  • I do work from home and I dress with what happens to be the first thing I grab. I dont see customers at my house, so I don't get dressed up. If I need to go out for the job, I do.

  • It depends on if the people actually see me or not. Some times I answer the phone naked.

  • I work from home and work in my pjs. I can only get a shower when my DD is napping, so the day's I'm actually working, I'm too busy getting work done during her nap instead of a shower.

  • i work from home, i dont see client at my house so i wear my P.J.s most of the time...i buy cute ones so they arent! but when i go out in to the public..i get dressed. in the summer time i wear shorts and a t-shirt. we have a swimming pool so i sit on the porch and watch the kids play while working on my lap top. its a lot of work and it seems im always on the computer but i do get to enjoy my children while they play and o their activities...that i probably would not other wise. if your not a work from home mom there are alot of wonderful ladies here on cafemom that will help you get that way....i havent heard anyone complain about their stay at home type job...i enjoy mine. good luck

  • I work from home and I dress like a mom which usually means jeans. I don't dress up, but I'm not in my pj's either.

  • If I see customers that day, then I will dress the part. Other than that, just depends on what is going on that day.  I am still in PJ's right now until I have to get dressed to go out later.
