Baby Stucks: I refuse to be unhappy!

My husband, sweet man, spares me the challenge of reading the Economist cover to cover. Instead, he selects a few articles from each issue that he thinks I’d enjoy. Recently, he selected one entitled “Generation Xhausted,” which talks about how people are having children later. “The most grueling part of child-rearing now coincides with the make-or-break phase of careers,” it says. True. I find myself in this same conundrum. But it also says I won’t be truly happy again until my 50s. I refuse to accept that!

There’s got to be a better answer, don’t you think? I would love to hear your thoughts.
