working mom's sacrifice

17 January 2011

Some mothers choose to work not just to prove their worth in this world. They work for their family's future, particularly that of their childrens future.

I'm a stay-at-home mom. I do work at home so I'm also a work-at-home mom some days. But the money I earn is nothing compared with that of my friends who works in big companies. I put on hold my wants, needs and dreams so I can take care of my son.

I did make a lot of sacrifice. But just like me and other stay-at-home moms, working moms also made a lot of sacrifice. They missed most of their kids' firsts -first step, first word, first smile. And the worry of leaving their kids with people who are not even related to them. That's the sacrifice that working moms have to endure.

And stay-at-home moms, like me, also have sacrifices... that I will write in length on another article.

I'm a first time SAHM and a WAHM as well. I've been working in the corporate world since I graduated and it was just now that I'm pregnant with my second child that I decided to quit my job and true enough your right. Budget wise is kinda hard coz of limited earnings but staying at home and seeing your child grow up is worth the money in the world. Being a SAHM is more fulfilling for a mom. :)

This is very true! Mommies have to give up a lot even their own dreams for the sake of their children. I had to give up traditional work because I can't find a trusted nanny to take care of my children. Fortunately, I was able to find my niche in the internet world. I work online now and somehow help hubby with the finances at home.
