What is a stay at home mom for you? If it includes someone who does the laundry, takes care of the kids prepares the food and keeps the house in order, then you are definitely on the right track. However, this kind of definition of a stay at home mom is a little old school, don’t you think?
I am a young mom and I refuse to think that household work is all that I can do. Despite giving up my dream of climbing the corporate ladder, I believe there are a lot of things that I can do. Before my child was born, I never thought I would even consider being a stay at home mom. But much like everyone says, having a child changes you in more ways than one. I had a complete change of heart that my career plans totally took the back seat.
If you think stay at home moms are defined by those women who grow old doing household chores, then you better think again. The modern world has brought about the reinvention of the stay at home mom. Goodbye casseroles and pearls, because the stay at home moms of today have got more to offer beyond that.
There are about a handful of businesses all over the world and don’t be surprised if more than half of them is controlled by women. Stay at home moms have now become mom entrepreneurs. Because running one’s own business gives women a sense of security with a lot of flexibility, then there are a lot of them who would grab the chance to start their own business. These mompreneurs have become an inspiration to all other moms who want to earn their own money while witnessing their kids growing up right before their eyes.
It used to be so difficult for women to talk about the changes that comes with motherhood. Apart from the obvious lifestyle changes that most people know about, there are small changes in a woman’s life that happens when she becomes a mother. From gaining weight to lacking sleep, all these changes contribute to how effective she becomes as a mom. Luckily, stay at home moms can write about it at the comforts of their home. More importantly, blogger moms can get paid to blog. Isn’t is simply amazing?
It used to be just stay at home mom and not it has been transformed into WAHM or work at home mom. Is it possible for women to be the best moms in the world and still continue with their careers? It certainly is. There are a lot of industries that have opened up for moms who would like to be at home and still work. What is great about these opportunities for WAHMs is that they come in a variety of options that perfectly understands the complicated schedule that the mother runs every day. It can be quite crazy to juggle several roles but there is no other person who can do it in the world, but moms.
I have a lot of friends who had the same experiences. I think even those who are going up the career ladder to become the future CEO of the company has got wish on their mind – to be there for their kid every step of the way and fulfil their career dreams at the same time. It is unbelievable? It is to those who don’t have kids yet. The thought of staying at home and looking at your child the whole day may seem like a totally ridiculous idea, but the sweet rewards await you.
