  • I will be finishing school when my kids get a bit older, and I will be going back to work too. So I guess you could say I will be starting a new one because I don't plan on working for minimum wage the rest of my life unless I have to.

  • Oh lord, I wish I had a job! I'm tired of the four walls and my kids!!! I just finished college. I didn't work my last semester because I was focusing on finishing. Now, I'm a stay at home mom. I got my BA cuz I want to get started in a good career and start making $$$$$! I need to feel secure in the fact that I can take care of my kiddos independently if I have to. I also would just love having the double income and being able to build up financial viability! So, career, here I come!

  • Well by definition as a stay home mom.....I am not trying to keep up with anything except my children, I would would have to take time away from the kids to go to school so that is out, and all the work I do is home with the kids. I would like a nap not an outside job.

  • oh wow, that sounded not tired of my kids...i just mean the isolation and it being just us most of the time...we need to get out more!

  • I wanted to start working after my kids started school but I need to find a job now

  • I've already did the career thing. My income was always secondary, and not needed. I worked because I wanted to. My husband and I are quite content with me being a housewife. :) My son is 16, and will be going off to college in the next two years, so I'm trying to get myself acclimated to my soon to be "new" title. :)

  • I haven't worked i about 33 years! and have no intentions of doing so now!

  • I do a little free- lance design and illustration work....just enough to keep my hand in.

    I plan on doing more when the kids are older, but this little bit is good for now.
