I am a pathology resident, a research scientist, and a tutor for the USMLE exams. Most importantly, though, I am a mom. I have two kids, and want a few more. For some reason, stirring a huge pot of stew and roasting three chickens at a time to feed a crowd of hungry teenagers and their friends is my idea of a good time. Sure, when I was in college, I liked going out. But now, my idea of a great night out is catching fireflies in the backyard.
