I know very few “stay-home” moms who are not employed. Almost all of them work from home, or take in day care kids, or work nights.
And of the “working” moms, I know very few who do not have to wrangle a certain amount of flexibility out of their job, because they are the first call the school/day care will make when the kids are sick.
We are all just sprinting to try to get the next thing done, on time if we are lucky.
That is why my new favorite thing is the Manic Mommies podcast, which is hilarious. I haven’t joined the community, but I am working my way through all the old episodes, and I laugh out loud at work all the time. My coworkers already think I’m crazy, so this should just confirm that for them.
