I think the admin of this web site is actually working hard in favor of his site, as here every material is quality based information.

Heya i am for the primary time here. I found this board and I find It truly helpful & it helped me out much. I hope to offer something again and aid others like you helped me.

That's the kind of image that i really thing is super image like. If more images very real like this were out there we'd be super full of graet images in the world.

Your essay is good except for some spelling mistake.

think going to an office still makes WAHM-dom challenging, but I think it's also one way to deal with the challenges you have.

I have been a WAHM for 7 years. The only way I found balance was to work before all the kids got up. Up at 4:00 and done for the day at 8:00, sometimes there was overlap, but as my kids got older, they were always willing to watch WONDERPETS till I was done.

This school year changes everything since all 3 will be in school at the same time. I'll be able to work during the day. *I can't wait!

Thank you so much for this interview. I am a WAHM with a 3.5 yr old. My husband and I run our own sales business and he travels a lot making sales calls. I am home trying to input orders into the computer and answer mostly emails and a few phone calls. Up until this last year it has been a huge struggle trying to balance it all. I tried really hard to work before she woke up and after she was in bed, but she wasn't sleeping through the night and exhuastion set in. I think I am finally at a point where it is working for me. I work while my daughter is awake, but I stop what I am doing and tend to her needs throughout the day. She starts preschool this year so that will give me a few extra hours of un-interrupted work time. Now if I could just figure out if it will still work if we have another child.

Amanda - I do find that it's way easier to get work done with kids around when they are very little. There's just so much down time and they certainly don't need to be entertained and stimulated as much. (Or that's what I'm telling myself).

I think going to an office still makes WAHM-dom challenging, but I think it's also one way to deal with the challenges you have. I actually rent as part of a group office space; haven't used it as much since my sitter time has been cut down - but boy did it make a difference to GET OUT of the house.

I have to be the oddball out here. I worked from home part-time after my son was born, and I didn't go back to work full-time until he was 9 months old. I realize that's a short timeframe compared to families with school-aged children, but I did find ample time to get work done. My job involved a lot of production, and aside from the odd fussy day, the situation was ideal. Do you think that being able to go in to an office 2 days out of the week negates the challenge of being a WAHM?

Good friends of mine went through a lengthy and heated divorce, battling over custody of their unborn child. (Long story) Hubby, the delusional asshole tried to get full custody because he worked from home 40+ hrs a week and did not want his kid in daycare. And of course you can care for a newborn through school age while working in the home all day doing a phone-heavy sales job. Eventually he learned that his idea was insane. My point: you can do awesome parenting and terrific work but not at the exact same time. It is like peeing with a boner I think.

Love the interview. I'm mostly a WAHM--"mostly" because I teach two online classes from home, but have to show up in person for the one classroom course I teach at a local college. All the prep work, grading, etc, is done from home. It's great to hear how others manage the kids, the work, and the house, because I've yet to find an ideal solution.

I'm a WAHM and my daughter is still a toddler. I made a decision early on to only work when she was sleeping. That means I'm up at 4:30a and work until she wakes at 7a, then back at it during naptime and again after bedtime. For the most part, it's an okay schedule but it was born out of necessity...something about me in front of a computer or on a phone triggers wild mutant behavior from my daughter. I love to hear how other WAHM's schedule their day because I think there are little tricks we can all benefit from.

Love this and love Whitney! There's this odd misperception that if you work from home, you're not reallllly working. When I was a full-time WAHM people thought it was a luxury that I had a sitter too. But honestly, I could either get my work done or keep the kids from licking the light sockets.

Love this interview!

I have been telecommuting for 5 years for a software company and my boys have been in day care full time since they were born. I frequently get asked if they are at home! I sometimes have one at home if they are sick but if both are sick, I can't get work done.

We've had a tough time balancing everything since my husband travels for work, so we recently made the decision that I would drop down to 32 hours (and my company is awesome about part-time). I have every Friday off but am keeping the kids in school. I find I am super productive on Fridays, keeping a list all week of the things I need to get done.

This is such an enlightening exercise to me. I think you and I both use similar terminology, imagining that we are "splitting our time" between work and kids, but we are seeing two different solutions. Can't wait to hear others weigh in. Thanks so much for having me do this!
