Today over at Corporette, we’re talking about what hobbies are on your bucket list — as in, what you are too busy for right now but hope to one day learn or do. So I thought a related and fun topic over here might be what hobbies are on PAUSE now that you’ve got kids — and what hobbies have you ADDED to your bucket list since having kids? Examples of bucket list additions might be designing a maternity line of clothes for working mothers or coaching a kids’ soccer team. They don’t have to be “when the kids are grown and out of the house” kinds of bucket list things — just “sometime later that is not now.”
For me, I never thought I’d want to be on a school board or something like that — but in most places it’s a great example of a small elected position for getting more involved in local politics and having an impact on your community. (The founder of Run for Something recently noted the advantages of starting really local — and remember, Madeleine Albright got her political start sitting on school boards!)
Ladies, what hobbies have you “paused” now that you’ve got kids? What new hobbies are now on your bucket list that you only got interested in because of your kids, their interests or experiences, or your life as a mother?
