what do I want to be

I am done making babies. Now what?

I got laid off when I was pregnant with Taylor, it shook my word but it was okay.  We went forward planning our life, I did not need a new job.  I decided to say home.

By stay home, I mean not go to a job that pays me, we are never home.

In the past five years I have become a wife, mother,  runner, parents club president,  coach,  MBA, blogger...and I am sure many other things.

I am still unsure of what I want to be when I grow up.

I feel so blessed and fortunate that I am able to stay home, but I am getting the itch to do more.  Maybe because Taylor will start kindergarten in the fall.

I am not ready to be gone all day, but maybe 10 to 15 hours a week, a few mornings or days a week would be good.

I would like to be a part time professional and a full time mom.

It is not easy to find professional work on a part time basis.

Any suggestions?

    I went through (am going through) the same thing you are! Being a SAHM is a pretty difficult job and when I went back to school they asked me that dreaded "What do you want to be when you grow up question?" and I think I decided I don't want to grow up : )

  2. I have gone through this for the past 13 years! I am 44 and still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. It is a blessing to be able to ponder it.

  3. I'm still in the same boat. My youngest is 5. It would be lovely to do 'something' but what??

  4. I know exactly how you feel. I'm hoping my blog may someday cover the cost of diapers. Maybe find something easy in retail for something you love (books, clothes, jewelry, shoes...) then you'd get a discount!
