Working moms- Do you work by choice or out of necessity?

What kind of job do you have? Just curious, not trying to start drama. :)

  • By Choice. I am a Librarian at a college with a Master's and B.A. I always knew I'd be a working mom. It is hard, but it is important to me to keep my career and to show my daughter that you can have both a family and a career.

  • I have been both. I was a SAHM for 4 years ( age2-6) enjoyed it very much. Then the ecconomy down turn effected our income very much. When DS started school, I headed back to work to insure my family finacialy. I dont really enjoy being back at work (in a casino) because of the diffrent hours and holidays that we work. But with the extra money, as the ecconomy comes back up, I hope to finish a degree and get a job with better hours.
