You are lucky...

I agree that time with your children is priceless!  I had the opportunity to stay at home with my kids for a short time.  Those days are long gone.  I am a single mom now.

I also recently returned to college to attempt finishing my degree by age 40.  I sometimes question this goal when I look at whether it is truly practical and will apply to any job.

It will be an accomplishment withing itself at least, and is something I should have done a long time ago.

I only have 2 more years until my daughter will be leaving for college.  I cherish every moment I have to still be around her.  You can't make up for lost time.  My son is 21 and I feel like I lost time with him.

Sanity - Sooooooo many people have student loan debt hanging over
their heads.   Too bad it has to be that way.   Enjoy your children while you may.  They grow up so fast.

you are right, of course... I go back and forth all day long about it; ugh. Thank you for the thoughtful response, though, and so succint! :)

You will NEVER for one minute regret the time you have spent with your children. After all....being a parent is the most important (and underpaid) job in the world. Just remember all those wonderful times...the childrens' first words,their first steps, their funny little ways and the things they say. These moments are priceless. You can never ever go back and say..."Gee look...I've been a doctor now for 10 years and I have no debts....so I'll just go back in time and enjoy my children growing up now!" You CAN however, in 10 years, decide that now you will become a doctor and have a career. You can always do that. You are young. You have plenty of time. Enjoy what you have now and do not wonder if you have made the right decision. You have!
