It is thoroughly stupid that I have to sit down and write about how it is OKAY to be a stay at home mother for my wife and how it is OKAY for her to leave her career for as long as she likes when she likes.
Everyone believes that you can’t have it all if you are a working mother. But we know you can! It’s time women stop feeling guilty and sorry that they have careers. Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo is the example we have chosen to show how women let themselves get tricked into ‘mommy guilt’!
Ten years ago, I became a mom for the second time to this beautiful baby boy…Amaan…. still remember being absolutely mesmerized by this perfect bundle of joy. It did not take too long for reality to check in – Amaan suffered from major health issues. I can never forget those pain stricken gloomy days at the AKUH…the longest days of my life were in that intensive neonatal care unit.
