Here is my question-is it possible to have both? A successful career and a totally fulfilled home life? My LO is 14 months, he wasn't planned....me and OH love him more than life itself!! Up until having LO I was very career minded, I had worked very hard to progress and consequently I am the largest earner in the household. I naively said that I would want to be back at work 6mths after birth....I actually took 10 mths and would have taken more if I could afford it. Obviously my perspectives have changed, financially I need to work, we also run our own business from home as well as both working full time. Sometimes I question how much I miss out on by not being at home more....I feel guilty! So a fantastic opportunity has come up which means I can be at home more but it means virtually abandoning my career....I am going to go for it, I think that I can always go back once Toby is older. I just hope I don't regret my decision. I know everyone has very different thoughts on this would like to hear them!!
