Choosing Between Home and Career

Print Friendly

This is one of the most pinching question most women ask themselves when they are stuck with a growing career and a baby who needs you. Here are some questions I asked myself, do let me know what made you take this step?

career and home

I chose my baby over my career though I had work from home support, from my workplace. It is very difficult to manage work with a baby around. Also, I did not want to miss these moments with my baby as I would never get it back.

Here are some questions I asked myself:

Is there a financial need for the family, can my husband manage alone for a year or two? yeah

Are there some big plans you have made for the next 2-3 years, or you can make small financial sacrifices to stay with your child?
I didn’t see any major lifestyle changes in the past 2 year so I can do without it for another two years.

Will you be able to spend quality time with your child after work?
No, I will have to wait for weekend and again weekends do grocery shopping etc etc, time just flies and my baby will be all grown before I know.

Will I want to go back to work after two years?
Why not thats just a myth.

Will I miss my baby?
Yes yes a lot

Is there someone who can take care of my baby when Im away?
Though I have someone I want to be a hands on mom.

Will I miss my job?
Money yes, but spending time with my baby priceless.

What else can I do?
Now is the time I can really think of what else I can do. follow my passion , study etc.

What about a full time maid?
Classy, the in thing, but I did not have a baby to hand over to a full time maid.
My baby is not a showpiece.

What about my life?
This is not the end, Ill take every day as it comes. For now I want to spend time with my baby, things will change.

What if I get used to this household life?
Not wrong, but Im one person who runs after change, and I will take every phase as it comes.

I dont like people calling me a housewife, what will I do?
Ignore them and follow bold and smart women who are positive.

I need to ask my husband to buy me clothes, makeup, shoes? oh no..
I can make these small changes, limit my expenses for a year.

What else can I do?
Get back to shape, taking care of a baby is the best gym in the world.
