  • I couldn't stay at home even if I won the lottery. Yes, it's great to be with your kid and raise them but personally, I like to be challenged in the corp world and I've done a good job balancing a career and homelife. It also sends a positive message to my kid that life isn't free and it takes a good education and work to get what and where you want in life.
