What’s a Mom to Do?


When a stay-at-home mom for 20-plus years needs to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up, what is she to do? It’s awesome to see my adult children, who we homeschooled through high school, maneuver these decisions, but it’s not so fun when you’re a 50-something who made a choice to stay home to raise her children and forego a career and second income. The keyword here is choice, as I don’t intend for this to sound like a Dear Diary entry. I wouldn’t change a thing.

I have skills. During those years, I volunteered, worked short-term project jobs, and have worked as a blogger and social media manager for two businesses during the last four years since moving back to AZ. But those jobs have ended and now I feel sort of lost.

It’s #EqualPayDay – Lyndsey and Bethany celebrate women being empowered to choose the careers (and lives) they want. Also, Bethany has huge announcement to make.
