WAHM - what's your biggest struggle?

I know there are quite a few WAHMs on here. Wondering what each of you struggle with most?

I always find it's hard to make myself stop working and remind myself to spend time on myself and my kids. They get used to me saying "one more minute while I finish working" and I have to remind myself that I quit my career to be at home with them!!

        Totally agree with this as well Sheila!! There are some days I just feel completely uninspired and would rather just sit on the couch! I don't think that's exclusive to WAHMs though... that's everyone!! ;)

        Lol When I was still working I used to wake up some days and wonder if I would get fired if I just didn't show up for work.

          My struggle is with Charlie's schedule. He has none. I work at noon and like clockwork, he wakes up within 10 minutes of me starting my shift. I do not let him cry it out so it's near impossible some days to juggle him and my work. Luckily the bf is home for lunch around that time so I do get an hour of help, but after he leaves again it gets tough. Not complaining, I have it easy compared to a lot of moms. But that's what I struggle with.

            My struggle is that when I'm home, I hate to spend any time doing anything but being with my daughter. I feel like I spend so much of it away from her, it's hard to have to ignore her when I'm present. I bet that will change when she gets older, though.

              I just started to think about getting a wahj, but I didn't found anything till now. I found a website, that is mostly full with stupid things, I just refused few "projects" because there, I think are after other things, than excel work or something near to this, I was contacted on the application messenger of some men and those men just wanted to speak with me thru skype and I refused this kind of conversation. It's not an honorable thing for me and I am so disappointed and I have such a bad feeling because of this.
              What WAHJ do you have, I need an ideea . I don't know what can I do
