I’ve been working for three months on my daughter’s first birthday party. Overkill…yes I know. But none the less, it has been a lot of work and very stressful. Everything I make for the party takes time and time is the one thing I don’t have! Yes, I’m a SAHM, but I watch my kids all day so the only time I have to work on other things is in the evenings and at night. My kids aren’t old enough to do things for themselves, so I cook 4 meals a day for them, wash laundry almost every day, clean, change diapers for my daughter every hour it seems like, and take my son to the potty at least 3-4 times a day (and usually at the most inopportune times). So…I made this eCard today.
I actually don’t involve myself in the war between working moms and SAHMoms. I’ve done both, and personally, I think they both suck. No matter how you slice it, moms of both kinds have to work at certain things all day (either with the kids or with their jobs) and they have to do chores at night (housecleaning, projects for the kids, etc). Neither type of mom just works a 40 hour work week, far from it.
