Work at home mom OR Working mom??
I pondered and pondered what would be easier? Do I have an answer? NO!!! I think both jobs are tough. As a wahm you have the chance to do laundry, do food shopping when it is not busy and make dinner for your family! A working mom has barely enough time to make dinner before the kids are ready for bed! I find both moms are hard working and good moms!! Everyone is different and likes different things!! I decided to be a work at home mom to be part of my children's life! It's tough! At first, I loved it as I felt so FREE!! I was pregnant with my second son and my first son was in school for half of the day. Of course, it was easier. Now, my baby is 18 months old and my 5 1/2 yr old is at home during the summer!! I have play dates and days organized so that the kids don't get bored!! I am looking forward to seeing my oldest go back to school! It will certainly be alot easier for me to do businesses!! My youngest is a sleeper and naps 3 hours in the afternoon.
I have been a working mom and it was tough. I only had one child and I could not imagine what my life would be like if I had to take one child to elementary school and the second child to daycare, make dinner, do laundry, wash dishes, clean house, do food shopping etc!! And go to work!! I still think both jobs are tough!! I now know why God made women the way we are!!! I don't think that my husband could handle it all!!
