The Lily
She chose to be a stay-at-home mom. Sometimes she feels guilty.
Kristina Park never thought she’d want to stop working as an attorney. But during her pregnancy, she found it difficult to envision leaving her son with a nanny. She decided to become a stay-at-home mother. When talking with friends, some of whom knew her when she was an attorney, Park struggles to feel proud of the choice she made. “Nora Knows What to Say” is an advice series from The Lily and Nora McInerny, author of “No Happy Endings” and host of the podcast “Terrible, Thanks for Asking.” She knows all about navigating challenges. In 2014, her husband died of brain cancer, her father died and she miscarried her second child — all in the span of seven weeks. In this series, McInerny helps readers of The Lily prepare for difficult conversations. The Lily is a publication from The Washington Post that elevates stories critical to women’s lives. Watch new episodes of “Nora Knows What to Say” every Thursday.
