WAH vs lucrative hobby

At what point (if any) does one make the distinction between WAH and having a hobby that happens to bring in a little bit of cash? I can't imagine paying any real bills by making hair bows.

I can agree to that.

Also, some of the parents I see WAH do so to avoid a nasty commute, which helps family life considerably. It also allows them to be flexible about the work they take on- heavier in the fall and winter-early spring and lighter in the summer.

Probably at the point that you make a profit.

And writing. Don't forget writing. Unless you're writing fiction, you still have to leave the house to interview people, etc., but you can do a large chunk of it at home.

The people I know who do that pampered chef/handbag party

Yes, that would be the only draw for me personally to WAH - earning a paycheck without having to basically hand that paycheck over for childcare. Of course, I can't get any work done with the boy around, so WAH holds little practical appeal to me.

Its a hobby that generates some pocket money income. I know some people who make extra income with their various hobbies. They know they aren't getting rich, but they enjoy doing these types of things and it is a creative outlet.
