  • I'm in between but call myself a stay a home mom. I am home 5 days a week while my husband works and I waitress the other 2 nights when he is off. Often time than not though a coworker asks to work 1 or both of my shifts and I'll have those days off too.

    I also consider myself a stay at home mom because I do all the housework and cooking and helping with homework such as a stay at home mom does. I just get a break sometimes 2 nights a week. I also babysit 2 of the days I am home.

    Even if my husband earned 6 figures, I would still work 1 or 2 nights a week. I'm too afraid of going back into poverty than to rely on only 1 income.

  • As the question after 5... or even later, and you'll probably get more answers from moms who work outside the home.

  • I'm actually 4 hours shy of being considered full time. I work 36 hours a week, 4 days a week. I nanny at someone's home, with my little one in tow. Sometimes I feel like a sahm, I'm just not staying at my home, lol.

  • Nope, no SAHM here. I did it when my boys were little until I left my ex. After I moved a couple of years ago, I cut back to part-time and telecommuted, so it was somewhat like being a SAHM, since I worked at home and could (for teh most part) set my own hours.

    Now, though, I work just over 40 hours a week, then another 30+ at home with all the house and family work.
