I got my first job when I was 15. I worked in a little boutique selling overpriced kids clothes. Since that entry into the working world, I’ve worked at a library, a horse stable, an amusement park, a doctor’s office, a bookstore, various arts organizations, a public health non-profit and now, at my laptop in my living room tapping out blog posts. I’ve taught in a college classroom, raised money, actied in children’s theatre, managed Congressional communications for a lobbying office, and been a research assistant.
And of course, I’ve been a mom.
I’ve been a stay at home parent for the past two years and will likely keep at it until my younger child is ready for kindergarten. But knowing I’m in this for the long haul doesn’t stop me from speculating what I might do when I return the working world eventually. Sure, I could call my old contacts and see what sort of opportunities are out there in my field. Or…I could explore uncharted territory. I could use the many skills I’ve developed from being a mom – skills in the areas of disinfecting surfaces, dodging Lego obstacle courses, and convincing unwilling children to do horrible, horrible things like picking up their clothes – and translate them into a brand new career. Often, as I go about some mom task, I think about what kind of career would be a good fit for what I’m doing.
