The Thing I Love Most About My Job

I have a few jobs.

I have the job of being a stay at home mom, and I have the job of working from home on the computer.

One is definitely the most important and the other one allows me to be a stay at home mom but also work outside the home, although technically, I’m not working outside the home.

{What other job would allow me to get all dressed up in hip new jewelry just to stay home? Too bad the effect is ruined with a super hero band-aid.}

I love that I can have a job that allows me to work with some pretty talented women and yet always be available to my children and husband.  When my kids get home from school I’m done working for the day and I can concentrate on all the things that need my attention like their homework and shuttling them from here to there, making dinner, origami, and underwater basket weaving.  Plus, I vowed when I was a child that when I became a mom, I was going to work just as hard as my children.  See, when I was a child, I was convinced I had the hardest job in the world.  I want my children to see that I’m not sitting home watching TV while they are slaving away at recess all day at school!!!!  I have important tasks to do like Facebook and Twitter updates, and let’s not forget the power of Google +.

All joking aside though, the thing that I love most about my job or jobs is that I get to do them from home.  I LOVE my home.  I love the feeling I have when I’m in it.  I love my cozy, comfy places, and I love feeling like the jobs I’m doing are helping my children become better, more responsible people.  I love that my job that requires online attention is helping to grow a site that is creative and beautiful and promotes moms that want to stay at home too.  I love that in my online job I work with amazingly talented women and that my “boss” has integrity by bucketfuls.

I am playing along with Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop this week and answered the prompt, “What do you love most about your job?”

    Personally, I think the superhero band-aid makes the outfit. But that’s just me ;)

    ^^ This, I love this. Finding what you love and doing it is so important in life. I hope more women {and men too} are able to carve their ways out in this world and love what they do.

    It sounds like you probably have the best job in the world…. and are one of the few who actually love what they do without question!

    This is a question I should not answer online as the hamsters who run interwebwheels will only report to the powers that be that I am disgruntled.

    I covet the work from home scenario. I hate that I am missing so much time from my kids’ day by the time that I get home and that they have to regurgitate their day after the highlights have already been given to daddy. I’m glad you enjoy what you do, Angie, and the people you work with. I will get there one day. Throwing staplers at my coworkers’ foreheads is starting to become way too hard to resist. Something’s gotta give before it comes to that because I am way too cute for jail.

    Love this. I should have written to this prompt! I’ve been so busy getting used to my new work-at-home schedule that I didn’t get to the blog today. Boo.

    You look fantastic in that picture up there by the way!

    Awe…I have missed being here! You only have to look at the smile on your face to see you love what you do and the smiles on your family’s face show that ….You are good at it, too!
