I enjoy working. I like making money.
But, when we had our first child, I stayed home.
Not because we had planned it that way.
We were young and really never planned out what we would do and what roles we would take on.
I didn't make enough money at my furniture job to have someone watch our daughter and we didn't have anyone to watch her, so I stayed home.
And so it has always been.
I have always made some source of money.
I think I have babysat at least 40 different kids from the time I was 12 up till today.
I currently babysit for 3 different families at all different times and I work part time at a dental office. I also make a small amount of money from the advertisement on this blog. And if I have time, I list and sell things on ebay.
So, yeah, I guess that makes me somewhat of a "working mom".
I am thinking there might be a time in my near future when I will work more outside the home.
The little guy is not so little anymore.
This is both exciting and sad.
Also, how do working moms do it?
How will I keep up with the laundry and get kids off the bus and cook meals and do homework and....
For now, I am thrilled to say I have and am for the most part a stay at home mom.
How about you?
Do you work outside the home?
