I was taking a class recently from a well known designer--she is on the design team for a couple of companies, she teaches classes, writes articles, and sells her own creations from time to time online.


She started her introduction by saying "I'm a stay at home mom who also....." and then went on to describe what she does professionally.

Some people don't define a SAHP as a person who does not have a job. My DH is not confused about whether or not he has a job.

I think of myself as a SAHM, I suppose because the vast majority of my days are spent being just that.

I don't get the confusion that many have over this issue.

If you were a ptwohm, then why "for the sake of debate" did you consider yourself
