This is TOTALLY me! My mom is the only one giving me grief (just a little) about quitting a high-paying career. She's always been pro-education and "you have to be able to stand on your own two feet". And I can and have, but now, it's a joy being here full-time for my DD who is starting standing on her own two feet, literally. DH is super supportive of everything I do, even if it's overwhelming the living room with piles of fabric to make cute things. This is what works for our family right now, and that's all the nay-sayers need to know. =)
