The board function doesn't yield everyone's names. We have some newbies and I wanted them to see how many of us are not who they think we are. I see too often new comers assume I am a wohp - as well as several other posters- mainly because we tend to defend wohps from more militant sahms.

I fall into two of your categories so I will reply here.

I WAHPT for a neighbor who publishes two real estate magazines.

I also WOHPT for a local firm.

IRL, most people assume I'm a SAHM and for several years I was. I currently only work a few hours a week for the firm while my kids are at school. The at-home work is cyclical basis and most of it is done at night.

Three of my kids are in school FT and I have one preschooler.

For this board I would fall under WOHP.

But often those acronyms are only used to describe those with minor children and I no longer have minor children.

When I first replied I had not scrolled down to see there was an other category. That may be a better category for me. Working woman of adult children.

In the past I was a SAHP (12.5 years), a part time WOHP and a full time WOHP.
