QOTD 11-12

What would your dream profession be, if you could be anything?

I would be an archaeologist. I love history, and I would love to be out there discovering old relics, ruins, and mummies! I hate heat though, so that might pose a problem!

It really changes from day to day. You'd think I was 16. I taught in a cadaver lab in college for a while and would love to teach older kids again (like high school age minimum). I've also thought about becoming a u/s tech because of my anatomy background/slight obsession

Well, honestly I love being a homeschooling, SAHM, BUT, if I wasn't doing this I would love to work overseas with international adoption. My second dream job would be working with the foster care system within the US.

Or a librarian....if only that involved sitting around reading books all day....HAHA

I'm a cynic. Any job is a job and will suck eventually. LOL

My dream job is to be a SAHM. Smile But I would also love to be an interior designer...I actually considered this when I was trying to decide what to do after highschool but thought it wasn't a pratical decision. Who knows though how it would have turned out. If I had gone that route I might be saying today I shouldve gone with my gut and become an engineer. Which is what I did. Wink

I'm kinda with Heather too. I don't like having to do work when I don't want to, no matter what it is. And I don't want to all too often. Blum 3

If I could do it I would want to be a book editor. I can write, but I find that I like reading much much more.

I'd be a cabinet-maker/woodworker. I do have a very small woodworking business but I'm self-taught and would love to actually learn and be a professional.

If you don't like doing work, then you don't want to be a SAHM!! Wink Seriously, on call 24/7!!!!! Although, if you train your charges well, the workload does ease up as they get older!

Yes, I have friends that say, "well you should have an easier time keeping your house clean, because you are at home." I find it is the complete opposite, it is so much harder to keep my house clean because we LIVE in it all day. I can clean up something and immediately someone is wrecking it!

I do enjoy it , though. There are just quite a few people out there that don't understand. Sorry for the rant! Smile

Oh I realize being a SAHM is hard work! It's just the only work that I think is continually enjoyable because I like to be with my kiddos. Smile

That's exactly how I feel!! Although, I do think it would give me a little more time to do laundry and cleaning. I feel like I spend the majority of the free time I do have with DS is spent cleaning, cooking and laundry.

The hope is one day to be a children's writer with the ability to be a SAHM the majority of the time Wink

Oh and hire someone to do the cleaning and laundry....I like to cook, so I'll keep that one.

I couldn't be a SAHM...I'd go insane. My actual job is easier than caring for ONE toddler, let alone several. I'm scared for my year off on maternity leave where I have TWO kids at home. Eeeek! We'll probably keep DD in daycare one day a week to keep her spot and to give me a break.

All these SAHM comments are cracking me up. I agree that people that haven't done it have no idea. I stayed at home with DS1 for the first 2 years and then went to work full-time after that. I was like, wow! working is so much easier! I actually enjoyed it which kinda made me feel guilty because I always wanted to be a SAHM. I have been home with DS2 for a year and work from home which i love but it would be much easier to go back to work. For now I will do the extra hard work it takes to raise my own kids while they are young.

I stayed at home for the first year of K's life (Maternity Leave) so I knew work would be easier. LOL

I was a SAHM until dd1 was 5 and ds was 2 and then I had to work outside the home, after I had Malia I quit my accounting career and opened an in home daycare so I am a WAHM and have my 3 plus 5 extras. I can say, without a doubt, my dream job is being a SAHM.
