My child does not always come first AMA

I have one kid, unsure if I want another. My child was planned, I love him like I love no other. In a life or death situation, everything else would be dropped for him.

However...my title in life is not "Mom". I have a fulltime career that I love and plan to continue to pursue even if it means making certain sacrifices. I have friends and interests that have absolutely no relation to my child that I pursue. Sometimes he's told to wait before speaking if he's interrupting while I'm reading a text or having a conversation. He is always answered when I am through. I've never joined the PTA, I do volunteer for one activity a year. I do not judge others at all, but I personally cannot fathom being a SAHM or revolving my life around my husband and children.

Do you feel that your son does/will resent not being put first?

Nope. I feel that he will grow to understand that the world does not revolve around him.

Well, I AM a sahm and my children still don't come first. No questions, here. Sounds like just plain old raising kids to know their place. That's just common sense.

Ok. I am really glad you found something that works for you.
I revolved my life around work for 10 years and when I had my child I felt it was my responsibility to care for him 24/7. My life is my family now and I couldn't be happier. Whatever my child has to say or show me is more important to me than anything else. I'm glad I can do whatever my family needs whenever they need it.
I'm so glad we have both found what works for us.
