"Strangers raising children". I have never seen a stranger raising children. I've only heard about them here online. I knew my dc provider for a heck of a lot longer than I've known my dh. I never knew my ped. until my first was born. I've trusted each one with my children. Where are all these parents that just randomly thrust their children at some unsuspecting person and say "here, I'll be back at 5"? I've not had any difficulty in being able to pursue my passion both as a sahm and as a wohm/wahm. My mom pursued her passions while raising 4 kids. My dh has no trouble pursuing his passions while raising our 4 kids.

Good for you for being open to changing your mind. I'm sure you will find the balance you seek (and it does get easier as your child gets older).
