SAHM – Stay at home mom.
WAHM – Work at home mom.
WOHM – Work outside the home mom.
There are many labels out there to classify just what type of mami you are.
I am what you would consider a WOHM, since I work full-time outside the home. I’m also commonly referred to as a working mother.
Why is it that Working Mom is an identity all its own, with support groups and message boards and blogs and research – and Working Dad is little more than an after thought?
I have to admit that I’ve never really heard the term working dad and have not heard any dads classify themselves as one.
But…my husband…he’s a working dad. He struggles with many of the same issues I do in trying to find a balance between the work and home lives.
But, why is it different for men?
