Alternative "Stay-at-home-mom" Titles

We had our taxes done today and when I said I was a stay at home mom, she listed me as a Domestic Engineer! We have never heard that before and thought it was hilarious! Just for fun, I am curious to hear other clever "titles" that you have heard, or can come up with. Have a great weekend!

What can I do next?

Well, it's not very creative but when talking to friends (usually if they are working moms) they ask "are you still doing the mommy thing?". I heard it so much now when people ask me what I do I usually say "I'm doing the mommy thing right now". I like it, because that's what I hear 24/7 "mommmmmmmmyyyyyyyy!". It works for me.

I'm toying with going ahead and listing "Product Developer" and "Project Manager" on my resume -although I'll get called for it in interviews! I cannot imagine any more of a painstaking, labor-intensive, exhausting -yet rewarding product or project than a child! If you are successfully "managing" the raising and development of a kid, you really can do SO many things!

If you want to get really technical, in reality we wouldn't be able to fit our "job titles" on the little space they give you on the page...
Wife, Mother, Teacher, Nurse, Referee, Maid, Chef, Taxi, Business Manager, Banker, Volunteer, Art Director, Drill Sargent, Time Manager, Schedule Coordinator..

Shall I go on?

I don't like the title "stay at home mom". I usually refer to myself as a full time homemaker. I know it is an outdated title and some think it is soooo 1950's , archaic or repressive to woman's rights. But, when it all comes down to it, a homemaker is what I am. I am making my house a home with all that I do and I do it full time. I take pride in what I do. Some joke about being a slave and I hope it is really in jest. It gives homemakers a bad rap if we are portrayed as slaves...who would aspire to be with their family full time if they thought it as being akin to a slave. I am teaching my sons and daughter that I love what I do...regardless of a paycheck!

For taxes, I'm a sahm, but in "real life" we say I'm a household manager. Because I'm rarely at home, I use a lot of organizational and time management skills, etc to keep the house clean and running smoothly, menus are planned out ahead of time (and posted on the fridge), keeping in mind everyone's weekly schedules, I shop sales and coupon to keep things within budget, pay all the bills, run any errands, make any appointments that need to be made, drive the kids to their classes and activities, a lot of time educating them spiritually, emotionally, and scholastically, try to keep the marriage thing going strong, etc. My husband is awesome at his job, I'm great at mine too. He even had his coworkers contact the company that makes their corporate trophies and plaques to make one specially for me (they do quarterly "excellence in action" awards, and this fall when we were having a big dinner party with coworkers and neighbors to say goodbye before moving away, he surprised me by standing up and making the sweetest speech about how his promotion and transfer wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't been taking care of everything on the homefront to allow him to concentrate on work, and he wanted to acknowledge me and gave me the coolest, really pretty trophy in a beautiful box, and a laminated certificate that looked just like the official corporate "excellence in action" certificates but listing my skills and great work in what I do as a household manager (haha). And his secretary made a shirt for HIM that said "It's not me, it's A.!" to answer all his congratulations and pats on the back, which made everyone laugh. (Of course, it's funny because everyone knows he IS good at what he does and works very very hard at it). Very cool to have the cool title though, and the acknowledgement to go with it. It's very rare for we moms to be officially acknowledged, but it's an awesome job and one to be proud of.
