Well, because I’m self-employed I haven’t really had to deal with employee discrimination in any type of way. So I don’t have to face job discrimination quite as much. You know, logistically, it can be really difficult to find childcare but I think that’s more because I have such sporadic hours and a schedule that’s sort of here, there and everywhere. But if I was in the job market I might have more insight to that question.

What’s the most challenging aspect of raising your kid(s)?

The most challenging aspect is the logistical part. I can’t just get up and go anytime I want, like I said, I’m sort of a free spirit. I have to learn, I have to be home at night after she goes to bed I have to stay there until she wakes up in the morning, you know the scheduling of things– taking her to school, picking her up, those are the hours I have to work, in between that time, I can’t keep working until 6 p.m. because I have to get her from school and then come home and make a snack and then clean the house and make dinner and get her ready for bed. That part is really difficult, working around the schedule of having a child. It’s a very busy life. I can’t schedule things as I want to have them scheduled, I have to schedule them around life as a parent.

What’s the most rewarding aspect of raising your kid(s)?

Life is so much richer; it’s so much more full. There are so many experiences I get to have and conversations. It just takes life to a new depth. It’s so fantastic.
