A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.) She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."
But, then, I thought, what the heck, self? SAHM is a career.
She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the year, you can pretend like you don't have a job and stay home with your kids."
Now, anyone with half a brain knows what she means, but this is the message that society gives stay at home moms every day. You don't have a job. You get to stay at home with your kids.
You don't have a job. You get to stay at home with your kids.
I think it's time to break this down. Why do people insist on telling stay at home moms that they don't work?
