    I was a stay at home mom. I left a growing career as an IT exec to spend 6 years at home with my child. They were the most rewarding years of my life.

    Before I stopped working that time, I decided to do something that worked with my schedule, so I got myself appointed to a municipal committee and served on the Police committee. I was elected chair while I was in the hospital for 8 days after having had a Caesarian.

    When I was at home a bit later, I ran for the council. I was elected and served. I did this because most of the events were in the evening, but if I had a day meeting, I packed up the kid and rode my bike. We didn't have enough money for a car.

    If you really believe your sig line, you would say (like I did), good for you. More people should do that.

    However, what you're saying today is that our kids aren't worth our time. I should have returned to work so we would have a 2nd car? That's better than being with your kids if that's a person's choice?

    Since then, I have indeed chased the almighty dollar. I did it by working in the public sector, making far less than I would in the private sector. It was a moral choice.

    Love the put down:

       disgusting holdover
    And here I was, thinking that I was serving both my family and my community/government when I was simply a disgusting holdover. Thanks.
