"My main job is being a mom but just like my sisters, I am also a detective! I look for clues all day to solve mysteries like “where did all the spoons go? who ate all the ice cream? Why are all my clothes shrinking? What is that SMELL?! Why is the dog in the neighbors car? What is causing that funky smell in the fridge? Or Why cant boys just put the seat down?! and oh boy, do I love it when I solve the mystery!! I dont make much money being a detective but the benefits are better than any other detective agency around." - June
"My day job is now much like the job I did as secretary at a school for 20 years, and yet also very different. I do spreadsheets, word processing, data bases, phone calls, scheduling etc. for about 260 students K-12. But unlike my secretary job at the school, I now work with 200 young people from ages 19 to 25 and don't get paid a cent, except in eternal blessings. I love my "job" and I get to work with my husband in the office right next door all day." - Lynda
"As a mother of four kids, my day job changes daily. This year I decided to ADD being a Head Coach for my sons F-Minor baseball team. Coaching 12 boys between the ages of 9 - 11 has been much fun. Dealing with parents that have quiet a "passion" for baseball has taught me much patience" - Eva
"I am a more than a wife and mother and A big part of my day is spent thinking about, loving, worrying about, planning for and communicating with my 28 grandchildren. The best job in the world" - Lynda
"I am a Professional Photographer & Family Memory Keeper. I love being paid to take portraits for other people. If I got paid for all the photos I have taken of my own family I would already be a billionaire." - Schona
"I strive to find balance and peace in my everyday comings and goings as a stay at home. I hope to give my kids the love and understanding they need to go out and face the world. i love my job!!!" - Tifani
"I have a "real" day job but was praying to find a way to stay home with my kids instead. I had a very vivid dream about making cupcakes and I followed my dream LITERALLY and started a home based cupcake company." - Sarah
"My day job is taking care of myself, learning to love every bit of me, making art every day, changing what needs changing, and accepting what needs accepting. My day job is nurturing the body I have been given, sharing freely with others, learning to love more fully. (Occasionally you can catch me making you a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee house.)" - Jennifer
"I am a SAHM (stay at home mom), and I feel very fortunate to be. I love my boys, and I love that I don't miss many things due to work. I worked for the first 5 years of my oldest son's life, so I know that guilt, and I know how hard it is. I am now able to make and sell jewelry in my "spare" time, as well and dabbling in sewing and other craftiness. This is usually how it looks while I craft. I wouldn't have it any other way." - Amber
"I've been retired for 16 years. I'm still very active, I teach Tai Chi, play cards and dominoes, travel, work 1-3 days, part-time at Barnes and Noble, read 100+ books a year. When I have nothing scheduled, I quilt. I consider quilting my "day job". This photo shows the quilts that I haven't gifted or sold. Quilting is a great creative outlet; this month marks my two year quilting anniversary." - Jan
-A commonly asked question "What do you do?" Here is a time when "labels" can be placed on us or we can place them on ourselves. And all labels aren't bad. This is a time that we have to choose a category or a word to tell people what we do. SO - What's your profession?
Are you a stay at home mom? Are you a nurse? Are you a business owner? are you a photographer, secretary, crosswalk guard, etc? Are you several of those things? pick one to highlight and snap a photo to share!
Here's a little ode to working women everywhere!
