  • I worked as a nurse full time before our children came along...then, I couldn't imagine returning to work but still needed to bring in an income so I started my own home daycare until just last June....did that for 6 1/2 years until our two children were both off to school full time. Now, I am a proud stay at home mom with a hubby who loves it that I can be home for our kids before and after school as well as all summer and I am so grateful to be able to!

  • I didn't have an "occupation", lol.  I worked at Wal-mart (so glamorous) in the seafood department.  I quit before my oldest was even born because it sucked so bad to be around raw fish and meat while pregnant.  I've been a SAHM ever since (over 10 years now).
