A guest post by Maggie Singleton
Work-at-home mom (WAHM) has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? You can be a mom AND continue to make money for the family. You've got the laundry and the laptop at your fingertips; the best of both worlds; a touch of green from both pastures.

A lot of moms ask me how I like it–half of them wishing for a day off to hang out with their kids; the other half of them wishing for a day off from their kids. I like to think that the grasses are not greener on either side of the fence; they are simply (wait for it…) different shades of green.
At one moment, I may be spending time with my kids (usually with my cattle prod in hand—herding them from one activity to the next). A moment later, I am fielding a call from someone who is penning his first novel and needs an editor yesterday. I suppose it is all part of my exhilarating, yet not-so-steamy love affair between mothering, part time work, and housekeeping (which always feels like the third wheel).
