Is this classic short-term vs. long-term thinking?
Would I have been better off having kids right out of college, struggling to figure out a way to make it happen, but be 5 years ahead of the game by now? Then, when my kids are adults, I'm only 40. And this is actually the time in one's career where you probably have a role with more responsibility that you need to have more time for.
Are we doing this backwards?
