When Being a WAHM Really Loses Its Cool Points

in Relationships & Family

wahm cool points

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!
