Being a WAHM (work at home mom) means the freedom to do whatever it is the day calls for. Whether that be house work, playing with the girls, or just running all over town. I love being able to, at the drop of a hat, go to the store, or stop by to see family. I've been "blessed" with a very spontaneous family. Unlike me, who has small children, my family loves to surprise me with things they need me to do, as well as things they would like me to do with them. It's nice to be able to be there with them allowing my girls to grow up around tons of family, something that I never got to experience.
Being a WAHM also gives me a sort of piece of mind knowing that I'm bringing in an income so that my husband isn't burdened with all of our finances. Living on just one income in this day and age is just about impossible.
I also like the connection with other moms like me in my business. It's nice being able to work along side other business minded women. I love the interaction and team work. Being a WAHM is sharing, really. I honestly think I would go completely stir crazy if it weren't for my team giving me a constant grounding.
Most of all being a WAHM means giving my girls all the attention necessary to acquire all their skills and to reach each developmental plateau. I'm exceedingly glad that I don't have to rely on somebody else to make sure that my girls are at the stage that they should be at. I personally don't want them where they "should" be, I want them to be the best. I know that is how every good mother feels, and the opportunity to make sure this happens is the best feeling in the world. I truly feel sorry for those corporate moms who don't get to experience what us WAHMS do.
