Promotions - do you think that your working status plays a role?

Working moms - do you think that your status as a mom limits you on how far you can be promoted in your field?

SAHMs - do you think that your spouse is more promotable because your status gives him more flexibility at work?

My boys stopped wanting me in the exam room with them when they were about eleven or twelve, I think.

Yes, I know what you mean, and I agree that's what everyone else (including me) is talking about.

a relationship is all about give and take, i can get most things, including getting kids places during the day, done while DH is at work. there are school dances i rely on him to pick our girls up at because i don't drive in the dark, i know, weird. i do most of the shopping, my husband is funny about shopping really - i'll give him a note to buy one thing and he'll come back wtih three because there was a 3/5.00 sale on them, Lol. i can be a worrier, my mom was and i'm a lot like her in that respect, but that's not about the things we trust eachother will do. it's more things like, gee, i hope DD does well on her test today; i hope his assignment at work goes well, things like that. i am thankful DH is NOT like this!

If you don't want to answer, that's fine. I don' t see an answer in any previous posts. You said you're a worrier, but you didn't say what you were worrying about.

I think that by "worry" she is saying she is

My involvement with my kids and what happens with them when my dh is handling the running around sounds about the same as yours.

because a spouse's perspective might be different than a child's.

Yeah, that sounds sort of like what our appointments are like. My girls are 12 and 14. I'm happy that my girls still feel comfortable having me in the room, but I would understand if they felt more awkward about having my dh there while they discuss details of their periods or learn how to do a breast exam.

no question was private or too personal. some questions my DD didn't know the answers to, like history of cancer, heart disease, etc. and when the doctor asked how school was, my DD's natural answer was good, Lol. it was me who added specifics about her IEP. my daughter is only 12 though, i imagine there will be a yaer when she will feel more comfortable, the doctor walked her through the entire physical exam, she told her that breast exams are normally started at 13 but asked if she wanted one then, DD said no and the doctor taught her how to self exam.
