Moms are the best. They nurture us, and provide us with love and comfort. They worry about us, and keep us out of harms way. They praise us for good conduct, and affectionately admonish us when we misbehave. They love and care for our fathers and our grandparents. Unfortunately, moms don’t seem to get the credit that they rightfully deserve. And then, there are the work at home moms. Like moms, they don’t seem to receive much credit either. So, who are they exactly, and why are they so great?
They Do the Best Juggling Acts
No, they are not circus clowns. With the exception of those who earn their living in the circus, moms do not parade around like Harpo Marx and make us laugh. Yet, they do the best juggling acts, and manage to keep things organized. First, they send their children off to school. Then, they run some family errands, and gather up all of the necessities for the household. They return home, turn on their computers, and work on their home businesses. At break-time, they start the dinner preparations. When break-time is over, they get right back on the computer to pick up where they left off. Finally, in the evening, they give a warm welcome to their children and spouses upon their return, and spend valuable time learning about their day. They perform all of these acts in just a few hours in the day, and yet make it look so easy. Undoubtedly, they are time management experts with many years of experience.
They Make the Best Repairmen
As a rule, we turn to a repairman when something is broken that we don’t have the tools, knowledge, or manpower to fix. Unless you were an auto mechanic, you would need to call one to fix your car’s faulty carburetor. Likewise, children call upon moms to fix problems. These problems range from tummy aches to backed-up toilets. However, they are just as capable of fixing flat tires as well. Like many moms, work at home moms are terrific troubleshooters. There are countless stories of moms who started home businesses when their spouses were either laid off from work or downsized. They put on their hardhats, and began researching work at home opportunities. Then, when they found just the right fit, they went to work immediately. Years later, many of these moms are now earning residual six-figure incomes. This makes them the best repairmen (or repairwomen, if you insist) who have ever lived.
They Treat Money With Respect
Have you ever noticed that, when moms shop, they always have their checkbooks handy? When they make a check purchase, they always write the amount in the checkbook receipt column. This is because moms practice the art of tracking their spending each time they shop. On occasion, you may come across a dad doing the same thing, but it is often the mom who does it more frequently. Work at home moms are obviously no different. They treat money as if it were the golden grail. They are very diligent about saving it, and are very careful and astute about how they spend it.
They Make a Mean Turkey Sandwich
There is no doubt that moms do lots of wonderful things that improve the quality of life. Yet, the one thing that they do that all men, children, and other women genuinely appreciate is that they cook like nobody’s business. They can take a single banana, and convert it into one of the most delicious banana cream pies known to the human tongue. Yes, there are some dads who are good cooks, but no one cooks like mom. Work at home moms labor in front of their computers, and earn incomes that you wouldn’t believe. Yet, they make the meanest turkey-on-rye sandwiches that are out of this world.
They Set Positive Examples for Their Children
If you want to see a good example of a positive role model, take a walk over to your nearest supermarket. The moms are always there. You’ll occasionally see them shopping alone, but there are times where you’ll often notice them being accompanied by their children. Like the baby cub in the jungle, the children are taught how to find a food source, and then track the evening’s delicacy. Moms teach their children how to read nutrition labels, check prices, and then make educated decisions on what to buy. They figure out how much they will spend, and how it will affect the household budget. Work at home moms teach their children the value of hard work, persistence, consistency, and patience. They set positive examples for their children.
