A New Real Life Story!

Introducing Shimul and Roger, the latest ESP couple to join our growing Real Life Stories community!  Shimul wrote to us recently, sharing her thoughts on living as an equal partner with her husband in their pre-children years and then how they were able to hold onto these ideals as they welcomed their baby son into the family seven months ago.  We both loved her story - packed with details about how they make this work for them - and are so fortunate to be able to share it with you.

Both Shimul and Roger are mechanical engineers, and they both work at the same Fortune 500 company.  We hope you enjoy and are inspired by their story of dedication to equality - in spite of a culture that tricks us into thinking that women are the only parents who can make the work/life sacrifices when a baby comes along, employers won't go along with our plans for a balanced life, and telecommuting is not an option.  This family busts all those 'rules' and then some!

A warm welcome to Shimul, Roger, and baby D.

Are you an ESP parent?  Working toward it?  We'd love to include your story!  Drop us a line....
