Being a doctor's wife ain't easy.
The dream of all Asian women - or at least their parents' - is to marry a doctor. (Or if they come from a more progressive, educated family, the women can become doctors themselves.) So what happens when that "dream" is achieved?
Is it pure wedded bliss...while eating bonbons and sitting on a couch while watching eps of General Hospital? Apparently not, as I recently got just a glimpse as to what life's actually like for those dr's wives who have kids and no nanny.
(Aside: I have not seen their house, so perhaps a luxe life makes up for the hardships?)
Basically, this wife, a self-proclaimed Type A personality, sounded more like a manager. All her children are heavily involved in dance, hockey, whatever, so she does spend a lot of time scheduling, shuffling the children from school - activity - back home, etc. She has 3 children under the age of 11-12.
Whenever I see her, she looks perfect. Her hair is perfect, her outfit is suitable for the occasion - but I did spot her white, Chanel J12 watch the last time I saw her, and she is fit. No flab anywhere. She must work out. She is friendly yet none of her husband's family speak to her.
Her children are well-behaved. I can have a proper conversation with her eldest, a son, without baby-talking or dumbing-down my conversation. He can articulate about their recent vacation in Italy. It is obvious that him and the other children attend private school.
Before it takes me another week+ to finish this thought, when it boils down to it, it sounded like a j-o-b, job a la managerial vein.
