I'm back!
« on: June 12, 2017, 08:09:31 PM »
Hello, Everyone!

Royal Insight is the kind of place you come back to again and again and again! I missed you guys. I also missed dishing on the Royals!
I left a few years ago to take a new job (December, 2014). I've since been promoted (March, 2017).  :teehee: 
My daughter is a happy and healthy 10-year-old and will be starting 5th grade in the fall. I can hardly believe it myself! Where did the time go?
I hope everyone is well!  :crazylove:

Wow! You have your hands full! I can't believe #1 is 3.5 already! :o  I'm really hoping you are a stay-at-home mom right now, although I do understand if you are not. Kids are so expensive, that's why I had to get a full-time job - to help pay for all the stuff the princess needs.  :lol:  Did you have a boy or girl?

A girl :-)

I went back to work after 3 months. If my Uni would have kept paying me, I would have stayed home much longer- it was tough to go back (and to think I went back after 7 weeks with baby #1!) But, I really love my job, and I think it's important for my girls to see Momma not only working, but working in a leadership position; the top is still far too male! We each have to do our part to change that, I think. Plus, I have never had any desire to be a SAHM- I love working :shrug: and I think I'm a more patient parent for it too.

Thanks for saying that, I don't think I'd be happy as a SAHM either. Not that it matters right now, I've just finished Uni and started working. Although I'm still getting used to working life till I start applying for grad school. Motherhood is so far away. Don't get me wrong motherhood is hard and a lot of work but giving up things you've worked for to stay at home might take a toll on the person.
As kids get older they don't need you as much and to have a given a career and then to have then out of the house might be extremely painful. Idk I'm just thinking about these things because they do matter to me and I don't know what path I'll take but the SAHM one seems to be gaining some popularity rn.

@tiaras-I was a SAHM when my children were young but started working part time as a substitute teacher when they were both in elementary school. It allowed me the flexibility to be there for their school activities and I had the summer/winter breaks off. I agree that at some point they won't need you as much and both of mine liked it when I worked at their own school.

Being a working mom and a SAHM is equally challenging so each woman needs to make the choice that is best for her and her family.

I agree, @TLLK, both choices have their own challenges. My sister is a SAHM (3 kids) with her oldest about to start Pre-K this fall. She was talking about wanting to go back to work when she got pregnant with #3, so that came off the table :lol:  I personally do not understand why she went to college and spent the time and money to earn two degrees (BS and MS) only to leave the workforce - seems like a lot of wasted time and money. And to be at home all day with 3 kids under the age of 5? I don't know how she is still sane :lmao:
