I have been a full time stay at home mom. I have been a full time working mom. Although I felt fulfilled doing each (tired too), I also always felt judged by the women standing on that thick green grass
over there.


When I was a full time stay at home mom it felt as though there were working moms everywhere I went. They
made me feel less of a woman because I was at home all day. I must not
have any skills to be productive in the real world. As if I got out of
bed at noon just in time for my soaps and ate chips all day. My home
had to be spotless. If company came over with a dirty dish in the sink I
felt that look. You know the one that says, "What have YOU been
doing all day?" I also got the look from my husband if dinner wasn't on
time.

When I was a full time working mom I felt judged by the stay at home moms. They knew their
children better than I did. They had clean homes, clean children and
dinner on the table on time every night. They also picked up my slack at
school by volunteering all the time. They thought I was selfish because
I put a job before my children.

Only now I have embraced who I am as a wife and mother. I am no better no worse than any other mom, working or not. SAHM or working
outside the home, we all want the best for our children. We are all
doing the best we can... and the grass looks the same on both sides of
the fence.

All mothers are working mothers. ~Author Unknown
