The Work-At-Home Parent
By Christine McLaughlin
Moms who work at home know that the term "working at home with kids" is redundant. There's your full-time job as mom -- at home. And then there's the other job where you earn a paycheck -- also done at home. You probably get the feeling you are working all the time. Friends wonder how you do it. You wonder that same thing yourself sometimes!
So how does an already busy mom pull off the dual responsibilities? Not easily. However, that's not to say it's not possible, or not rewarding. You may be surprised to know that probably the easiest time to work from home is when you have your first newborn. Sure, you're absolutely exhausted, but chances are your baby spends a lot of time sleeping -- even if not in heavenly eight-hour chunks each night. (Don't worry, that will come.) Try to get yourself on some semblance of a schedule. Sit down at the computer for a few hours after your child's first morning feeding.
