I have a question for the working moms on the board:

Do you worry about missing your children’s important milestones because of work?

I really like the ages my kids are at, too. We had a family reunion this past weekend, and watching my grown nieces and nephews wrangle their small children made me kind of glad we're done with those years. I know everybody complains about the teen years, but so far, I guess we've been lucky. Or maybe we're just not far enough into them yet.

I don't like to think of the bad or what could be... DD will be 15 this Summer.

Dh & I joke that the first kid is the "starter" kid.;) One thing that has helped me as an older mom is being able to see what has worked and what hasn't among our friends and family whose children are now grown.

Yes I am glad those toddler days are over with.
