I have two part time jobs , one of them I do from work as a Local Childcare Coordinator for an au pair agency. I work from my home office when the kids are in school and at night after they go to bed. When I visit new families I do it mainly at night or on weekends, and for au pair meetings/training, I do it on weekends as well. I also work for a Non-Profit organization and go to the office twice a week (while the kids are in school). For my coordinator job, I dress up a little when I go and visit families and give training, or for the au pair meetings; otherwise I can work in my pajamas in my office at odd hours. For the other job I wear business casual and turn in my working hours every two weeks.
I know most of the Moms in here do the whole 40 hours completely outside the home, thus considered "Working Moms". Can you tell me if I would be considered a working Mom or a Stay-At-Home Mom? My husband drops the kids at school and I pick them up everyday. I volunteer at their school twice a month and the kids really don't really feel that I work, since most of the time they see me here. It's hard sometimes when I get business calls and we are in the middle of doing things, but I mainly offer office hours at night, so I'm available for the children.
Thank you, I just want to make sure I'm in the right circle.
