So, I've stumbled onto this page from the August Expecting Club and due to my own questions thought I'd ask those here their TOTALLY open and honest opinion...


I'm 25, DH & I are anxiously anticipating our first child and we are currently trying to decide whether I should be a stay at home mom OR work outside the home.


I've had several different career opportunities but nothing "professional" I guess you could say.

LOL. We were watching "The Closer" the other day and one of the characters was an autistic boy. Dd was quite fascinated by the flash cards the boy had to teach him facial expressions. Ever since, dd keeps suggesting that I should get a set, "but you can get more complicated ones, mommy, you probably don't need the basic set." Ah yes, the wit!

But on the other hand, ignoprance is bliss. I could have gone through life just fine without knowing exactly where my baggage and garbage was stored. Kids are very good at excavating that detritus. Shrinks (and Greek philosphers)

Questionable joys? I'll come right out and say I think it's one of the horrors of parenthood, no question about it.

It is, however, only into the sunlight of your own mind, but, yes, it is probably the most challenging part of parenthood.

I was joking. Badly, I guess.

Yes, but the "questionable part was really in jest. At least I think so. If we don't learn the bad things about ourselves, we don't get the opportunity to learn from them.

Yeah, I got that. So was my answer but as with a lot of humor there is a large grain of truth in it.

Well, I wouldn't go so far as dying my hair purple and hightailing it to Vegas, but I have been know to drop my kids at grandma's (or one of his sisters in the case of Dylan) in order to have the house to dh and I. ;)
