So today my (future) niece was born. I’m absolutely thrilled and loved going to the hospital to see her.
I can’t help but be a “typical girl” and put together the timeline of when I’ll have my own baby. Don’t worry, I have zero desire to have one soon; I’m good being the awesome aunt. I just wonder if I’ll ever be able to balance my career goals with being a parent.
I have three years of law school, the Bar, then starting out in a practice. I’ve wanted to have kids somewhat early my whole life but it’s almost slipping away. Being a partner at a law firm is an ultimate goal of mine and it’s going to take a lot of work. I’m not sure how to balance that with having my own family.
For now, I’m ecstatic to have my adorable niece and the future that is ahead of me. But I can’t help but wonder if a career and family can peacefully coexist.
