If you are a mom, you work.
End of story.
I am sick of all this crap about working mothers versus stay at home mothers.
Lately I see a lot of stuff from memes to blog posts to hearing it from people I know that staying at home is so easy.
I used to hear it from both sides.
The stay at home moms are quiet, as of late.
I've been on both sides and in both you don't get it all.
Like everything in life, there is a trade off.
I work at home and don't get a paycheck.
But, I work.
Many a times, I work my ass off.
Mothers that are employed outside the home work.
And work hard.
They get paid for their work.
There are times that I am so tired from cleaning, gardening, canning, and whatever else I am doing that day that cooking a meal is not something I want to do.
But, with staying home, comes not affording the little extras.
But, when you work outside the home, you might only have time for convenience foods because you still have to take care of things around the house.
I know when I worked outside the home, we had to buy convenience foods because I wasn't home to cook or if I was I didn't have time or didn't want to do much.
It is nice not having to go punch a clock.
But, sometimes it really sucks staying home all the time.
