I didn''t know how to load a second picture with my previous post -- but my complete set looks like this (except mine e-ring has the 6 prong setting instead of 4 )
aw blue... there''s always time My lifeplan included going to school through phd but I didn''t want to stop school or career to have children, so I had them first! Mine are 12, 7, and 5 now... and next year the youngest will be in school full time every day!!! Are your 7 and 4 year olds boys or girls or 1 of each? (sorry harriet!!)Date: 3/8/2007 8:28:56 PM
My mistake. Sometimes I assume too much, as my life as a SAHM makes me a bit myopic. I try to fight the tendency.
I have 3 - 7, 4 & 2. I do plan on returning to something but I think the little one is too little for full-time daycare. I also worry, however, that the shelf-life of my credentials is coming to an end.I have the smaller 2 in am nursery schools so that I have my mornings free. I need time to feed my PS addiction.Funny thing is I never thought I would be a SAHM. I started out planning on only taking 1 year off and now it is closing in on 8. I do have a hard time wrapping my brain around a 2 career family with 3 small kids. I fully planned on and had the ''pedigree'' for a partner in big firm career. How things turn out...
Thanks! What''s a k-jd? With your background, do you even need an LLM? I can''t believe you went through the 3-day CA bar!Date: 3/8/2007 10:03:05 PM
k-jd. Lots of tax & biz classes in law school. Summer associate w/ biz lawyer in firm in MN. Journal of Corporation Law. RA with biz professor who is now the dean at a school with a good LLM program in tax. [I may have to leverage that connection.] Judicial clerkship in MN. MN bar. CA bar (oops not moving there, oh well). Temp. clerkship in OR. OR bar. Associate w/ single practitioner in OR. He had a good reputation, but his firm was in financial chaos which resulted in problems paying me. Egads! In retrospect, I think I got antsy and took the first offer. I should have held out for a better fit with a medium to large firm. A life lesson for me to only take what I really want. Had baby. Had baby. Had baby. The rest, as they say, is history... Wait, found Pricescope and reached bling Nirvana.
How about you? I think on the webinar you said you had been practicing for 4 years. Did I read somewhere in NYC? I''ve read so many posts that I may be confusing things. Big firm? I know you have many jewelry projects, which I admire.
Oh I plan to!! I would start in the fall but my husband has one more year on his masters and we decided to not go to school at the same time... and of course next summer we''re moving... so it might be 3 more years before I go back... but I might go to school at the junior college here next year and just take a couple classes to kinda get in the swing of thingsDate: 3/8/2007 8:36:17 PM
That''s ok, fellow tax geek.
Hope you get to do whatever makes you and your family happiest!
No problem. You can still do your PhD.
my 7 and 5 year olds are boysDate: 3/8/2007 8:42:54 PM
Boy, boy, girl. We''ll see what the future holds when it arrives, I suppose. I am lucky to have options.
I love school, so getting another degree and heading off in another direction is always an enticing option for me, too.
Is this the mother of all threadjacks???
