Working Mom V/s Stay-At-Home Mom – Is there a better word to describe them?

It was a tweet which triggered a conversation and this blog post. And the tweet-crafter was Madhavan Narayan (whose Twitter profile reads as Columnist/Journalist/ Tech Writer, Hindustan Times, Delhi. Music and movie lover. Alleged poet).

This was what he tweeted
On a separate note, I immensely enjoy his tweets because they almost always loaded with wit, wisdom, real-life experiences, poetry, humor – so they give ample food for the left and right side of your brain!

As I pondered over this, I recognized that being a woman and working (whether at home or outside) go together. Being a mother and working have to co-exist. There just is no way for it to work otherwise.

So I asked for suitable alternatives. The new descriptors that I liked are:
Stay-At-Home Mother = HomeSlogger

Working Mother = OFHO (Office and Home) Sloggers OR Careerist Mom

What do you think is a befitting word? Leave a comment to let me know
