Why So Judgey?

It's officially four weeks until I will be back on the air, co-hosting a morning radio show on a Top 40 station.  I can't even express how excited I am!  Early mornings and all, I can't wait to get back on the air!  I just love my job and the people I get to work with.  It's going to be so much fun to get to chat with all of you again and be back in the loop on today's best music.  Pumped!
I have enjoyed my maternity leave and feel so incredibly lucky to live in a country where I am able to take an entire year off work to be with my new babe.  That being said, I am ready to get back to work.  I am very fortunate that with my job, I will get to spend afternoons with Thomas everyday.  Jeremy will be with T while I am at work, and then we will swap so he can go to work.  It does not escape me how incredible this is.  I am so fortunate that my bosses and the powers that be recognize how important this arrangement is for our family.  They are just being so very supportive. 
I am, however, running into a large number of people who are not supportive of my return to work.  It seems many people, some I know, some strangers, feel it's their place to tell me that I am doing my family a disservice and should not be working.  First of all, I am not really sure why it's someone else's role to tell me that I am making a mistake.  I know I will be a better parent to Thomas and a better wife to Jeremy by going back to work.  Kudos to the women who stay home.  It's the hardest job in the world, hands down.  Bravo to you!  I don't judge you for staying home, so please, lay off the judgement of me.  Can't we all just relax, listen to the radio, have fun and smile?
