Am I a SAHM?

I consider myself a SAHM, but when my youngest turned 6 months old I went back to waiting tables Friday nights at the restaurant I used to manage. It's fun because I know all of the regulars, and I make BANK. I'm gone a total of 2.5 hours of my son's waking hours, and my older kids are at their dad's on Friday nights. Can I still consider myself a SAHM, even though I have a job one night a week?

  • I would consider you to be. That amount of time is not enough to say that you are a mom with a career. I personally hate the term sahm vs. working mom...every mother is a working mom.

    I take a few hours outside the home each week to destress and have some me time. You do too, but when you leave, you bring $$ INTO the home. I just spend it! :)

  • Yes I'd say your a SAHM...that is your main job. What you do on one night a week, is for you, it's like "me" time....and you get some extra cash!
