36. Thanks for telling your story.

I absolutely adore my kids. They are still such a joy to me even though they are grown. And I loved spending time with them, did when they were small and still do.

But, middle class women who cannot afford nannies and all kinds of "help" cannot compete for good jobs today. Employers expect 60-70 hours a week from professionals. And you cannot adequately care for a child in the time that remains to you when you work like that.
