I have thought of the movie “Mona Lisa Smile” a lot over the past year. With decisions on whether or not to work at home (the job I had when Little Man was born) or outside the home part-time and then, once I decided to focus on motherhood and resigned from my full-time career, the internal debate over whether I made the correct decision in the months that followed.
Here is a little background on me:
My grandmother (my father’s mother) was a doctor, which I always knew was almost unheard of in the fifties and sixties, when she started her practice. My father’s two sisters also both had successful careers. One chose to pursue her career and the other chose to pursue the art of raising a family.
Today I am guest posting for my very close friend Diana over at Hormonal Imbalances. She is an amazing woman and I am so excited to share my story on her blog!
