Updated on February 24, 2012

Will You Be Applying?

Many people do not fully understand the many "hats" a stay at home mom wears in her everyday life.

After reading this job description, are you still interested in applying? If so, then congratulations you are hired!

      The thing about being a stay at home mom is it has a shelf life. It's not a position that is available forever. When it's over, it's over. I did it for 13 years and thank God I didn't waste the opportunity. No, I will never be the publisher of the Atlanta Journal. But I did eventually have a career in newspapers and it was an acceptable consolation prize for the children growing up. Enjoy every wonderful/frustrating moment. They go by fast - really.

      Girl... I resigned from my career as an engineer of 20 years to be a stay at home mom a couple of months ago. Everything you say is accurate. It never ends. I have had many stressful jobs but none as stressful as this. I am rethinking my decision and have started applying for jobs. I know that sounds terrible but I think everyone was happier with our schedule and home when I was working. Because I was happier. I am just not cut out to stay at home with 4 kids. Ahhhhh..

      Kathleen you are absolutely right. It does go by too fast. I can't even believe it has been over 3 years since I made the decision to stay home - hands down best decision of my life! Thanks for reading and posting your thoughts!

      angela p there is no shame in you going back to work. I applaud you for realizing what makes you happy. And the fact that you can balance a full time job while raising a family of four kids...wow! When I was working, I had a hard time balancing out family and work so I definitely admire you for being able to do that. Thanks for taking the time to read and for the follow!

      Angela P: Only you know what is best for your family. There is more than one way to do this right.

      Also, any stay at home mom should know the facts of life: my daughter's husband left her with two toddlers and at their divorce hearing the judge admonished my daughter for being foolish enough to put herself in the position of having no career to support herself. Being a stay at home mom had no legal protection whatsoever. She now works fulltime and shares custody with her ex even though he walked out on her. Beware.

      Kathleen - What an awful thing for that judge to say! We both know being a stay at home mom is a full time job in itself. But it would be a good idea for every stay at home mom to think about a plan B to fall back on just in case an unfortunate situation happens like that. Thanks for bringing that to our attention!

      I found the testimonial very interesting I have been a stay at home mom now for about 8 years and what was shared is so true. There are times when you do get bored, feel lonley, and need to find things to refresh you as a person. It is not easy and it takes a lot of work. This article is a great depiction of all the joys, and challenges of being a stay at home mom.

      I couldn't agree with you more. The first time I played that video I kept nodding my head agreeing with everything she said. You do feel that way sometimes and that's when you know you need a little break or a night out to get you back on track. Thanks so much for reading and for your great comment!

      I was a SAHM for 12 years then I got my promotion to WAHM just last year!

      I was a SAHM by accident. I planned on working outside the home but when I looked into how much child care was, my husband and I thought it would actually save us money by me staying home instead. I loved being a SAHM! I believe it is the best job in the world! I am fortunate.

      12 years went by and a few part time jobs. I am now starting to eeek a living from my blog and article writing. My biggest paychecks are still in hugs and kisses from my son, 13, and daughter, 11 but those don't pay the car bill, lol.

      Great hub! Hilarious but so true! I was a sahm then a working mom and I'm now a wahm. It's hard but I enjoy it and I love that I actually get to see my kids grow up and not just hear and see snippets of it. It would be great though if there were a salary for being a sahm! But then I guess it wouldn't be the same! No one knows sacrifice like a mother does.

      Dear Alissa,

      Enjoyed reading your hub, and listening to the video as I read some of the comments.

      Can relate to the problem of how much child care costs. I was a SAHM because I wanted to give my daughter the best, and she wasn't getting the best when she was in child care when I worked. Things improved when she was in preschool and Kindergarten, but my husband and I have always wanted to home-school her. We began doing so loosely when she was younger, but are doing it more deliberately now. Since her birthday misses the DOE cutoff of August 31st, I actively home-schooled her from 5-6 years and she started reading during that time. :0)

      Now, I must increase my efforts to earn money at home around home-schooling her,...and am enjoying it thoroughly. Have an M.Ed. in elementary education and I feel that I am using it by home-schooling my daughter...even more so than if I were teaching in a classroom. I am also lucky that the things I enjoy are things I can share with her...things we can do together...so I am never bored...no time to be bored! :0)...but then again I have but 1 child, and that is as much as I can handle. I extend my admiration to those who can juggle life as a SAHM with more than 1 child.

      Great article. I took a break from my job to take care of my baby for 2 years. During these 2 years, I too felt that engineering work was much easier than taking care of a small baby. I do enjoy spending time with little one and at the same time I look forward to go back to work once she starts kindergarten.

You sound like a great mom and I wish you the best of luck with homeschooling your daughter. Thanks so much for reading and sharing your story!

      I thought I knew what a SAHM did as my Mom was one. I started out working outside the home when DH and I got married. We then became a foster home, then a legal risk foster home. We adopted our oldest son and had another foster child in our home and still I worked outside the home. Then we had two little girls placed with us and I tried to work but quickly came to realize my entire paycheck was going to child care. So I them became a SAHM.

      We had at that point 4 children under the age of 3 (all 7 months apart from oldest to youngest). I had to put on my Refere hat and never took it off until the children went to bed.

      When the two girls left our home I was able to take off that hat but then I had to put on my educator hat and theach the boys how to do things like talk, color, FS to crawl as he wanted to walk at 6 months.

      Then we had a teenage girl placed with us and I had to add a counselor hat and a medical hat in the mix. I had to keep track of all her medication, along with the boys medication, all doctors appointments and counseling appointments.

      I also had to put on a defensive suite to ward off all the physical blows aimed my direction.

      So Your Home, Inc. has really gotten their money's worth out of me. I've been worked so hard that I am now broken in body but not in spirit or mind.

      I still use the refere and counselor hats as well as the secretary hat for appointments. DH handles the rest as he is currently a SAHD.

      Thanks so much for this job description. It really boosted my confidence. I love it. I am a stay at home mom for about 23 yrs and am going back into the work force. They are going to love my resume. There's a bit of humor. But no regrets. What job can you get to see the results and appreciate where the word no means yes in the end. Yes I have great kids and loving husband.

      Ah yes I had some trouble adjusting that first year myself! Going from working full time to being at home was quite a change for me. Thankfully I settled in just fine...of course I still have those days where I want to pull my hair out! :) Thanks Joesy Shmoesy for your visit and for the votes!

      This hub is so great! I read it as a comedy because I can picture it. I would love for my husband to read it as a serious educational method. I swear he thinks I sleep in and watch tv all day. He watches more tv in one day after work than I watch all day in a week.
