When I catch my son slowly smushing the cat’s head into the carpet… for the 5th time that day.
When the effect of timeout, spanking, taking toys away, etc. takes a periodic hiatus.
When the screaming doesn’t start until I get on the phone with a client. Then stops immediately afterward.
When going to a networking event becomes an escape!
When I work four hours AFTER the kiddo nods off for the night.
When balance seems impossible.
I’m considering coining a new acronym: T2WAKAHM
Try to Work Around the Kid(s) at Home Mom
What new acronyms really describe your WAHM experience or that of someone you know? I know that it cannot be the way that it is in Family Circle or Redbook. No way!
