I do consider myself a SAHM, yes, I am a Stay-at-home-mom. Why? Because I don’t work for a company and I don’t have to leave the house for more than 8 hours just to work for somebody else. Though I work for myself and I have a business, I still consider myself as a SAHM.
When I was single, which is a very short period of time, I only need to think for myself and not for somebody else. I am still single now but I already have my JB (my son) to take care of. I have tried to work for a company before, in the company’s accounting department and it was a little bit easy. Because I just need to be there before 8 am and leave the office after 5 pm. I have to wake up everyday just to think of that schedule and I kept all my earnings for myself only. But when I got pregnant and gave birth to my little angel, I needed to earn more for the both of us. My salary back then was so small because I need to pay for the rent, for the bills, and for my meals. It is not enough to feed a family of 2.
Now that I have my own business and a sideline (blogging income), I am happy to say that it is more than enough for the two of us. Now, the things that I have to do are : I need to wake up early for my business especially if my warehouse woman is not around yet, then check on my son and prepare his things for school, then get back in my office (located just a few steps from my room, LOL) to check the inventory and sales for the past day, after my son’s school time, we play together and read together, I see to it that we have a quality time together.
