The Work-at-Home Mom Blog

A site for moms who work and parent simultaneously

Work-at-home moms occupy two worlds at the same time: the professional world and the stay-at-home mom world. Oftentimes, they feel like they don’t belong to either realm, which can be a lonely and alienating experience. This space is meant to be a virtual gathering place and community for all the moms who work at home, whether part time or full time, freelance or remote. Here you’ll find support for the unique challenges being a WAHM presents, a place to celebrate the benefits, tips and techniques for juggling your work life and your home life, and advice for moms thinking of making the transition to a work-at-home situation. Welcome!

My life has been feeling very chaotic lately…

Like, so chaotic.

We’re in the middle of a move (so boxes everywhere…check out my latest YouTube video for proof!). My mother is living with us (well, we’re living with her, as she bought our house). I expanded my role at the...

I’ve just finished reading Elizabeth Willard Thames’s Meet the Frugalwoods: Achieving Financial Independence through Simple Living for the second time (affiliate link). Whoever thought that personal finance books were dry and impersonal has not read this book, which is...

When I was in graduate school, I had a good friend who religiously took Sundays off from schoolwork—not primarily for religious purposes, however; she simply carved out one day a week for herself, to put away her school books and assignments and nurture her soul. She w...

Last night, my husband asked me if “it” was worth it, and by “it” he meant my job. He claimed that I work all the time, that I was missing out on my children’s young lives: “They’ll only be this age once. Won’t you be sad that you worked all the time and missed these m...

Today starts a series on the importance of dressing for success as a remote worker. Along with posts dedicated to the topic, The Work-at-Home Mom Blog will be launching a community challenge on social media called the #getdressedinitiative. Every day, we encourage you...

As any remote worker or entrepreneur knows, working from home can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, your schedule might be more flexible, with opportunities to squeeze in chores or childcare responsibilities in between work commitments. On the other hand...

Don’t miss out on bigger opportunities because you’re afraid to invest in the long term.

I used to be a contract copy editor, which meant that I juggled multiple projects from various clients simultaneously. At the same time, I was in graduate school, pursuing a PhD in...

Like many of you, I am a go-getter. I take on tasks at work with gusto, especially editing and writing projects, which I particularly enjoy. Given my enthusiasm for large projects, I never would have imagined that I had a problem with the dreaded P word… proc...

One of the most common phrases I hear from well-intentioned working moms trying to empower other working moms is “You can have it all.” While this phrase is supposed to be encouraging, making women feel like they can be great moms, wives, friends, employees, etc., all...

My three-year-old started part-time preschool this year, and the constancy of illnesses has been far worse than I could have ever imagined. She’s probably had three colds and one fever-inducing respiratory virus in the past seven weeks. The enterovirus and one of the c...
