I work from home, so am I considered a SAHM or a working mom?

Hello, I work for a company from the comfort of my own home, I don't have a set schedule but am required to complete a certain number of hours each week, therefore I have arranged my schedule M-F 8:30 am to 2:30 pm, My 2.8 year old boy goes to a Preschool center during those hours, (he just started attending, previously I worked evenings so he spent all day with me then my husband took over while I worked). When people ask me if I'm a stay at home mom I usually reply with a "YES", and when they ask if I'm a working mom I also reply with a "YES". I somehow feel conflicted with being able to place myself in either of these categories, so I would like some feedback from other moms about it.

So I guess the question is, am I closer to being a SAHM or a working mom? considering the fact that my child stayed home all day with me from birth to 2.8 yrs old, attends Preschool for 6 hrs. which is considered a little more than a half day (4hrs) and a little less than a full day (8-10hrs) and I pretty much never leave the house except to take him to the park or run errands.
