But I AM working! No kidding. A stay-at-home mom's job is not a walk in the park. I've said it before and I'm going to say it again, I don't regret sacrificing my career for my kids. I worked here in the US for two large companies for over 10 years before I stopped to be a full-time mom. I'm lucky that dh shares the same views. Watching my kids grow and being there for each special moment is fulfillment for me.
So now that they're in school full-time, what's next for me? I received some emails after I posted my resume online. Yes, even with this bad economy, there are jobs out there. You need to have special skills though. I worked in the technical field so I got a lot of offers to go back. There is a problem though, I cannot work in an 8 to 5 job right now. The kids get off from school at 2:30 and leaving them all by themselves is not an option. I also got an offer for a technical sales position. A sales career can be very lucrative but then again, the hours are not right for me. Oh well, I'll have to see what other options I have.
