I'm a work-at-home mom; I sell stuff online. It allows me to contribute to the family coffers while taking care of my children. Yes, I do run around with the kids in the morning. I take them to the parks, the bounce house, the library for story times, the play area at the mall, etc. After lunch, I put them down for a nap and that's my time to work. I work fast and furious because the moment one of them wakes up, that's the end of my work hour. On busy days, I wake up an hour or two earlier or stay up later after I put the kids in bed to catch up on work.
I love my life; I sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not just dreaming. I love taking care of my children. At any given time (except when my oldest goes to a 2.5 hour preschool twice a week), my kids are always within hearing distance from me. I prepare all their meals, give them baths, change every diaper, kiss boo boos, play, read, and snuggle with them. They are my world.
I live a wonderful life. Well, that's how I feel most days anyway. Very rarely, I feel like there's not enough hours in a day, the post office is stupid for losing yet another package, I have bajillion emails from customers asking inane questions, and I'm in danger of getting lost in an avalanche of dirty laundry pile (I sooo need a housekeeper.)
I hope you join me in this blog as I attempt to document my life as a work-at-home mom. I'm not an expert by any means, just an ordinary mom making a living at home while taking care of my children.
If you're a WAHM wannabe and wondering if it's really possible to have your cake and eat it too, my answer is a resounding YES! It can be done. I'm doing it (mind you, I'm not special by any means) and if you want it bad enough, I bet you can do it too.
