How can people say that when a woman is a homemaker that kids are suppose to be her only life...and then when she becomes a worker that her work is her only life that matters?
WTF is this? So a woman that is married and has 1 child is suppose to stop having kids to "work on" her career? Before I finished school and even while I was still attending people were NAGGING about when I was going to have another one! Before I left the hospital with my son everyone wanted to know WHEN we were having another baby! Just because I didn't have my kids 2 yrs apart like everyone else did doesn't mean I have to stop. My kid would be almost 7 when he had a sibling if I got pregnant right now. Just because I made the choice to stop and work on myself and help out my husband doesn't mean that I don't have the right to extend our family! I'm so pissed off that people think OUR money is all that matters! Nobody had a problem with me being on foodstamps and not working though. Now that I got in with a Health Center and will be providing the insurance plus my own income which will be way more than we need (because hubby now makes about $2,500 a month) why the F**** do people think they have the right to decide for me? I had 2 miscarriages. Yes they hurt but if I have to pay for fertility testing or anything I WILL be able to.
This is more of a vent. I mean I just don't get it. Career women CAN have kids too. I'm ashamed to admit that my family seems more supportive of SAHM's on assistance. I chose not to be like that after I saw hubby going through jobs looking for more every time so we didn't need help. I am proud of what I've accomplished and DO want to own my business someday but people don't understand things take time and I know what I need to do and in what order. I'm just at a loss when it comes to what they're all thinking!
No offense to anyone, this is not for bashing. This is about my own family that others think I should pretty much skip because I decided to have a profession. I will do this according to US. It's just a rediculous thing for people to be so oppinionated about when I have family that are self destructful and they just look right past. Really, I am not the one they should be so "concerned" about!
