(intentionally misspelled)

What do you do for work? If you're a stay at home mom, what did you do before you became a SAHM?

SAHM here.

Before becoming a SAHM I was a student. I was 19 when we had Audrey. I did work at a coffee shop very part time for about a year, and then we lived and worked in a Ronald McDonald house Brandon's last year of college.

I am the Accounting & IT Manager for a swimwear manufacturer. I also handle HR and benefits. And anything else that nobody will take responsibility for.

SAHM but I do handle the accounting for our lawn care business. I was in school before I had my 2yr old and may eventually go back and finish those last 4 classes.

I am an ER nurse. I am also SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner) certified. I work 36-44 hrs/week but will be cutting back to 32 and going back to school. Can't wait! I'm hoping this happens sooner rather than later.

HR systems analyst, working 40-50 hours/week with a 2-hour commute.

I hate being away from my baby and I wish I could be a SAHM, but DH got laid off and can't find another job in this stupid economy, so I get to be one who prevents us from becoming homeless. I need to be grateful but I'm really just pissed.

I'm a SAHM and I babysit 1 boy full time. I have a degree as a medical assistant and tried for over a year to get a job before we started TTC. I have put that on hold for now.

I'm a student actually I'm starting my senior year in a couple of weeks so I'm excited. Before I had the babies I worked at taco bell (for like a week lol), a smoothie place and last summer I was a lifeguard at a community pool. I'm doing a work study program this year so I will go to school in the morning and work at this store in the mall called hollister in the afternoon.
