Ahmnodt Heare for President

Stay-at-Home Moms

There has been a lot of hoopla over the comments Democratic Party strategist Hilary Rosen said about women who opt to stay at home to raise their children over getting a job and placing their children in day care.  I would like to say that there is nothing harder than being a stay-at-home mom.

I am not a mother, but I am a single father.  Though I do not have full custody of my daughter, I do have custody every other weekend and for a good portion of the summer.  It is difficult to raise a child and clean a house and run a business from my home.  It’s even more difficult adding “running for president” to the mix.

Most stay-at-home mothers do not run a business out of their home, but that doesn’t mean their day is easy.  Mothers never have a sick day.  They’re doing laundry, cleaning dishes, dusting, vacuuming, making beds, and other chores while having children to deal with.  Mothers prepare their meals, change their diapers, and explain to children that the mailman is “just a friend” who needs to lay down on her bed but hates to lay down alone.  The worst part is that they do not get a salary for all the work they do.  (They don’t even get a tip from the mailman.)

Before you decide to criticize women who choose to stay at home and raise their children, spend some time as a stay-at-home mom.  Now try it when you’re sick, have a headache, or are nursing an injury.  Do all of that and keep in mind that the best television has to offer during the workday is “Jerry Springer” and “The View.”

  3. Yeah, having been a stay at home mum for some time, I’d have to say I personally find babies boring, much as I adore mine. Boring work is hard work. But Mitt Romney’s wife – did she actually do all this housework and looking after kids? Isn’t he, and by extension she,fabulously rich and therefore probably able to hire help?

    • I don’t know what Ann Romney did during the day, but she did have a nanny. Even with a nanny, raising five children can’t be easy. Especially if any of the children were like me as a child.

  4. There’s a joke about a man who comes home one night. The front yard looks like a war zone. The inside of the house looks like it’s been tossed, burgled and maybe set on fire. He finds his wife sitting on the couch. He asks what happened. She says, “You know how you ask, ‘What did you do today?’ Well today I didn’t do it.”

    Hats off to stay at home moms!

    • Being a stay-at-home mom would be a lot easier if it wasn’t for the meddling kids.
