Is it wrong to be a working mom?
I am a very independent, self-relient women, and my mom was a working mom who I am extremely proud of and admire in every way. My future mother-in-law was a stay at home mom of three kids whose life revolved and still does, around her children. She once told me that she think its just horrible how mothers don't stay at home any more and she went on and on about how bad that is for the kids and their character, etc.... At that point I mentioned to her that my mom was a working mom who had to work full time to make ends meet. My dad had a decent job, but lets face it, without both incomes we would've been on food stamps. Then she preceded to tell me that if you work hard enough at it and pinch pennies here and there you can do it. She is assuming to know how life was for us, and that she could do it. I have nothing against stay at home moms, but I have a problem with comments such as hers when she has no clue what it was like for my mom and our family, and her daughter is much the same way. I find myself wanting even more to work and not have kids, due to such judgemental "mommies."
