I am a work from home mom now. I was a working mom for the first year and a half with my first, then became a stay at home mom with my second who has extensive special needs. Once I became a single mom, the best thign was to be a work from home mom, so I could still have teh flexibiilty that I needed to meet my kids' special needs (as well as their regular needs) and still bring in some income. Now that htey are both in school, I have toyed with the idea of working outside te home part time, as it would be nice to have colleagues again and more social interaction. But I do love being home with the kids, and being easily available when I am needed for school issues or medical issues.
I work part time during the week and thats fine for me and my family!
Quoting splatz:I'm a stay at home mom. I miss working though. I just feel sort of worthless as a SAHM.

I've done both. I worked until my first was 4.5 yrs (2007). In Sept '07 I became a SAHM and continued to be one until Sept '09 when I went back to school full time. At that time I had 2 kiddos. I graduated in Nov '10, and went to work until Mar '11. I quit that job and became a SAHM again, which I still am and will continue to be until all of my kiddos are in school.
