I've gotten two sides:

1) Someone who stays at home, works PT or FT at a job non-related to
household duties, and is available for the children.

2) Someone who stays at home and only does house-related duties and
takes care of the children.

This is my dilemma, to me the implication of "stay-at-home mom" is that
one doesn't work FT but is home to take care of the child(ren).

I am getting into a scrap with my attorney over this wording, because he
feels that stay-at-home mom implies #1, whereas I think it implies #2. I
work mostly from home, but do not consider myself a stay-at-home mom,
although from 2:00 PM on every day I am interrupted with homework
questions, and requests for grilled cheese sammies.
