Is it because you also became a mother, and you've learned if you can do that, then getting a PhD is easy! Is that ?! Am I right?! Is it?! :lol:

Didn't think so! Hahahaha!

Congrats, that's quite an achievement. I vicariously went through that whole process with my niece, and I know how much work is involved. Good for you!

Thanks everyone. Interesting juxtaposition: the day I defended my dissertation, an in-law popped out a kid. I had only one family member attempt to equate my accomplishment with pushing out a kid. I shut that shit right down.

^^^ There's always one clown at the circus.

Congratulations on your PhD. That's definitely something to be proud of.

PhDs aren't easy (hell, I don't even have a bachelor's). Congrats! That's way more of an accomplishment than having unprotected sex and then waiting nine months.
