I would like to make something clear.
My Stay At Home Mom Challenge post was not a throw down to working moms.
It was not a who-has-it-harder-working-moms-or-stay-at-home-moms kind of thing.
Like I said in the post, it was a throw down to the people who question what I do all day and you assholes who think we stay at home moms are a joke.
I think there are moms who love staying home with their kids who are fortunate enough to be able to do so.
I think there are moms who would love to be able to stay home with their kids but who are forced to work outside the home because they need the money.
I think there are moms who could use the money but who also are also happy to have a job to go to each day.
And then I think there are moms who would go completely fucking batshit crazy if they had to stay home with their kids full time and would never even consider doing that.
I think there are pros and cons to all sides.
I think some people are suited to staying home with their kids and some are not.
I do not judge women who choose to have full time careers or who have to have full time careers.
I do not think stay at home moms are better than anyone else.
I also don’t think there are really any moms who would question how hard it is to be home with your kids 24/7, whether you work in, out, above, or below your house.
But I know there are assholes who believe that stay at home moms have it made.
That it’s easy.
Assholes who can’t fathom why the house would be a mess or why there are days when we fantasize about drinking before noon.
Assholes who believe we stay at home moms don’t pull our own weight.
Assholes named Chuck who are so fucking stupid they’d leave this comment on my blog:
I think all you mommy’s need to get jobs instead of letting your husbands provide for you and wasting your day on blogs! Maybe you should all spend some of your blog time in the gym being I’m sure your a frumpy beat up rag that wishes a man would look in her direction, spend more time bettering yourself and your own life …
Relax working moms.
That challenge wasn’t for you.
It was for Chuck.
But Chuck’s got his head shoved so far up his ass that I’m pretty sure he never read one word of it.
