The 22 Jobs of a Stay-at-Home Mom

22 jobs of a stay at home momSAHMs are some of the hardest working people in the entire world, but somehow when you're not bringing home a paycheck, the outside world might not get the clue. This week Multiple Mama got confirmation of this inaccurate assumption by the IRS. (Well, an employee of her accountant -- but close enough.)

Apparently the mere act of driving hours to drop off her (extended) tax return with a toddler and twin babies in tow did not impress the assistant to her CPA who, upon discovering the lack of a W2 asked, "You don't work?"

While she explained she had three full-time jobs, I thought I'd break it down a little bit more for you so if you do find yourself asking a SAHM about her employment, you'll stop and remember her job description.

Here are 22 jobs SAHMs do on a full-time basis.

  1. Babysitter
  2. Chauffeur
  3. Physician
  4. Chef
  5. Housekeeper
  6. Psychologist
  7. Sociologist
  8. Referee
  9. Lactation Specialist
  10. Professional Athlete
  11. Gardener
  12. Personal Shopper
  13. Seamstress
  14. Reality Show Contestant (Yes, everyone is watching ... and judging.)
  15. Clown
  16. Stand-up Comedienne
  17. Electrician
  18. Handywoman
  19. Home Organizer
  20. Secretary
  21. Coach
  22. Lifeguard
