How having a child made me an introvert

The first two times I took the Myers Briggs test, I scored a clear E for Extravert. The first time was in high school to help determine what jobs might fit my personality best, and the other at my first job, to see perhaps if I’d selected the right one. I’ve always described myself as […]

Why This Mommy Left Her Job

For reasons already explained in a prior post, being a working mommy is hard. But being a stay at home mommy looks (at least to me) even harder.
