You know you're a WAHM

A fellow WAHM sent this to me...

"You know you are a WAHM when your toddler won’t stay in her bed so you make a deal with her that if she stays in her bed, you’ll sit in her room with your ‘puter’ (that’s the way my daughter pronounces computer ). She goes to sleep and I get 20 minutes of email time."

You know you're a WAHM

A fellow WAHM sent this to me.

You Know You're a WAHM "When you think it's OK to squeeze in a little work BEFORE nap time even though it's easy to get wrapped up into what you are doing...and then you realize the kids are quiet and you look over to see why!"

WAHM Product Needed: Office Rocking Chair

Someone should invent a rocking chair that looks like an office chair.

All moms, especially work at home moms, would benefit from this type of chair.

Something comfortable to rock baby while surfing the internet or working, but stylish enough to look good in the home office.

My current chair rocks just slightly, but it's "clunky" and not smooth.

Anyone want to design this chair and let me test it out?
