Election 2012: Your stories
Outside Working Mother
I love my children. My children are my world and I love to see their smiling faces. I would have liked to take them for mid-day ice cream when everyone was at work and school, I would have liked to take them to the park when it was less crowded with other children. I would have even liked to go to Ci-Ci's Pizza during lunch for them to create their master piece pizza. Being a stay at home mom, which I have done in the past, is challenging. Temper tantrums, potty training, constant wining, and timeouts, along with house chores for everyone. However, when I did this, it was not an OPTION, it was because I could not find a job, or school would often pay more than a jobBut in the real world, I had to WORK OUTSIDE MY HOME. I had to punch a 9 TO 5 clock, fight traffic, deal with sexual harassment (not from my husband either), and other office drama.
I did not have a CHOICE to stay home with my $250 million dollar husband and iron his shirts.
Ann Romney, you are clueless to 99% of working women, moms or not, who struggle with working outside AND coming back home to take care of their families. Did you have a nanny too? Maybe, maybe not. I challenge Ann Romney to sit down and have a real discussion with Hilary Rosen or any other working outside of the house mom, about filling out resumes while rocking your baby. I would love to see her Dodge that question like Brooklyn. Until the next time, if you have a brain clog, send me a blog
