I will not lie – working at home is…amazing. I say this as someone who considers themselves an introvert. The office place is just an area that I have no desire to be in. The loud noises, the office dramas, the toxic co-workers and the boss from hell can be a frustrating experience to endure.
For me, as an introvert, there is nothing better than to be able to make money at home by myself. But for stay at home moms, with kids I might add, the experience may very well not be too dissimilar.
In a hilarious and brilliant clip of a mother who once worked at an office and transitioned to stay at home and work, we discover that with children at home; work can be just as demanding if not MORE demanding.
The office desks from Furniture At Work clip was an excellent representation of the hassle that may come from working at home. And it is a bit disconcerting how the same mannerism that could be found in toddlers were also in grown adults.
However, what really stood out and what was so profound – and really emphasizes my point that working at home is great – came down to the mother’s assertion that working at home and at an office is not too dissimilar, but what makes working at home better is that she was around much cuter workers; i.e. her children.
That was such a touching scene and illustrates that it may very well be a bit more trying to work at home as a stay at home mom with children – along with having to schedule your day and work with unruly kids – but you can’t put a price on being your own boss and being surrounded by people you love…even, if they are making work harder for you.
