It was at this time that I’m asked, “So… do you have a real job?”
I swallowed. Hard. This wasn’t the time to get on my soapbox and talk about how staying home with my daughter IS a job…
Or was it exactly the right time? I should have…I wish I did. Instead I said that my “other” job is freelance writing which allows me to have time at home to, ya know, grow a person.
Having written about two sisters involved in the limelight, this is an interesting perspective. My characters’ mother would definitely not have shared this thought!
