For YEARS I've had trouble answering this question.
I'm a stay at home mum....Their eyes glass over.
Domestic Engineering.......They look at me like I'm some kind of tosser.
I'm not actually sure what I do.....They walk away and go talk to someone else.
NOW.....after returning to the casual workforce, I find the answer that is right for me.
I MANAGE home mainly.....and I work casually a couple of days per month. Now I am greeted with this sense of understanding from both women and men. They seem to get that managing a home is big and complicated. Its not just about kids, it's about everything I do.
Its only taken me 11 years of being a stay at home mum to figure it out....the pointy ends aren't very sharp over in my patch!
