So this post isn't really pregnancy/birth/infant related but thought I'd share with you ladies and maybe if you have any tips to survive this it would be great. So after much consideration I have decided to go back to school. I will still be working full time and take care of my 2 kiddos in the meantime. My class is online in the evening and will take roughly 2 1/2 - 3 yrs to finish. I'm going to get my associates for court reporting. I'm very excieted and have orientation on Wednesday and classes begin 7/26. I feel like now is the time and it's best for my 2 little ones and I. I know I can do this. But any words of mamas that have btdt? It's encouraging to hear stories of those who did it.

I just wanted to tell you how awesome this is mama!!! Good for you, and way to go, you CAN do it!!!

I too am forgoing my current profession and returning to school for my BSN YAY! but I'm going to take it much slower than originally planned. DH was just offered a GREAT job and we can afford for me to stay home with the babies now!! Also a YAY!!! and I'll be doing 2 classes on line per semester so I don't over do it.

So happy for you!!!

No words of wisdom as I finished my degree before kids, but I wanted to add that you can do anything you put your mind to! You can do it!
