The number one object of our attention is our careers. Right now we both have stable jobs in large corporations that pay us well for the fact that we don't have much(in my case) or any(in Bryan's case) college education. While this has served us well until now, there are a list of reasons why it might not be enough in the future:
- Kids are expensive.
- Corporations are evil. Although right now we're safe because we're the worker bees, if we ever tried to move up in the corporation to management or some other higher position, they're always the first on the chopping block when it comes to lay offs and 'reorganization'.
- Most women I know around my age that have kids were not happy as full time working mothers with their children in daycare. We would like to have the ability to drop one of us down to part-time work at least -you know, just in case.
- Our house will fit two kids well enough in the beginning, but eventually we'll outgrow this house.
- I went to Disney World for the first time 3 months ago, and dammit, my kids just aren't going to have to wait that long!
Doesn't he coordinate so well? He didn't want to take the blue car for fear of looking like an idiot.
So, I am very proud to say that today was Bryan's first day of college! He's going to a community college to get his associates in network engineering and his hope is to be able to get a job at a school district or college so he'll have the same schedule as our future kids(see how everything comes back to them now... when did that happen?). I'm so proud of him for going back after so long and wish him the best of luck!
