According to a new study, moms who work at least part-time are happier and healthier than SAHMs.

The study actually does make a lot of sense to me. I've been full time working mom, part time working mom, and full time stay at home mom. I have to honestly admit I was much happier and motivated when I worked at least part time outside of my home. I was definitely stressed out as far as time management but was a little happier because I had a place to be Nancy instead of Mom.

I hated the corporate stuff too! Strange how I forget about that part. Oh, I was frustrated and stressed over things I had zero control over. I definitely don't miss that.

I'm happier as a SAHM than I was as a working mom, but my overall health was probably better when I was working part-time.

I feel happier and a lot less stressed out then having a full time job. I was not a "Big Shot" at
