Is It Accurate to Describe Motherhood As An Actual “Job?”
You can read more by clicking on the link but to be honest, the way it's written left a bitter taste in my mouth. Is it just my imagination that it seemed very negative? What are your thoughts?
My comment on this:
I don't know. I mean, I do VERY much consider this a job and a life style. I quit the boring job I had to actually take care and raise my kids. I work much, much, much, much harder than I ever did working out in the field. (Sales, receptionist, customer service). I can't believe how many skills I had to gain with the six kids I have. It amazes me all the time. Yes, it's a job and also relationship. I never, ever imagined how much work would come with being a mom. I'm not just cuddling a cute baby all day long. I'm cooking, cleaning, organizing, debating, driving, changing, etc. The list goes on. When my kids are all raised someday and I enter the work force again, working a retail job or any kind of customer service again will be a breeze for me. "What? You want me to take that call? I get to sit in a chair uninterrupted with no diaper changing? Huh? I even get breaks throughout the day with no interruptions? Wow! What did you say? I get a PAYCHECK? Holy cow!"
LOL, just some thoughts I had on this. Made me laugh thinking out loud about it.
I'm not putting anyone down that has to work. Please don't get me wrong. Back before I had a family, that was hard for me and some people work very demanding jobs (like my dad). I just think this war and debate between women can be a little silly. Everyone just has their own personal opinions on it. That's that.
