There are many reasons to work from home as a mom, but these are some of the biggest reasons to try it.

- This will end.

- You can fit everything into the time you have if you have control over your calendar.
- While you will have some distractions from your children, they are a pleasure, you won’t have any from co-workers stopping by your desk to gossip.

You Can Balance Your Time Better
- Having control of your calendar is an amazing thing.
- You can write in all the important things you need to do as a mom and arrange work around that.
