Can I say something without anyone jumping down my throat? While being a mother, whether it is stay at home or not, is obviously a FULL TIME job- what about us mothers who DO IT ALL? When you live in priveledge, it is easier to get to be a stay at home mom. I have never utilized child care services, my husband and I work opposite schedules to ensure one of us is always with our children. But I go to school full time, work 30 hours a week, clean, cook, shop, pay bills, do laundry, and have never missed anything related to one of my three children. I have volunteered at their school for various activities, made it to every band/chorus/ open house etc. etc. any of the has ever had.
