The point of this is that there are probably many more instances like this where I've known these Moms (as acquaintances) for years, just as 'so and so's Mom', and know nothing of their former career lives... does it really matter?... maybe not, but does paint a richer picture?... I think YES!
So I chimed in, not having told anyone in a long time that I also had a wonderful career 'BK' (Before Kids)... first as an Art Director in public television, then an Artist, Producer, and Account Executive in computer graphics and special effects for television... this was after receiving a BFA in painting and photography (my first love), which I have come full circle back to... as the Dad (husband of my friend) said, "Wow, I'm learning all this stuff I never knew about you before tonight, that's great!"
Yes, that was great, it feels good to say that... and my kids haven't experienced that part of my life either.
Please leave a comment... We would love to hear how you feel about your former Career Life and now Mom Life, or maybe you're a working Mom blending both together... kuddos to you!
Starting this Sunday, I will have one of my paintings in a group show at a local gallery... I'm very excited, and I thought for those of you who won't be there I'd like you to see it, and one of my other pieces too...
