To Those Who Don't Think a Stay At Home Mom Is A Job:
I am a... Chef, Chauffeur, Maid, Nurse, Teacher, Artist, Songwriter, Storyteller, Referee, Disciplinarian, Entertainer, Personal Playground, Sounding Board, Therapist, Nightmare Chasing, Boo-boo Kissing, Playmate, Friend -I AM A MOTHER.
I do not get breaks. I do not get to "clock out". I do not get vacation time or sick days. I do not get to run into the store real quick. I do not get to sleep in. I do not get weekends or nights off. I do not get a pay check. I do not get a tax return. I do not get a thank you or a promotion. I do not get a twenty minute commute in peace. I do not get to pee by myself.
So Please don't insinuate that I do not have a job.
For those of you that are a stay at home mom, Please comment and let it be known that this is what we do on a DAILY basis!
