How many of you work at home and do you enjoy it?

I'm currently applying to work at home with alpine access and I'm just worried since I'm a stay at home mom of a 3 year old... How many of you'll work at home with kids? And, how has your experience been?

  • I work from home. I just do all of my work when the kids go to bed at night so I can accomplish more.

  • I work from home and I love it!!! I have a 3 1/2 year old and a 2 year old. I work from home with a Team of Moms so it's okay to have my Little Ones around. I have the best of both worlds!

    Best Wishes to you!

  • Depends on the child! My daughter is a terror and it is hard doing the most simple things around the house. Other days she is so independent that I can get everything needed done! But, I think people like Alpine want a quiet environment!

  • Thanks!!!! Alpine does want a quite environment, my husband works for them. But I know a few moms who work for them with their kids at home also.

  • I don't think I could get anything done with my kids home, I work from home but until they are school age I have to send them to a sitter. The company I work for has high production standards and I can't meet those with the kids here (I tried)

  • I have been working from home since January 2008 with a great company and I LOVE it. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

  • independently yes, but really don't like it

  • I didn't start working from home until my daughter was 12. It has been great to have the flexibility to work around her
