I think if you ask most moms their dream is to be a stay at home mom. You know your kids will have fun, will be fed on time, get the right amount of naps in (even if the child doesn’t agree), and most of all they are safe in your care. Of course there are other benefits from staying at home with your children but one downfall is your family income might suffer with only one parent working.
When John and I were trying for baby #2 we decided that I would be a stay at home mom once the baby was born. Little did we know how horribly sick I would become in the first 5 months of pregnancy which kept me from working at around 5 weeks and on. Since having Kendall it’s been amazing to stay at home with her. I put my first daughter in day care for about 2 months when she was 7 months old and I don’t know how I was able to do it. I can’t imagine Kendall going to day care just so I could work.
Our family income did take a dip in the beginning but once we worked out our finances it’s been uphill ever since.
I’m not saying it’s easy, it definitely isn’t, but we don’t ever second guess our decision for me to stay home with the kids and I’ve never needed to look for jobs on www.workingmums.co.uk/ or any other online job search website.
Workingmums is a great resource for mom’s in the UK so I’m glad there is a legit place on the Internet that can help stay at home moms find ways to help supplement the family income by working at home, I just wish moms in the USA could find a good place to find work from home.
Are you a stay at home mom that now has to work?
