Are any of you college moms or stay at home moms? Well, I’be been one on and off for almost 10 years. I got my Associate’s Degree in Education while I had my son. After he turned 2, I decided it was a good time to start working in the school system while my mom watched my son. Anyways, I worked for about 3 years until I had my 2nd child and did the whole stay at home mom thing again because my mom moved away and I had no choice to be a stay at home mom once again. Daycare was never an option for my husband and I to put our kids in. I am now pursuing my bachelors degree at WGU and hope that once I done my daughter will start pre-K and I can officially continue my career as an educator and put my stay at home mom job behind me once and for all as I do not plan on having more children. Let me tell you, it’s not a joke when they say motherhood is the toughest job ever…even harder when you are juggling college classes. Mine are online which make it a bit easier in my opinion, rather than attending a campus. But it’s working out great. I do have to give credit to my husband for helping me through this time because he is the one that occupies the kids while I take an exam or need to work on an assignment for my classes. I think having a spouse that supports you makes everything a bit easier. If you are a single mom and doing it all on your own, hats off to you!! You are truly supermom!
