They know that we are saving money for them to go to university and they know a few professional women. I want to start taking them to women university sports, too, so that they see that girls can do ANYTHING they want.

But, by rediscovering oneself through art, writing, music, sculpture, or WHATEVER interests lie latent w/in, children are really given a great opportunity to see people as the complex creatures they are! Besides, someday my children will be grown and on adventures of their own...

I have the education and yet I'm not using it. As the woman of the house, I do all the cooking, cleaning, childcare etc. Am I setting the example I want to for my daughter AND son--that of the traditional housewife?

I am a college educated SAHM of 2--one girl and one boy. I always knew I would stay at home and have done so gladly. Now that my daughter is older (nearly 7) I worry what kind of message I'm sending.
