You are not a quiter. I admire you for going back to school to further your education...something I did not do because time got away from me. BUT, (and it's a big BUT)...if you have the means to be a stay-at-home mom, you cannot beat that. As one who would LOVE to stay home and raise the wee ones but who can not financial swing it, I admire you even more for being able to do so. Much will all work out for you as it should.


Don't get discouraged... when your little one/s grown/s up and you need something to do, a masters degree could be beneficial. Also, if you are ever in need of money you can tutor from home or get a job that works with your kid's schedule (once they start school).


Do not get discouraged and be down on yourself. Things and everything works out for a reason and you are not a quitter either. There is a lot of change coming up soon and it's okay to second guess yourself but don't.

Quotes from famous Americans:

"Don't worry, be happy!" - Bobby McFerrin

"You can't always get what you wa-a-n't" - Mick Jagger

"New house, new baby!" - Auntie Dindo (New house was in Choctaw, Ok. New baby was Angela Noelle)


I think this is kind of like buying new pants for the weight you want to be instead of the weight you are. You have to keep living your life for what it is right now, right? And planning for the future does make sense, but getting your Master's degree has been part of planning that future, too. Sigh. I wish I could be a bit more wise... like yoda. Maybe if I said things with all kinds of misplaced participles or whatever it is that he does I'd sound more wise. ;)


Wow! I would be overwhelmed too if I had all those thoughts in my head. When I'm in that state, I simply try to take things one step at a time. You'll never regret having more education... regardless of what your future holds.


Hey Ang- You're definitely not a quiter for deciding to be a stay at home mom... and it's understandable to feel pressure given the fact that our lives can run on timelines. I like what people said above, life is to be lived- and plans can be made, but whatever choice you make it's the right choice for you. I sometimes wonder what I would chose to do- stay at home or work and be a mom. I think that the task is so daunting to me that I am in denial that I might ever have to make that decision. SO in denial infact that I am pretty much holding the party line that I am not having kids. ;)


may not help, but i find myself in a very similar position. i finished my master's of ed back in june and i have been looking for a job in the chicago public schools ever since. they are in shambles (the school board president just committed suicide, which is a good sign dontcha think?).
so i too have started to consider the fact that i want to have babies relatively soon and maybe i should just do it now since i can't seem to get a teaching job anyway...
but education is NEVER a waste!
and besides, life is what happens when you're not paying attention, right? so you have to do something to distract yourself in the between times and let life take its course


Just is what happens while you are making plans! Just do the next right thing in front of you and everything will work out.
