I’ve been working on a resume of sorts. Thank goodness Word has templates kindly emphasizing education over employment because I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for the last decade or so. Before that, I was a housewife. Before that, I was a student. Before that, I was a baby.
Oh, sure, I had a few part-time jobs here and there, but I’ve never had what you could call a career. I didn’t need one. I’ve never kicked off a pair of high heels after a particularly tough day at the office, which is a good thing because I walk like a man in drag in heels. Worse, actually. I’ve never occupied a cubicle. I’ve never been asked to fax anything.
The very moment my son turned thirteen, it became abundantly clear to me that he no longer needed me in the way he did for the previous thirteen years.
