With an uncertain future looming, I have had to think a lot about going back to school. I do have a Bachelor's degree, but I am finding that what i wanted to do with it doesn't fit as well with the single mom lifestyle and priorities. So, I have been exploring other options and just plan to use my Bachelor's degree as a springboard. Although I did a lot of work on the side for J's various companies, I have been out of the actual workforce for six years now. I have been assessing my skills and realized that I have gained some valuable ones in mothering these particular kids. I am going to bypass the usual given ones like Chauffeur, House Cleaner, Accountant, Cook, etc. etc. I like to think that my children's unique talents have prepped me for much more specific careers.
Mothering Junior: Art critic or Physical Science Teacher (I know more about how things work than I ever did before he got curious).
Mothering Bubba: Terrorist Negotiator (he is three and a middle child. Can I get a 'hear, hear?')
Mothering Sis: Calf Roping (she will give you about 5 seconds to change her diaper before squirming away).
Think any of these will stand up in a resume?
