  1. I stay at home 6 days a week, but on one of my husband’s days off, I work as a pediatric nurse. It gives me a change of routine for the day, allows me to give to people outside our family, provides income for my family, and gives my husband and children quality alone time together. I miss my kids while I am working, but it’s a great system for us.

  2. I am a family working mom. I take care of the kids, the house, the dog, and everything that is involved with the day to day! Of course money is ALWAYS an issue, but I have yet to find anything great for stay at home moms. I love my family, though!!!

  3. Interesting, i am gonna show my wife this one! I be she’ll love this.

  4. Right now I’m a career mom.. After 2 years of being a home mom… So at this stage of our lives the career mom works for us.

  5. I am a stay at home Mom who homeschool’s one of our children,while another attends public school.Both are autistic and it works better for me to be available to help the school with the youngest, when needed and to teach our oldest myself.

  6. I’m a full time working outside the home Mom. I’m a single parent so it’s necessary for me to work, but I am fortunate to work for a company that allows flex time since I work 60 miles from where I live. They allow me to start extra early in the morning and leave earlier in the afternoon. This allows me to be home in the afternooon and evening with my son helping him with homework and making dinner and enjoying his sporting events. It works for us so we can spend more time together. :)

  7. Laura Zimmer says:

    I am a single mother who works from home and homeschools two children, ages 6 and 13. I give private piano lessons 2 afternoons/evenings a week,which allows me to be available to work with the kids on school during the day. It also allows me to still be home and supervise the kids while I work, so no need for a babysitter.

  8. Dian Watson says:

    I work 2 part time jobs, but they still don’t equate to a full time job. Mondays thru Fridays I am a stay at home mom doing the typical mom stuff like packing lunches, household chores (alot), prepping dinner etc. Then, Friday to Sunday I piggyback 2 of my jobs 4 hours each at 2 Petsmart locations as a Retail Rep for Science Diet. Then immediately after that I work an additional 6 hours at the grocery store demonstrating food samples to customers. I am deadbeat tired by Sunday because bare in mind I do not get a lunch break for any of the locations due to 4 hour schedule per job, which is still an 8-10 hour shift for me. This works out perfect for my family especially because I have access to coupons for groceries and petfood. So, in a nutshell, I still feel very blessed.

  9. Tiffany Winner says:

    i’m a family mom and we homeschool so that’s a full time job for me

  10. I work from home, it works for us because it leaves me more flexible to be home with the kids if they are sick or have a day off from school and I bring in a little extra income.

  11. I’m not a mom but I am a nanny who does a lot of mom duties.

  12. Patricia Crowley says:

    I work full-time outside of the home mostly (I get one work at home day per week!) It works for us because all of the children are school aged and my mom is there to get them on and off the bus!

  13. Cea Taylor says:

    I have the best job in the world. Being a mom!! I’m a stay at home mom who recently left the workforce to raise my two year old. It’s MY job to teach her the joys of life and the pathways of the world. So quite simply my only job to my little girl is to be patient, understanding, loving and supportive of her. Me being a stay at home mom works for our family because my fiance works pretty hard to provide for us for the time being. We have our basic needs taken care and our only future worries is the holidays. Through awesome blogs like this, we are able to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE. Thank you for that by the way. But at the end of the day we are thankful and grateful to have one another through any trials and struggles. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to enter your giveaway!! :)

  14. Silvia Martinez-Roberts says:

    I was a stay at home mom for the about 16 years, went to work part time, and now I nanny for a family 4 days a week. My oldest is away at college, and my youngest is a junior in high school, so I still want to be around and have flexible hours so I don’t miss any of his events such as basketball games, homecoming, prom, etc. I do love working, and will probably go back to work full time once he goes off to college. My main priority with my kids was to give them all the tools they needed in order to be independent productive adults. I hope I’ve done my job :D

  15. ashley wood says:

    I work full time in Non Profit which is very flexible with my boys. On their days off I get to bring them with me which works great for being a single parent.

  16. I am a mom on disability who works part time in an effort to meet my son’s needs.

    Thank you.

  17. until recently I worked 5-10 hrs a week for my inlaws who live ~5 miles from us and had their office at their house. It was great, because they didn’t have to bother with office work, the kids got to see grandparents, I earned little income, and could come/go as I needed around my families schedule.
