Ahhh, the Work at Home Mother. People are eager to tell you that being a WAHM is the “best of both worlds,” and at face value, it is. You are earning income for your family, maintaining your career trajectory, and pursuing interests outside of the home. All without having to figure out childcare options! People picture you playing with your babies all morning, tucking them in for their naps, and completing eight hours worth of work in a two hour period, before greeting your little ones when they wake and heading to the park.
Ha. Ha! Hahahahahaha!!!
Because it’s all fun and games until someone misses a deadline. Or a child is screaming in the background during a work call. Or your kids are too sick to head to their normal childcare locations.
So if you’re a Work At Home Mama- whether you’re a blogger, a freelancer, or if you work remotely- we’re right there with you. It’s not always easy, but when it works- MAN does it work. Over the last couple of years, we’ve come up with some VERY creative childcare solutions to get our missions accomplished, even with five kids five and under in tow.
