I try and get my older two (7 and 5) interested in my work and let them know I don’t just stare at my computer all day.
I showed them how I create walk-thrus with @WalkMe that float along the screen. I kept saying “Look you see this balloon, mommy made that for @Sprinklr!”
They weren’t super interested, but when we were at the playground the other day they introduced me to their new friends and said: “This is my mommy, she makes balloons”
I thought that was a pretty decent way for my kids to explain what I do for a living, and definitely more of a conversation starter with the other parents who overheard than just “my mommy calls people all day.”
There were definitely some follow up questions
from the other kids:
What color balloons?
Can you play with the balloons too?
Can she make a blue balloon right now?!
How have you tried to explain what you do with to your younger kids? Do they get it?
Do they think you make balloons, or talk to people all day?
