Just curious...would you call a full time college student whos also a mom a working mom or stay at home mom?

I am a full time college student and was just wondering which classification I would fall into. On one hand I am working my butt off and it causes me to spend time away from my son,but not at a job or for money. On the other hand, I stay home with my son and dont have a job, but I do have to spend a significant time away from him while at class or the library studying. So which group would I fall into? Or have I made a new group: the College Mom group?

  • I believe that every mom is a working mom, especially when your tackling college at the same time. That is how I see myself as well ;)

  • You do not have a job and therefore you are not a a working mom.

  • SAHM because you aren't contributing financially (although you are in many other ways). But this is still just a loose definition because you aren't a sahm if you spend alot of your day outside of your home in class and studying. You might send your kids to daycare just like a working mom would. I like the sound of college mommy. :)

  • All moms work. You are a mom and a college student. Why do you need to label yourself anyway?

  • I'd say working mom. College is work, but instead of you getting paid, you have to pay them.
