To which Mark Webb responded:

#1 defines a "working mom". Whether working at home or somewhere else is
irrelevant. Normally, it involves the exchange of money.
#2 is a "stay-at-home" mom, (significantly) busy with her home and family,
directly involved with bringing home the bacon (normally money).

To which I respond:

#1 defines any worker who works from home and happens to have children
around. It could be a working dad, sibling, or grandparent as well. If you
change the word "children" to "family members," it could also apply to all
of those who work at home and take care of any family member who needs

My question would be not whether where someone works is relevant, but how
one's family status is relevant to where one works.
