I was happy with my job before kids But I was "empty" I was 23, made great money. Was about to buy a house. It's not what feminist tell you... hahaha

Now I'm so happy and FULLFILLED I'm less stressed out, I smile more, love watching my son grow up and directly engaging, not having strangers do it.

To me, the main point of feminism is that you get to choose if you want to follow a career or stay at home and raise a family. Neither choice is better than the other, they are simply different.

Did you get a lot of people telling you that you were making the wrong choice when you decided to leave your designer job?

This is a terrible life philosophy. Happy is a fleeting target.

now, when you say "fashion", is it actual practicle clothes people would wear everyday, or is it this?

Also, kudos on being an actual woman in the age of the womyn.

You should use your education and skill to try and make women's fashion more like this and less like this.

Be the change I want to see in the world.

Besides watching your kid grow, what's your next favorite thing about being a stay at home mom?

If I personally was in that position, my favorite thing about being a stay at home father would be - quality time with the kid, playing with the kids toys, opportunities to cook more often - in that order.

Having a clean house Not having to pay somebody else to clean for us

Cooking amazing healthy meals I'm an excellent cook and baker Why I think I snagged my hubby honestly The pork tacos I made him ha

My husband had a week off from school and work and went crazy, to restless and said he feels the need to go and work. He watched our son when I went to work and it was really challenging to calm and feed our son. He cried cried and cried and wasn't collicky just upset :/

Having a kid really put gender "norms" into reality even watch your kid grow up around other girls Not a social construct as people want you to believe

Me I don't get restless at home with the kiddo, Yah I love reading his books to him, he's 14 months!

Don't you think it's more fulfilling to make something of yourself rather than just being a stay-at-home mom?

Yeah, but that's just supporting others. Why aren't you prioritizing yourself?

I actually think being a good mother is one of the most respectable things a person can do, I'm asking these semi-rude feminist questions because I need to hear how someone like you motivates these decisions.

Why is it praised for women to raise other people's kids

Better to raise your own Better job at it

Edit: women who are nanies or run daycare

Were you fired for your grammar?

Also, what was the main reason you chose to stay home vs. pay for childcare?

You don't need grammar for fashion I have dyslexia so I apologize

It's too expensive for daycare and finding a decent one in the area.

I didn't want somebody else to raise my child

I wasn't fired but quit because of medical reasons

I returned to work after 3 months of maternity leave

Came back and they thought I had a stroke and had an MRI, I quit my job because I wasn't capable of working anymore. I was the bread winner. I was sad at first but was a blessing in disguise 9 months later after found out my brain patterns when I sleep are irregular

So wasn't fired... I quit. Thank goodness
