You Speak Out

Working Mothers - A Different Perspective

In one of the summer Scrap Girls Newsletters, a writer shared about working moms from the perspective of a stay-at-home mom (SAHM). I applaud her and all SAHM who've sacrificed to be able to be home with their children. They may not get paid monetarily, but they are investing in something that will have a great payout in the future.

I have a different perspective: I am neither a SAHM nor a Work-Outside-the-Home Mom. I am a WAHM - a Work-At-Home Mom. I work full-time for a non-profit organization, and I am blessed to be able to do that work from home.

I started working from home when my eldest daughter was in third grade. She is now a sophomore in high school. My son was in kindergarten, and while working full-time, I also homeschooled him, as well as my daughter for three years. This was a difficult task, but very fulfilling. My goal was to help develop my children's character, to teach them academically, of course, but to also help them learn who they are as people. It was the best time of my life, even though I was working from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. everyday – fitting in my work schedule around the time I spent time with my kids.

Last year, I was doubly thankful to be able to work at home when I found out we were expecting another baby! Myka Eden was born in December 2010, and I am so blessed to be able to be home with her, seeing all her firsts. I missed a lot of that with my older children as I worked outside the home when they were babies.

Working at home is hard. Especially when you work for someone else, and you have to complete a minimum amount of hours each day. Explaining to my family that they need to leave me alone so I can get my work done is sometimes frustrating to all of us. But not one of us would change anything. It is a blessing to be able to bring home a paycheck to help support our family and to be there for my kids for anything they need.

Being a WAHM mom includes all the other mom duties: Laundry, dishes, cooking, baking, cleaning, etc. And while my day starts way before the sun makes its appearance and ends long after it has set, I wouldn't change anything about it. I have the best of both worlds!

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to hello@scrapgirls.com. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!

Games

October Message Board Game: Product Picks

Join us for a new game in October, where we encourage you to stroll through the aisles of the boutique and do a little window shopping!

Each Monday through Saturday in October, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post the name of one or two product designers in the Product Picks game thread. You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then head over to the Product Picks game thread and share the product name, Boutique link, and a brief explanation of why you chose that product.

At the end of the month, members who haves posted links to 42 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 Gift Certificates. Members who have posted links to 16-41 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 Gift Certificates. And members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
