+ I was/am a babysitter. (The best one, hands down!)
+ I worked at a daycare for ten months, but left when they wouldn't give me a raise from $5.15.
+ I spent two school years working at a church preschool.
+ I worked from home as a daycare provider for awhile.
+ I worked as a nanny for a few years too. At one point, I was watching 6 kids under 4 and loving every moment of it. I only left because the children's grandfather (in his 40's, his daughter was close to my age) wanted to sleep with me, and I couldn't deal with the stress of his wife working there assuming I was sleeping with her husband.
+ I started my current job three years ago, working at a doctors office. I have enjoyed it way more than I ever imagined. Infact, I was offered the job a year before I began, but declined it even after the interview.
I am giving my notice Tuesday. It's a bittersweet time. A year ago, it would have been almost impossible to leave. But now, not so much. The office drama is beyond bullshit. I will dearly miss my patients and feel bad about leaving some of my co-workers though.
I plan on spending awhile working on my online business. If I notice it's not working out, I'll venture out into the working world again.
But my ultimate dream job is to be a Mom. No college degree or amount of zeros on a paycheck will give me greater satisfaction than that title.
So, what have you done? What do you do now? What's your dream job?
