As I deal with what is, in a new position I'm serving in- I realize how regretful I am that I left my well paying data job to get pregnant and birth a bub. I have loved mothering more than anything I've ever done- but I could not see then how my marriage would fail and I'd be left standing-
no career trajectory, advancement of my skills, yada.
My ex husband keeps advancing and moving forward professionally, and spends his work off time with our son. But I am always on.
I wouldn't have it any other way, and yet--- this is my biggest regret.
It's the thing I've got to figure out- part time, or resort to the dread after care. I can't imagine being away from my precious young son, more than I already am. sigh. dread.
