    Oh yes, I truly understand that feeling. Honestly, I really think people have that reaction no matter what if they don’t REALLY understand what you do. For instance, when I was working (before I got pregnant of course) my hubby’s family would ask me what I did for a living. Keep in mind that I was in the IT field, computer information security to be more specific. Whenever I told them what I did at my job or even tried to explain things in a less “techy” manner, I would typically just get a blank stare or a surprised look followed by a polite, “Oh, wow”. Then the conversation would typically shift to my hubby’s job, a police officer. Aha! Something much more easily understood and recognized! I was typically left feeling somewhat hurt and devalued simply because of the misunderstanding. Like my work was somehow inferior to my husband’s even though I worked extremely hard to get where I was in the IT field, with earning two certifications and a degree within a few years.

    What I’m trying to say is this: who cares what people think? As long as you love what you do and you can bring home some bacon while you do it, that is all that matters. You are one blessed lady 🙂
