Wala din akong ginawa kundi mag lists ng PROS and CONS ko why I need to work. Nanalo talaga ng PROS, problem ko ngayon kung papayagan pa ako magstay sa current job ko eh hindi pa ako regular.

my reasons for still working:

1. Ako ang breadwinner... I am always the breadwinner sa family namin magmula nun makagraduate ako ng college, it is my choice na pahintuin na magwork si nanay kasi naawa na din ako sa kanya...Sa ngayon na may family na din ako, napag-usapan namin ni hubby na siya na lang hihinto sa work (ayaw kasi namin na walang kasama magulang si baby lalo na at ala pa siya one year).  Since mas malaki income ko ke hubby at mas madami benefits samin, siya un nag-quit sa work niya...

At least, ngayong ako ang nagwowork, nakakabili kami kahit pano ng mga gusto namin, nakakakain kami maayos, there is money to pay the bills, money for baby, un nga lang, napakaliit pa ng savings namin...as in maliit...

2. Kasi samin pa din nakatira mom at bro ko, whose still in college so talagang kahit may work si hubby, ako din work for my family naman, to support them...

3. Working to buy the things that I want for myself....

4. Self fulfillment, kasi di pa nag-aral tayo ng less than 20 years tapos mahihinto lang sa house, kahit papano, nagagamit natin napag aralan natin

5. Para hindi ma-stagnant un utak, kasi dami challenges di ba sa daily working life....

@ mami che, I have watched I don;t know how she does it sa DVD (pirated only hehe)..nakakaaliw nga un...

Like what some mommies wrote here, yes sayang naman ang pinagaralan kung ibuburo ko lang ang utak ko sa bahay para ano pa at nagpakahirap ang parents ko at ako na makapag tapos kung sa bahay lang din ako.
Another is sa hirap ng buhay ngayon, sayang ang kikitain ko..malaking tulong din iyon kung maidadagdag sa mga needs ng family namin specially sa future ng Son namin. Besides puwede naman pagsabayin ang pagtatrabaho, sa pagiging Ina at Asawa.

Hi sissies. newbie here.  :)

ako naman, kailangan ko talagang magwork. same reason with other moms here na nagbabayad ng amortization ng bahay monthly out of my salary din. hindi ako pwedeng huminto ng work kasi, masakit mang tanggapin, hindi kaya ng hubby ko na sya lang magprovide sa min. i have 3 kids so kailangan talaga 2 kaming nagwowork. for their future.

i work primarily out of necessity.  but it's okay, i can't imagine not working anyway. it's difficult, sometimes, to juggle everything, but i like being productive and having my own income.  :)

I love the statement ng mga sisses natin MAHIRAP ANG MAGING MAHIRAP

Though I have the best of both worlds, working (online and business) and stay at home full time mom and wifey, ayoko din maging mahirap. we are not well off by the way. But better ang gusto ko. We are in a comfortable state kaya as much as possible ok lang and we go higher.

HIndi ko kayang ma imagine na hindi kami makakapagprovide sa immediate needs ng daughter ko. Most especially sa mga emergency needs niya. ANg hirap if we dont have the money.

Here are my top reasons why I'm a working mom.

1. I am the breadwinner, when my hubby stopped working from abroad and had difficulty in finding jobs here. I looked for a job and luckily I was able to get one. As years go by, my hubby wasn't that successful in his jobs, I do not know kung na-depress na siya sa hirap ng work, ganun lang yung kinikita niya, compared sa abroad. Sabi ko ganun talaga kailangan mag-tiyaga. So I decided to let him stay with the kids and I support the family.

2. Initially, we only planned for 1 child but we were given 2 more and I have to support them all alone, including my husband.

3. My hubby and I do not have other relatives or families who can help us financially, so I still NEED to work.

4. 2 of my kids are already studying and yes, again. I still NEED to work.

5. We've had yayas, had a lot of bad experiences, so I do not trust my kids with other people, so my hubby stays at home with them.

Sa'kin it's not really a choice but something I have to do to put food on the table but I will never give-up!  ;)

Hi mga sis! :)

Been a working mom since I gave birth to my daughter (she's four years and four months old now). But I also tried to be a full mom from Oct2010 upto Nov2011. And masasabi ko during full time mom ako sobrang luwag ng schedule and satisfied with everyday household chores and taking care of our daughter. Kaso marami rin times na naiinip ako at hinahanap yung work load ko when I'm a college instructor. Then, I got hired with a company to secure job experience naman sa IT industry. Eto currently sobrang busy hindi lang sa work load na naka-assign sakin but also my traveling time. :( Sobrang adjust ako sa pagpasok ko somewhere in Ortigas. Dati kasi super lapit lang ng college school pinapasukan ko. Ngayon eto need to allot 1.5hrs sa biyahe. Pero tama na lang na bumalik ako sa pagtatrabaho kasi lumalaki na rin expenses namin at isa pa mag-aaral na rin daughter namin. Sabi nga ni hubby basta kung nag-e-enjoy ako at gusto ko pa rin go lang daw ako sa pagwo-work.

Cheers sa mga working moms! :)

Wala din akong ginawa kundi mag lists ng PROS and CONS ko why I need to work. Nanalo talaga ng PROS, problem ko ngayon kung papayagan pa ako magstay sa current job ko eh hindi pa ako regular.

Nakakainspire :)

Mommy swtgrl_bee, mukhang may klasmeyt na ako sa pag-absent sa work ah! Haha! Ako din dami ko na absent this month, dami kasi chores and may times pa nagkakasakit kami ni daughter ko.  Wala na nga akong leaves e. Hehe.  Don't worry sis, di naman sobrang magba-based ang regularization mo solely sa attendance mo...especially if family naman ang reason ng absences mo, as long as nadedeliver mo naman ng ayos ang mga work tasks mo. :)

Hmm...my reasons for being a working mom:

1. Pinilit ako ng hubby ko (correction, pinilit niya ako magwork sa current employer ko ngayon.  If I had a choice, I should have a different career that would enable me to manage more my time between work and family).

2. My parents expect me to have a decent job.  For them, ito na ang "bayad" sa tuition fees na ginastos nila during my school yearssss.

3. I want to practice what I learned during college.  Practicing it inspires the students of my course to pursue their studies (hindi kasi sobrang kilala yung course/major namin e).  Ayoko kasi na iisipin ng mga estudyante ng major namin na walang nakukuhang trabaho yung course namin after graduation.

4. I have this sense of service to help those in need by training them the right knowledge and skills they need in order for them to develop as a person.

5. Self fulfillment.  I may not be a career oriented person who wants to get promoted every promotion cycle.  But doing something good and beneficial for the team somehow makes me feel worthy.

6.  Financial reasons.  Yung kinikita ko ang ginagamit namin ng hubby ko na pambili ng mga WANTS namin--- pang date, pangbili ng clothes na gusto namin na medyo expensive, pang-out of town namin, pambili ng toys ng daughter namin.... (yung kinikita naman ng hubby ko is more of pang-NEEDS namin).

I am not expecting myself to be a corporate working mom for the rest of my life.  But I wanted to work, probably not in a corporate institution.  Pwedeng homebased work or small business.  Ok naman na stay at home nalang sana pero pag mangyari yun, hindi magiging enough ang kita ni hubby para makapag-save and maka-purchase ng mga "wants" na gusto namin...basic lang ang makakaya...and I don't think mabubuhay ang asawa ko sa basic needs lang kasi lumaki siya na nakakapurchase siya ng "luho" niya like gadgets, etc...

Sometimes, nakakapagod din naman ang pagiging working mom pero kelangan kase wala namang work si hubby eversince. Kase undergrad sya ng college at tinamad na maghanap ng work pero mas okey na din kase siya lahat ang gumagawa sa bahay at nagaalaga ng beybi. Pero siguro kung talagang magkakaroon na siya ng work, mas gugustuhin ko pa din magwork kase nabibili ko ang gusto ko na di na kelangan humingi sa iba, nakakapagbigay pa din ako sa parents ko kahit me sarili na akong pamilya at isa pa di ako sanay na nasa bahay lang.

Yay! dami pala working moms here at SP.. :)

Me too.. I'm juggling 3 careers now and its not really easy - Im able to manage it but really nakakapagod minsan at wants to lets go one of my career. And during those times Im on the verge of quitting, i keep reminding myself I need to do this while  im young for my family (not just for my own but also my parents)

I work because:
1. I mainly dont wanna let down my parents. They spent alot for my education.
2. Im saving for rainy days. We (me and my husband) has joint acct and we both have our own which we know naman. I dont ask money from him (only in cases where its about my son or our business) and he does too.
3. Security. Having my own money and work means I have more say in my life - i am not dependent of my husband.
4. Fulfillment. I could give money to my parents even if they dont ask and buy things I want for myself and for my husband and kid. I could throw an event from my savings and not asking much from him.

Im so grateful that I have a husband who even asked me I could quit and just manage being a mom and a businesswoman (lately ko lang kc nmanage family business which was a request long time ago by my dad - they want to retire na.. hindi keri ng powers ko :). Pero me personally chose na din to work for govt sa dami ng benefits kakahinayang..

Kaya Kudos to all working moms.. super hirap ng trabahong ito!
