Top 10 Things People Say When They Hear I Work from Home

Top 10 Things People Say: Top 10 lists cover just about anything you can imagine. I thought a work at home Top 10 this week would be a fun change of pace from the daily grind!

Being a work at home mom is a unique challenge unlike any other job. A challenge that well-meaning people just don’t understand unless they’ve been there. Now I’m not complaining and wouldn’t trade it for anything, but sometimes it helps to laugh and know that other work at home moms deal with the same things.

So without further ado…enjoy!

10. What do you do all day?

9. You must have a lot of time on your hands being home every day!

8. You have the best of both worlds.

These are all things people have actually said to me. All with the best of intentions, no doubt. (Most of the time, anyway!) 🙂 I’ve learned to roll with it for the most part.
