I found an article yesterday about working moms and the mixed emotions it brings. There are people on both sides of the office door on this one. Those who believe women who want to work are doing a good service to their kids, others believe mothers should stay at home (those who can, that is).
It’s the traditional debate. What I find interesting is that I wonder how many women will regret their decision — either way. Will a working mom wish she’d stayed home? Or will a stay-at-home mom wish she’d stayed in the workforce? These are questions we’ll never know until we get to that point in our lives later down the road. For now, I think we just have to think hard about our decisions and stand by them.
Just do what you think is best for you and your family right now. And, know that you can always change your mind.
