YES! I am going to go there.... SAHM vs Working MOMs.....
It's been post after post after post..... and yes, I understand the irony that I am posting yet another....BUT
I have been both a full-time working mom for 5 years and now a SAHM for almost 5 years.
BOTH have their challenges, both have their rewards.....
I understand that working mom's have to do everything a SAHM does PLUS they have a job. But when there is no one at home (kids at school or day care and parents are at work), the house doesn't need the attention that a SAHM mom that has 2 kids at home all day does....... so there is a bit more house work, dirty dishes, dirty floors, bathrooms, etc that a working mom doesn't have.
However, SAHM's have the opportunity to be available for school activities,etc but they don't make their own money, so their contribution financially isn't there......while Working moms have a bit more independence, making money for the good of the home....
Both are great!!!!
There are many others that i haven't thought of right now, but my point is that it doesn't flipping matter whether you're a SAHM or a working mom. Either can be a good or bad mom. But just because you're a working mom doesn't mean you are neglecting your family, it just means your sacrifices are different. AND just because you are a SAHM doesn't mean you're lazy... your sacrifice is different than that of a working mom!
So give it all a rest!!!! We all have responsibilites.... lets just worry about our own responsibilities, put on our big girl panties and move along. That is all we can really do for each other!
