Mom Blog Name:Feminine Wiles
Twitter Member Name:@CheriWiles
Why Did You Begin Blogging:I was going through a divorce and blogging was a way for me to stay in touch with friends and family and "show" them that I was doing just fine, even though I wasn't always up to telephone calls. Writing is great therapy -- and it lets me share some of my favorite recipes, too.
Reasons for Being a Stay-at-Home Mom:Two children, ages 14 and 12
Before Becoming a Stay-at-Home Mom:Self-employed copywriter.
Most Rewarding Part of Being a SAHM:Being there for my children.
They know they can count on me.
Biggest Challenge You Face as a SAHM:There can be times of feeling disconnected, but I've been "at home" now for 10 years, so a lot of that has dissipated. Maybe a bigger challenge for me is getting motivated and setting deadlines for the "un-fun" stuff, like cleaning out the garage and attic!
Best Advice for Other Stay-at-Home Moms:Stick with it! As far as I can tell, our children need our guidance and support more -- not less -- as they get older.
