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.

I know I'll get heat for this, but you're right. This was my idea of a working mom. Not to say that they don't love their kids and take care of them when they're with them, but the idea of wanting to work when you have kids

I think for all intensive purposes you're a SAHM -- but really what do I know? I know that even if I stayed home I wouldn't be 'attending to the house" and that half the time when Liza and I are here together she's doing her thing and I'm doing mine ...;-)

I would say he's a SAHD by day and a full time worker by night. You've got quite a man there! : )

They can be out of work for months..years even.... instant Stay at home ness
