hey everyone! Was just reading through some threads here and one thing that struck me is how everyone is so dedicated to their babies and I noticed some people worked part time, some full time, some stay at home parents. I was just wondering what people did for a living? It'll be fun to find out if people in a particular profession are more prone to teaching their babies.

I'm a doctor on maternity leave at the moment, plan to go back to work part time at the end of the year. The option of staying home is getting more and more appealing though!!

Hi smile
 
I am an engineer by profession, left the job to take care of our son.  That was the toughest and now the happiest decision I ever made.  Now that he is a little older I have started working freelance...looking forward to join back sometime next year when he starts schooling.

I'm a business administrator by profession. I'm the production planner for a company and manage two departments in a plant which allows me to start work very early, work part time and be at home by 10 am so my husband can go to work. We arranged it that way so we could take care of our daughter.  yes I was very carrier oriented so I never thought I would enjoy so much being at home with my baby. I love it!  yes

I am a full time mom, although I'm not sure how much longer it will last. I also go to college part time. I have 3 classes left. I also work here on the forums, as you all know.

I work full time but the nice part is I work at HOME. So I take care of our baby and work early mornings, during naps, afternoons, whenever I can :o) I work in marketing/sales.

I am an Early Childhood Educator who is a stay home mom for the last few years. I love being home with my kids. I ran a daycare out of my home for several years and loved it. I will be returning to that shortly. I am also homeschooling my ds10yrs and dd17months.

I am an ICU nurse- I work on weekends and stay at home with the kids during the week.  The best of both worlds I suppose, but Mommy doesn't get much of a break.  I plan on going back to school for my Masters- nurse practitioner- when both kids are in elementary school.

I'm a mom(24X7 :-) ).
Ever since my DS has made entry into my life, I've been exploring early learning methods and Brillbaby has been one of the best things to happen.

As for living, my husband does it alll for me ....  LOL and he encourages me in all my endeavors.
I feel this arrangement suits us very much.
4 yrs ago, I started on my Cost Accunting degree but I'm yet to complete it.
Now I'm interesting in becoming a child educator by taking a course in it.

I use to be a bank manager/financial analyst.  I dropped out to stay home and raise my daughter.  I do not plan on reentering until my daugher is at least in grade 1.  My partner is a grain farmer.

I am a SAHM mom. Before this I attended private college to get professional qualification (i.e BAR) but the need to stay at home and took care of all my child, made me to quit from the college and stay at home...

I am happy for this decision  big grin and am thinking to continue back my studies as a part-time student at home once the baby are older enough and I can manage myself, the baby, my hubby and the house... Wink
