what i do.
i was caught off guard meeting a young mother who has kids the same ages of some of my kids.
(when you have lots of kids, EVERYONE has a kid about the same age as yours...)
this girl asked, "what does your husband do?"
i explained again, "he is a professor at OSU, that's why we moved here."
her husband worked at the university also.
and then she asked, "and what do you do?"
"i, uh... nothing. i stay at home. what do you do?"
she explained that she recently lost 50 lbs and was now a healthy living life coach on her way to a business conference in Florida.
as she explained her work to me, I was remembering my own answer "nothing, i stay at home" and wishing i could try again..
i stay at home?!
even if i added, "i'm so LUCKY!! I get to stay home with my children."
or "i do laundry."
that would have been better.
why, thank you for asking.
a child development consultant.
a household manager.
an assistant professor.
an occupational therapist.
a child psychologist.

hey, i'm a healthy living life coach too!
i'm a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend.

i create harmony and peace and order and fun.

and, i don't stay at home... much.
