Kids, you’d think that in 2018, people would be woke enough to understand that a woman can have both a successful career and a family.

Alas…

As I relayed the exciting news about a potential career advancement to a family member, said person countered it with:

“That’s amazing! Go for it! Forget a man, forget the children. Just keep climbing that corporate ladder”.

Uhm…

Why is it that people assumed that because I was ambitious ,I didn’t want kids? If anyone spent any real amount of time with me, they’d know my eggs were on CONSTANT freaking alert to be fertilized all day every day.

It was like a scene out of Look Who’s Talking up in there:

Not only could I be career girl but I could be and WOULD f***ing be a kickass mom.

These things were NOT mutually exclusive, for f***’s sake!
