Working Mom vs. SAHM


While reading an article the other day I had an epiphany. The article was discussing the ongoing mommy war of Working moms vs. Stay at home moms which I have often found to be moronic. As soon as a woman is given the title mom she is working.  She is physically, mentally, and emotionally on the clock so to speak.  She is up at 3am for feedings, changing diapers, packing bags, giving baths, making meal, and those are just the physical requirements.

She is also modeling behavior regarding appropriate ways to interact with others, seek assistance, and compassion for her youngsters.  She is answering philosophical questions, and teaching basic vocabulary, cause and effect, colors, shapes, religion, etc.   She is also emotionally invested till the day she dies.  She will worry about the way her child is developing. She will wonder if she is doing everything she can and should be doing for her children. She will put immense pressure on herself and even blame herself for any social, physical, or physiological delay her child may experience.

As moms we question ourselves enough without the added pressure from other moms. Let the mom who is perfect, with perfect children, and home/household to be the first to pass judgment on another mother.

Some may say politicians, teacher, and religious leaders are the people who will have the most impact on the future, the ones who will write history.   I disagree with this factor; moms have the most important jobs on this planet, we directly influence the future generation.

Do you agree??

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!

    If only Moms would encourage one another and keep their “I vacumn and have sex everyday” boasts to themselves. It’s a hard job no matter if you’re home or working.

    Kat I love this! I completely agree that moms have the greatest impact on this world~! We are the ones who shape and mold children and then send them out in the world! I also hate the judgmental factor that comes between working moms and stay at home moms, we’re all moms who are doing the best for our kids!:)
