“I’ve been working from home fulltime for almost a year now. Prior to giving birth to our youngest child last year, I was already working from home part-time, reporting to the office only twice a week.
I count myself truly blessed to have the current set-up I have now — balancing freelance writing/editing jobs, and PR and social media-related tasks (all from the comfort of our small but cozy apartment) while being a hands-on, household helper-less mom to our three kids, two of whom I homeschool. I know many moms would love to be able to stay/work at home while dedicating most of their time to their children, but can’t do so for one reason or another. I know they’d probably trade places with me if they could.”
Indeed, being a homeschooling WAHM without a helper/yaya (something that may be considered “strange” in our country!) has its own set of challenges. Read about how I “manage” things (or try to, ha, ha!), and get tips on “how to make a living while making a home” on Make It Blissful. Then come back here, and let’s talk about what “It Takes a Village” means for you! 🙂
