When are YOU going back to work?
Christina Picciotto

This!! I cannot even begin to tell you how much I feel you on this. As a former wannabe doctor with a degree in Biological Sciences that ended up having a quarter-life crisis when I realized I was only pursuing that careerpath to impress the adults in my life — I thankfully realized my heart wasn’t in it, and I was more interested in having a family filled with as many children as was socially acceptable. Ha. Here I am at 26 with two boys that I get to mother all day long, and I wouldn’t change it for the world! Thankful for a supportive husband — and for parents that would eventually see the light and be content that I am doing what brings me joy.
