Being a stay at home Mom (or Dad) comes with a lot of responsibilities that require a lot of your time. The moment you have kids at home, it may seem impossible to leave the house and have a 9-5 job. Balancing your time for work, time for kids, and household chores isn’t very easy to do.
But thankfully, you don’t have to go between watching your kids and leaving them with a babysitter. There are plenty of jobs where you can actually do it from the comfort of your own home.
