A Word from A WAHM

"It's Report Card Time"

© 1999, by Cheryl Demas
We all know them. Mothers who display their children's awards, test scores, and report cards like mounted hunting trophies on their walls and refrigerators. Our kids need to know we're proud of them, but where do we draw the line? I say we mothers deserve some recognition too. More than just a Sunday a May when we receive a card and potted plant.

Now, it's report card time again. But how long has it been since you received a report card?

If you're working at home, you are probably dealing with many challenges. Business issues, deadlines and lean times. Family issues, from unsupportive spouses to sick kids and family squabbles.

But you've kept at it. You are the one who is with your children all day, you know better than anyone else does what is best for them. You've dealt with the criticism and complaints. You've been there when your kids have needed you, and you're building a business at the same time. You are the model for the new workplace, the mothers of the future.

So it's about time you received a little recognition. Give yourself a pat on the back, better yet, give yourself a report card. Give yourself a big A+. Take down one or two of the kids' pictures and hang your report card on the refrigerator. The kids won't mind and you deserve it!
