I want to apologize to anyone that I might have offended with this post.
I was not trying in any way to say that one decision is better than another. I believe that the decision that we've made for our family is the best decision - for our family and our family only. I do not pass judgment on anyone else. Choosing to work outside or inside of the home is a personal matter and can only be made by the individuals who are at stake in the decision. Many factors, be it emotional, financial, physical, and too many more to mention here, must be taken into consideration.
I wrote that post from a place of hurt and anger, from a position of being tired of the judgment that I was feeling from others. I probably shouldn't do that as it clouds my judgment and leads me to post things that may not be taken in the spirit in which I meant them.
For though I didn't mean it to be offensive or judgmental, I have had a chance to see the post through another's eyes. I figure if one person is brave enough to bring it to my attention (albeit indirectly), then there are probably many others that felt the same way.
I want to make it clear that the post was not to be an attack on any group of moms and/or dads. It's hard enough to be a parent without having to defend your position from another one. So please know that while my wording might not have been perfect, my intention was never to be mean or to try and define a "best" or "right" choice. Because it's impossible to do so when it comes to this situation.
