Mom of 3 with high hopes

10 years 9 months ago #69474 by EternalOptimist
Ok, a bit about me. I'm 30 years old (how did that become the first thing I tell about myself) and a mom to 3 kids. A nine year old boy and 2 year old twin girls. My hubby is working on a PhD and I thought I'd be content to stay at home with the kids and root for him. I'm way more ambitious than I thought. After considering and beginning the path to becoming a midwife, I've switched gears. I feel that the OB route would be more influential and I could provide support for midwifery. I am planning on going to nursing school first, both as a backup plan and because we're in Austin for the next 5 years. Med school just has to wait. But at least that gives me time to get experience and make sure it's really the path I want and that my family will be strong enough to go through it with me. I'm also a crafter on hiatus since classes started.

How do you fit in time for hobbies?
