Cereal Mom By Sharon Davis

I recently heard a woman say that being called a "work at home mom" was professionally demeaning. Being one myself, my initial reaction was to agree with her. "Thatís right, Iím a professional, Iím not just a bored housewife dabbling with a hobby here," I said to myself.

Upon reflection however, I came to realize that I disagree. Deeply.

Working out of your home while caring for children makes for some unique (and comical) situations. If you canít have a sense of humor about these things, then maybe a field job is more your style.

But letís face it, just how professional can you be when much of your work is done with a toddler on your lap? And that is, after all, one ofrepparttar great benefits of working at home; you can consult with clients wearing bunny slippers if you like. Whoís to know? Sometimes we just need to keep things in perspective. I know thatrepparttar 117778 work that I do is top quality, and I donít sweat what others think of my work environment.

But I do wonder how that woman deals with some of those little challenges that comewith being a work-at-home parent.

For example, maybe she feels that going out ofrepparttar 117779 house with soggy Cheerios stuck to her behind would be professionally demeaning. She must have found a way to avoid this. I should call her...

Not being able to locate a pen because theyíre all in use fishing Barbie clothes out ofrepparttar 117780 toilet. This might be seen as unprofessional.
