moms who also go to school

does anyone ever ask you 'do you work?' And you say 'no I go to school' and they're like 'oh.'

I don't get it, do people expect us to shrivel up and die because we're moms? Even on facebook and myspace when I say something 'intellegent' (the latest example is when I made an update about the electra complex) my hs friends in college tried to educate me on what that was and I was like 'ummmm I know. I had a baby I didn't fall off the face of the earth'

Really, am I the only one who feels this way?

  • I am a ten mom and I am a Junior in high school. People are always like "It is really too bad you aren't in school, it is so important." and I am in school. I am not sure why people assume that moms cant continue education and some socializing.

  • Oh yes, some people think I'm selfish for going to college while my husband works his butt off.
    What people don't know, though, is that I am also a full-time "mom" to my 6 month old granddaughter who lives with me, I maintain the housecleaning and the meals, I keep all the laundry clean for 6 people, I care for our pets, I maintain what I can of our yard, I am the accountant of the family who maintains the budget, balances the checkbook, and pays the bills, I run all the errands and am the taxi for everyone who needs to go to activities, friends, doc appts, or anywhere else.
    My husband has a tough and demanding job, but he needs my help at home so he can keep his focus on his job and not worry about things at home. My going to college is a luxury that I've earned through 20 years of working my butt off in dead-end jobs.
    Ahhhh, that felt so good to get that out of my
    Thanks for asking! ♥
