New WAHM

Hello,

My name is Kathy and I'm a new mom and a new work at home mom. I'm currently teaching part time at an online charter school. I am a certified teacher in PA and was lucky to land this job when my baby was 4 weeks old. She's 11 weeks now and cute as ever! Anyhoo, working from home with a little one is challenging from me but I was only a secretary before (I have a masters in teaching) and took a big pay cut to stay home with baby. It's worth it though. I have a career (more than i did before) and really like what I'm doing. The worst part about WAHM is not having anyone to complain to about work! I had to call my DH today and b1tch because of work related issues. That is what I miss the most. Working at home has been the best decision I made and I feel lucky that I can do it (plus it makes that $25,000 masters degree worth it somehow!)

Welcome Kathy and congratulations on your new little girl!

I do sometimes miss the personal contact from working outside the home, but I make up for most of it with my online networking. I have met some of the greatest people on my computer! :)

When I need to actually interact with a real live person (or should I specify *adult*) during the day, I turn to playgroups. My kids need the interaction too.
