I read the article this morning, and thought of this board, and others like it.
So when do you work and how many hours do you work per week? Do the kids know not to disturb you when you work, or how do you manage that?
That "mompreneursonline" thing is some kind of MLM, I think, and you get the feeling that they paid for the article.
If you are working from home, you are not a SAHM, right off the bat. Besides, most women, who have actual, real experience with WAH, know that you need childcare of some kind to do any kind of serious work from home. Some will try to make it count as quality time, by having a sitter in the house minding the kid while mom works. IMHO, a bad idea in most cases. Just own the fact that you can't spend every waking moment with preshus and get over it. Preshus will.
Yes, the acronyms

Actually, you did.

Work status does not define if you are mom. I am a sahm who works at home full-time. I am still a sahm. I do all for my kids and for my job. (I do graphic design.) To me, that makes me the stay-at-home mom who happens to work full-time too. If I used childcare while I worked, then I am not a sahm, I would be working, not mothering. Neither makes me a better mother but you can definitely do work and be mom if you are their sole provider at that given moment.
ack, you are right! I did not know I said that. Let me just say that I apologize for confusion. What I meant to say is not what that says. My prior post says it best, I hope, when I clarified.
