I Want To Be A College Graduate

Recently my husband and I were discussing some things and it came up that he didn't understand why I was in college.  I was annoyed surprised by this.  

I know the reason that he can't wrap his head around it, and that is because I tell him constantly how much I want to be a "Stay at home mom".  He knows that, and thinks I don't need a degree.  

What I know is that I enrolled in an Associates Degree program in 2006.  I started full time, and then things changed, jobs changed, and life changed.  I started part time again this past Fall.  Today I begin my final two classes, and will get my Associates Degree in May.  

I said to my husband "Well I'm not a stay at home mom am I?"  in a heated fashion.  He didn't want to talk about it from the start, because he knew I would get upset. "Someday our kids will be in school, and I'll probably want to get a job again.".  And I concluded my argument with "Plus, I started this and I want to finish it!"  

That's the biggest reason.  I started this and it seems silly not to finish it.  I'm so close I can taste it.  There's a chance that I will never need an Associates Degree in Business Management in my future job endeavors, but I need it for myself.  

I will hold my degree with pride, because the road to get there hasn't been easy.
