If I am not a doctor...
I will be a mom of 8.
I love reading about Lindsay and her family. I wish I have as many babies. I just love babies.
I get so encouraged that working moms like Colleen are open to life.
Let's not forget Jennifer, celebrity, radio talk show host, super-blogger extraordinaire! She's smart. She's amazing.
I have always wanted a big family. But now that, hubs and I are past the average of 2 kids (I could not find the new stats... is that still the average number???) we definitely get the looks and comments:
you've got your hands full.
you know how that happens, right?
are you guys done?
boy, girl, boy, girl -- that's perfect. that's it, right?
a coworker to my husband: you know what to do right, snip. snip?
Good thing I was not there when somebody said that to him or I would have answered: No, we are not going to do that. why break something that is working?
But reality is reality. I am a doctor.
Besides giving the task of taking care of these little souls, hubs astutely pointed out that I am blessed to help other children. Not everybody makes the commitment and/or given the talent and/or get accepted to go to medical school.
So yes, I am blessed to work in medicine.
Since we make it a priority for me to also succeed at work and be "good" at what I do, I have to be realistic. I cannot have 8 children and still be able to catch up with my continuing medical education. I so wish i can!
There's only 24 hours in the day and after being apart with my babies, I want to cook for them. I want to help them with their homework. But when do I get to do *my homework? That's the struggle. I am still looking for that balance.
Props to my dear husband ~ who reminds me to read and keep up with medicine; who helps out A LOT with the children when I have to work on a presentation, who has accepted his role as husband of an MD/mom wishing to have 8 children.
xoxo Mr. D!
