Kind of Irritated

I feel kind of irritated. I was reading a comment in another journal that seemed somwhat condescending to women who choose to be stay at home moms, "barefoot and pregnant" was actually in the comment.

UGH! As most SAHMs know being a stay at home mom is hard work! I have never worked so hard in my life as being a SAHM. As a matter of fact sometimes I would love to go back to work to get a break, (and work was retail on my feet dealing with customer complaints, etc.) It is hard work to raise decent human beings and should not be considered inferior to "professional careers".

As I work to finish my education I may work at least part-time outside of the home again, but whatever I do professionally will never give me so much satisfaction as my family. I am fortunate to be married to someone who recognizes and respects my important place in the family, and does not believe I do "nothing all day."

BTW If the poster in the other journal knew anything about being pregnant, being barefoot is actually the best, because pregnant feet can swell up something awful. ;) j/k
