But What Do You Really Do All Day?

Many people seem to feel that as a stay-at-home parent or when you work from home, one would have time to sit around with their feet up, enjoying themselves. Time to volunteer at the many school functions or elsewhere, time to do all those things that people who work don't have time to do. While usually unspoken, that stay-at-home person often perceives others thinking, "But she should have plenty of time, she's home all day..." Maybe it's hard to consider it "work" when someone is still in their pajamas. Maybe the problem really is our own perceptions, that, when you're still in your pajamas, you don't feel like what you're doing is legitimate work.
