Let us first unlock the meaning of the term:
WAHM- Work At Home Mum.
The urge to work from home has been constantly tugging at my heart since I have given birth to my little one. He is now 20 months old and I have yet to decide if I would like to work from home.
I have apprehensions, to begin with, if I am to quit my current job. I have been teaching for the past 15 years. Teaching is my passion and just imagining leaving the classroom is already causing me anxiety. On the other hand, I have also been pondering for a while now how it’s going to be like working outside the school; though only when I had my baby did I start wanting to work in the comfort of my home while spending time with my son.
The place I work at is just right inside the subdivision I stay in. I can actually go home on breaks or when I’m off classes but due to the stressful work demands of the job, I sometimes cannot go home to check on my little one who would be under the care of his sitter.
As of writing, My son’s been terribly ill and I have not been to work for 3 consecutive days, so the desire to just be a WAHM is becoming more and more persistent, but I know there are a lot of things to consider.
Any tips, encouragement or word of advice from working moms and WAHMs alike?
