Am I ruining my chance of career and personal growth?

A lot of people, especially women with childcare responsibilities, will have to take a break. I think "the pandemic + childcare" will be a fine reason for you not to take a more challenging job.That said, if you don't need the money, career developmentwise, it's probably better to spend your time getting up to speed for the roles you really want. But I expect jobs in the post-pandemic future will treat interim jobs during the pandemic like we treated jobs during the dot com bust "well yeah, it was a weird time, and lots of people were without jobs, or took jobs well below their skill level."
