DS1 is 4 and DS2 is 16 months. Prior to being a mum I worked in corporate HR. I went back to work part time for 6 months or so after DS1 was born but left when my DH was offered a work transfer to a new location. So for the last 2.5 years I have been a SAHM which for the most part I enjoy. DH has suggested I should look for some work I can do from home to I guess keep my brain ticking along! Mainly I think for my own sense of self worth rather than from a financial point of view as we are very fortunate for me to not “have to” work. I quite like the idea of doing something part time from home but I honestly have no idea what! I have no talents (other than talking and eating chocolate ) so there is no ideal business opportunity which jumps out at me.

My DH has a busy stressful senior corporate role which involves very long hours and a fair bit of international travel. We have no family near us to assist with child care. For this reason I don’t want to be returning to the corporate world as all childcare when they are sick, getting them too and from care, getting them home fed, bathed and put to bed on a working day would all fall on me.

I’d love to hear from other SAHM mums on what kind of thing they do for self satisfaction and additional $$
