I get to drink herbal teas that I crafted myself from my favorite coffee mug.
I get to stop work and get some much needed cuddles from my kids .
I can breastfeed Little a, while potty training Big A, while submitting articles for publication, all at the same time!
I don’t ever have to get out of my pajamas, if I don’t want to (but I usually do).
I can eat a brownie for lunch without being judged by my co-workers.
I can go to a friend’s yard and pick weeds all day long and call it “work”.
I can watch documentaries (or Charmed) all day while working without getting reprimanded.
I get to write, work with herbs, and spend time with my family – 3 of my favorite things to do.
I don’t have to commute and get stuck in traffic on a regular basis.
I can raise my children while also maintaining a career.
I can share what knowledge I have in order to help others, while at the same time, also gaining new knowledge from the people I interact with.
There are many downsides to working from home while raising children, but the positives totally outweigh the negatives for me. I love what I do, I love that I get to actively be involved in my children’s lives, and I also love the flexibility that being a WAHM provides for me.
