Arguably, nobody is ever ready to have kids—no amount of planning can fully prepare a person for parenthood. But whether or not you make those plans is becoming less about expectations and more about inclinations: baby, or no baby?
I have been a parent for going on a decade. During that time, I’ve been a single mom, a working mom and a stay-at-home mom. My experience on both sides of the parenting debate—choosing whether to continue working after having children or to stay home—has taught me one thing: there is no one right answer; the real struggle is finding the delicate work-life balance that works for your own unique circumstances.
