This is a special chapter for the author as she narrates her journey to her decision to say goodbye to a promising investment banking career to become a full-time homemaker. She also shares tips on how to remain an exciting homemaker.
IN A NUTSHELL:
We all want the best for our children and we would do everything to give them the best upbringing. Listen to yourself and honestly assess what's the best arrangement during their growing up years because you can not turn back the hands of time to go back to their childhood anymore.

@July 23, 2011 Guest - Hi, Stella is very lucky to have you for her mother. I sincerely wish you an enjoyable time with her. Do the things you've always wanted to do but didn't have the time to. Take care of Stella, your husband & yourself well. Never forget yourself. It's not always going to be happy. There will even be doubtful moments but rest assured that you are where God wants you to be right now. Enjoy being a "Domestic Diva!" :)Jul 24, 2011 / 08:40 am
Last June 30, I tendered my resignation to devote full time to my daughter Stella. My boss lent me a copy of your book ma'am and this particular chapter enlightened me a lot. Thanks for the inspiration.Jul 23, 2011 / 08:52 pm

@Mar 22, 2011 Guest - You are welcome. These days mothers are really challenged by this big question: To work or not to work. There is no single formula for all moms. We really have to figure out for ourselves what is best for our family without totally neglecting our (the moms') self development. It is a challenging decision to make. I remember reading an article about Jackie Kennedy Onasis saying something like, "If I succeeded in a lot of things but failed in raising my children, no amount of success in these other things would really matter."

I became emotional when I read this chapter. I also decided to leave behind my career to devote more time to our growing family. It was a difficult decision for me because I really loved what I was doing. It just came to a point wherein I had to decide who should get my focused attention. Like you I also wonder where I could be now, had I not left the corporate world. Fortunately, most of the time I am where I want to be. Thanks for sharing this aspect with your readers.Mar 22, 2011 / 12:55 am
