If you choose to be a
work at home mom the type of work you do will naturally
impact your experience.
I began by doing the same
kind of work I’d done in the corporate world – only at
home as an independent contractor. The pay was good and
I could pick my own hours. But those hours had to be
when my husband was home (to watch the kids), and I had
to go into my office (a spare bedroom) and shut the
door. It just didn’t feel right..

A recent AP article
focused on the effect of rising gas prices on the habits
of stay-at-home moms. They’re staying home more than
ever, the article said, because of the transportation
costs of going anywhere.
One of the perks of
being a work at home mom in my industry (social
marketing) is the virtual travel benefits. It’s not
uncommon for me to talk with people in multiple states
and send e-mails around the world in any given day. And
I don’t have to pay for gas :-).
