  • No and No. 5 years ago I thought I would be a Junior Associate on my way to becoming a partner in my firm. But then I met my husband and everything changed. I still want that. I just don't like that I've become a simpering wife and mother. I want my career back. I want my independance back. I still want to be with DH and DS but I just don't want to be a SAHM anymore.

  • No, it's not exactly how I thought it would turn out. However, I guess I am not really sure how I "thought" it would turn out anyway! In any case, my life is great and I wouldn't change a thing. I am the same person (on the inside) that I have always been. And that's pretty ok with me :-)

  • Yes to the first part the question .
    No to the second part of the question.

    I like the person i have become. I like that i am a person who always strives to better myself. I like that i am a mom who is always trying to give her children the best. etc etc.
    No. 5 years ago i did not see myself as a 23yr old childless stay at home mother of 2 (i raise two boys but have never given birth). In fact, 5 years ago i would have thought i was absurd to suggest that i would even consider being a stay at home mom.
