I’m Not “Just A Mom”

by Carrie with Children with comments closed

Last week, I attended a fun, local social media networking event (I know…nerd alert!).  It was a neat feeling to be back in my old element of the PR/marketing world and chat with people who “got” me. (For the newbies…I used to be a PR pro. Read all about me here.) I kept running into a problem though when I introduced myself to people…they would say “So…what do you do for a living?”  I was furious with myself the instant I let the following words leave my mouth –  “I’m just a mom.”

Really?! That’s all I could come up with – I’m just a mom.  What a weak attempt at describing the role I’ve had for the past 26 monthsI am so much more than just a mom.

In addition to being just a mom, I am a –

  • Professional diaper changer
  • Chauffeur
  • Appointment Setter
  • Chef
  • Housekeeper
  • Bookkeeper
  • Dishwasher
  • Wife
  • Sister
  • Daughter
  • Lucky woman

How do you respond when people ask you the dreaded, “So…what do you do?” question?
