[ - ] Last night, i thought i would have a breakdown. I was assiting 2 dc, doing laundry and cleaning the house in general. the two night before i cleaned my dc's room from top to bottom. ds has asthma and the needed spring cleaning went to bed after midnight both nights. as a i ran around last night trying to do more, i felt if I went on I would just die. I went to bed. I hate my lazy dh - another story for a different day. I am no longer going to be the martyr for my family. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes. I'm in in this EXACT predicament, and asked a similar question here about a month ago. Funnily, the UB consensus was choice A (flexible job, good hours, no advancement); but among my friends -- all professional women with young children -- they answer was choice B (better promotion/salary). My friends are "normal" women with professional, "normal" DHs -- no finance millionaires. Maybe for people with wealthy husbands, your job doesn't really matter? [ Reply | More ]

I was just about to post this. I answered former, but my DH makes enough that I don't have to work, so it makes the choice to have more flexibility relatively easy - I dont' have to worry about money, just stalling my own ambition. [ Reply | More ]

If you have enough money to not work, then you have enough money for nannies/help. You can be ambitious, and you still have childcare when you need it. If money is not the issue, why wouldn't you be more ambitious? [ Reply | More ]

Well, I suppose it has to do with my not having to work. I dont' make a good SAHM, I know that and I would never SAH. At the same time, I feel like I am voluntarily choosing to be away from DCs. So I settled in the middle and opted to "mommy track" my career until the kids are older. I work nine to five, I can WFH, and I make it to every class party. I'm very fulfilled personally and I am good at my job and well respected - just... stagnant. [ Reply | More ]

The latter. I can't settle for stagnant in my career. Get more senior, use flexibility later. Also lots of roles are more flexible than people realize. Take the bigger job, and figure the logistics out later. [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 10.22.14, 03:09 PM Flag

Agree. Once you are senior in many jobs, you have a lot of flexibility in some ways though you are "on call." The key is to take advtange of the flexibility and not make a huge advantage of it. Leave early when you can, try to schedule things that work well with your family life when possible, but don't say why. Eg I try not to do client calls at 6 pm --- I don't say "because I want to be with my kids" I simply suggest other times. Obviously, you have to realize when things are urgent. [ Reply | More ]

Charters do not have a monopoly or inside information on good education. SA is very rigid and has not had an impact on sending students to specialized High Schools. Yes they have great test results becuase the teach to the test. I am a SA mom whose dear child is in second grade. I am applying to private schools for teh upcoming school year. Success teaches to prepare for test. For this I can send my child to Kaplan. [ Reply | More ]
