I’ve been a stay at home Mom for close to 16 years. Yes... I’ve gotten the comments like , “I thought you were smarter than THAT?!” and “What do you do all day... don’t you see your life as not productive”. That being said, I have also gotten comments from many women that simply have to work that they are envious. They would quit their job in a heart beat if they could afford it. Through the massive amount of taxes, many women don’t really have a “choice” and I personally believe that will hurt our Nation in the long run.
Pity their ignorance. I didn't anticipate the wisdom, patience, and creativity and other life skills I would develop during my stay at home years...it was supposed to be about THEM, not me. But in giving, one always gains.
