Do you have any idea at all in what type of area you'd like to consider?

Quoting Courtney610:

I'm trying to figure this out. My youngest is 3. I've been a SAHM for 5 years. It works for us, but I know that if I get a job, well be Able to save more money towards 3 college educations and retirement.



I'm 28, which is still considered to be young. I just don't want to get stuck in a career path I hate, when I don't even have to work.

Lol! Thanks Punkie.
When my kids are grown I think it'll be a nice time to explore hobbies and things I don't have time for now.
But yes, Anon, it really is. Why is it that people can aspire to be a teacher but I can't aspire to teach my children?


Quoting Punkie74:

She'll probably take up a career of criticizing people on Cafemom hiding behind the anonymous button.



Quoting Anonymous:

Really? You don't have any dreams? What will you do when your children grow up and move out?

Photojournalist that travels the world getting stories. Or perhaps a worker for some sort of non-profit that also involved world travel and working with indigenous communities.

Wildlife rescuer/rehabilitator.

I am almost done with my degree and will be an elementary educator. I hope someday to use that to work with children in different countries, especially countries where educational resources are limited. That is hard to plan to do with little kids though. I still hold out hope that someday I will work at or own a small rescue.

Me too. I wouldn't need to be famous though. Just successful enough to see my books in print and know people are reading them.

I wasn't attacking her.  I was just asking if she had any plans for after her kids grow up and leave the house.  I have nothing against SAHMs, I am one.  My dream is to become a psychologist.  I love psychology and I'm in the process of getting my degree.

Quoting Punkie74:

Like you subtle attack at SAHM's??

Quoting Anonymous:

That was subtle.



I prefer to remain anonymous for many reasons.
