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 months. I am so much more than just a mom.
In addition to being just a mom, I am a –
- Professional diaper changer
- Appointment Setter
- Lucky woman
How do you respond when people ask you the dreaded, “So…what do you do?” question?
